Celtic can send fans into dreamland by getting the better of Old Firm rivals Rangers tomorrow in the Scottish Premiership, as they’d secure the bragging rights and would be one step closer towards retaining their title.
The Hoops have gone about their business brilliantly since Brendan Rodgers ditched Parkhead for the bright lights of the English Premier League, as they remain on course to secure yet another treble this season.
Although, one thing that has been on the minds of supporters in recent times at Parkhead has been the future of Dedryck Boyata, as his contract is set to expire in the summer transfer window.
Of course, the central defender has established himself as a star in Glasgow after his fantastic performances at the World Cup with Belgium last summer. But, his time in Scotland appears to be coming to an end with a summer transfer window exit looking inevitable at this point.
But, Rangers may just already have their eyes on a potential replacement for the 28-year-old, as according to Nacion Deportes (via HITC), Celtic are interested in signing Edson Alvarez. The Mexico international is also attracting interest from Inter Milan, while a move to PSV or Ajax is also a possibility.
Alvarez, who is valued at £6.75 million (by Transfermarkt), is only 21-years-old but he’s already managed to make 22 appearances on the international stage with Mexico, so it’s clear to see just how highly-rated he is. The youngster is deceivingly quick, he’s strong in the tackle and he looks to play out from the back, so he could fit into Celtic’s style perfectly.
And, Peter Lawwell would make a big statement by securing the services of the central defender as Italian giants Inter Milan are interested and the likes of Ajax and PSV Eindhoven are a possibility.
Celtic fans, do you think that Alvarez could be the man to replace Boyata this summer? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
