The Latest: Parkhead visit
Sky Sports shared a story on Thursday, claiming Celtic are still interested in Couto, who has a number of clubs across Europe chasing his signature.
Couto is still considering his options, with the Hoops hopeful of securing a season-long loan deal.
Mark Hendry of Herald and Times Sport posted on Twitter on Thursday evening, revealing Couto ‘is in Glasgow’ to watch Celtic play Jablonec.
The Hoops ran out 3-0 winners at Celtic Park, with two goals from David Turnbull and one from James Forrest.
The Verdict: Sign
Celtic still want a right-back and a winger this summer, so bringing in Couto could help Ange Postecoglou in both those areas.
The Hoops will need to pip a number of clubs to Couto, but if they do, it could prove to be a real coup due to him being versatile and a young in-demand talent.
