Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou is closing in on signing Legia Warsaw’s Josip Juranovic, according to The Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Juranovic’s 2021/22 season
How many more signings do Celtic need this summer?
The Latest: Daily Record report
The Daily Record shared a Celtic-related story on Wednesday evening regarding Juranovic and Thomas Henry.
They claimed that Postecoglou is closing in on signing Juranovic in a deal worth £3m.
Postecoglou has reportedly turned his attention to Juranovic after struggling in attempts to sign Aurelio Buta and George Baldock.
The Verdict: Shrewd move
Juranovic has started this season as a right-midfielder, but you’d expect he’ll rival Anthony Ralston to be first-choice right-back, should a move to Celtic get over the line as expected by The Daily Record.
Postecoglou only has Ralston and Lee O’Connor as right-back options at this moment in time, so a £3m deal for Juranovic appears to be a smart move at first glance as he has made over 100 appearances in that area.
It’s good to see that Juranovic will be capable of playing further forward if required, as he has shown in recent weeks, and it appears as if he’ll become Celtic’s eighth summer signing.
