Steve Howey reckons former Premier League midfielder Aaron Mooy would be interested in reuniting with Ange Postecoglou at Celtic.
Mooy left Brighton & Hove Albion after Shanghai Port struck a £7.5million deal last year.
He has gone on to make 22 appearances for the Chinese Super League outfit, scoring two goals and registering three assists in the process.
Should Celtic sign Aaron Mooy?
The central midfielder, 30, previously made 120 appearances for Huddersfield Town and played a key role as the Terriers won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history in 2017.
Former top-flight defender Howey feels Mooy would be keen to turn his back on China in favour of heading to Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.
Mooy, who has won 42 Australia caps, played under new Celtic boss Postecoglou during his time in charge of the Aussie national side.
Postecoglou endured a difficult start to his reign at Parkhead after the Bhoys were knocked out of the Champions League in the second qualifying round and lost their Scottish Premiership opener against Hearts.
Howey thinks Postecoglou could turn to a familiar face to bolster his Celtic options and Mooy would be attracted to a move to Scotland.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “Going to Celtic could be a good move for him because there are a few more clubs doing well in Scotland now.
“Clubs are getting better and better, so it could be a good move for him.”
