The Scottish side have flown out to watch him twice this season, but face competition to sign the player as Dynamo Moscow and Real Betis are also interested.
The 19 year-old defender currently plays in his home nation of Poland for top tier side Legia Warszawa, via Transfermarkt. So far he has played 27 games in all competitions, keeping 11 clean sheets whilst also managing to pick up seven assists.
The left-back also made his debut for the Polish U-19 team in September 2019 and has now featured seven times, scoring one goal. This type of signing definitely looks like the club are looking at a player for the future but does raise questions as to what this means for 24 year-old Boli Bolingoli, per Transfermarkt.
Would this be a good signing?
The Belgian full-back just signed in the summer whilst making 28 appearances in all competitions. He had a great start to his debut season, however a knee injury back in October has seen him struggle to get back into the starting eleven since he has returned.
Here is what fans had to say about the news:
Celtic are tracking Legia Warsaw left-back Michael Karbownik.
Scouts have watched him twice this season in the Polish league.
Dynamo Moscow and Real Betis are also interested. pic.twitter.com/yrq8jKPofQ

Another LB, well I suppose we’ve wasted £6m on two duds, so another couple mil won’t hurt too much.

Whenever I see a Spanish club is an option for a player we’re interested in I pretty much resign myself to him going there ☹🍀

It’s one position we need to sort

I’d take him, don’t trust Taylor yet especially in a back 3 and Boli gets injured

Hopefully he’s a first team player and not another project
