Celtic are finally closing in on Royal Antwerp right-back Aurelio Buta, according to The Athletic’s Kieran Devlin.
The Lowdown: Buta links
Buta was first linked with a move to Parkhead on Saturday by journalist Ekrem Konur.
The Latest: Devlin post
Devlin shared a story on what Celtic fans should expect from Buta on Wednesday morning.
“So it looks like Celtic are (finally) closing in on a right-back. Spent yesterday looking at Buta. Positives: Excellent final ball Very quick Room for improvement: Defending Uncertain whether he can do the inverted role”
The Verdict: Much-needed
Although Buta’s likely arrival is too late for when it comes to Celtic’s Champions League hopes, at least he’ll hopefully be ready for the new domestic season.
Who knows, Postecoglou might even want another one to rival Buta, with Croatian Josip Juranovic another name to be linked with a Glasgow switch.
