Celtic scout Tomas Kalas ahead of potential swoop

Celtic scout Tomas Kalas ahead of potential swoop

Celtic will be desperate to kick on and secure a third successive treble in the current campaign, having asserted their dominance in the Scottish Premiership in recent times. 

The Hoops are currently in a battle with bitter rivals Rangers for the Scottish Premiership title. Brendan Rodgers’ side may hold a slight edge at this moment in time, but the title race could come down to who makes the better moves in the January transfer window.

Interestingly, it appears as if Rodgers has set his sights on a potential addition, as according to ClubCall (via Read Celtic), Celtic had scouts in attendance at Bristol City’s game against Ipswich Town, with a potential January swoop on the card.

It’s believed that the Hoops had scouts in attendance on Wednesday night to watch Kalas, when Bristol beat Ipswich Town 3-2 at Portman road.

The 25-year old is currently on loan with Bristol City, but the Hoops are reportedly interested in breaking that loan deal ahead of potentially bringing him to Celtic Park.

Importantly, Chelsea are thought to possess the option to recall Kalas in January, and it’s understood that he could be made available for a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge.

THE VERDICT:

Tomas Kalas was rather impressive during his time at Craven Cottage last season as he helped Fulham secure promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs. And, he has managed to ensure consistency during his time at Ashton Gate in the current campaign, so it comes as no surprise that Celtic are interested in him.

The Hoops could lose Dedryck Boyata in the January transfer window, so bringing in a replacement is vital.

Of course, the Belgian would be a huge loss having established himself as one of the best defenders in Scotland, but the Czech Republic international could easily slot right into the heart of the defence, having enjoyed a number of successful loan spells all over Europe.
