Celtic’s move for Legia Warsaw right-back appears to be off, according to Polish reporter Tomasz Wlodarczyk.
The Lowdown: Juranovic links
The Hoops are after a new right-back and have been linked with Juranovic for a number of weeks now.
However, that doesn’t appear to be the case, and it seems as if Celtic may now move for Manchester City’s Yan Couto instead.
Who did you want Celtic to sign?
The Latest: Wlodarczyk’s post
He suggested that a move to Scotland has now “expired” and that the Hoops have other options, saying: “As far as I know, the transfer of Josip Juranovic to Celtic Glasgow has now expired. Scots have other options.”
Wlodarczyk went on to claim that Celtic don’t have the money for the Croatian and will ‘probably’ loan Couto instead.
The Verdict: Couto the key
As long as Celtic bring in a right-back before the end of the transfer window, then there shouldn’t be too much panic at Parkhead.
Couto was present at Celtic Park on Thursday for the 3-0 win over Jablonec and seemingly liked what he saw
Hopefully that will put the Hoops at the front of the line for his services on a season-long loan, and should he sign, perhaps some supporters may forget all about Juranovic in a few months’ time.
