Ange Postecoglou has made Aaron Mooy a top Celtic transfer target, according to 90min.
The Lowdown: Rumours of a Mooy approach
Postecoglou has been heavily linked with two Australian internationals after he took over at Parkhead; Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan and Mooy.
The pair both worked with Postecoglou during his four-year stint as Australia manager, and it seems as if the 55-year-old has made Mooy a top target.
The Latest: Recent report
According to 90min, Postecoglou has asked Celtic to prioritise a deal for Mooy this summer.
Sources informed the site that the Hoops hierarchy are still keen on a deal for James McCarthy, however, they are eager to back a specific recommendation from Postecoglou when it comes to Mooy.
The report adds that a deal could cost Celtic around £4m for the 30-year-old, who was described as a ‘game-changer’ by pundit Kevin Campbell last month.
The Verdict: Good signs
It’s good to see that the Hoops are eager to grant Postecoglou his wish when it comes to signing Mooy.
He’s a player the Hoops boss knows well, and it could’ve been easy for Celtic officials to brush off signing Mooy in favour of a free transfer for McCarthy.
That may well still happen, but as long as Celtic are doing everything they can to get Postecoglou the players he wants, there should be no complaints from his end ahead of the new season.
