Celtic: Hoops open talks for Mario Vuskovic - Celtic

Celtic have begun talks with Hajduk Split over a move for defender Mario Vuskovic, according to The Scottish Sun.

The Lowdown: Vuskovic profiled

Vuskovic is 19 years of age and is valued at £5.85m by Transfermarkt. He has six caps for Croatia at Under-21 level and has already racked up 44 appearances at club level for Hajduk Split.

Primarily a centre-back, Vuskovic can also play as a defensive midfielder and a right-back and stands at 6ft 2.

His current contract runs until 2024, but reports have suggested that Split chiefs have decided to cash in on the teenager this summer.

The Latest: Latest report

The Scottish Sun lead with a title that the Hoops are closing in on the Hajduk Split star.

Postecoglou’s appointment and Wednesday arrival in Glasgow has sparked Celtic into action.

A £5m fee was touted in the report, adding that Vuskovic could now become Postecoglou’s first signing as Celtic boss.

Hoops scouts know all about Vuskovic after watching him on multiple occasions last season, and it seems as if the new Celtic manager is happy for a move to materialise.

The Verdict: A much-needed addition

Central defensive additions appear to be required at Parkhead, so the potential arrival of Vuskovic could ease Postecoglou’s centre-back worries.

Kristoffer Ajer has made it clear he wants to leave Celtic this summer, so should he seal a move away, that would leave Postecoglou with Stephen Welsh and the injured Christopher Julien as the club’s only senior options.

That isn’t exactly ideal, especially with a Champions League qualifier a month away, so it could be handy to get defensive reinforcements through the door as soon as possible.

It seems as if that is what the Hoops are trying to do with Vuskovic, and if the latest update is anything to go by, they have a real chance of bringing him to Scotland.
