Celtic have been told that they’ll need to pay £4.2m in order to land free-scoring HNK Gorica winger Kristijan Lovric, according to the Daily Mail.
The Lowdown: Celtic look to acquire main targets ahead of 2021/22
With their 2021/22 season now underway, new Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou will be keen to quickly formalise his preferred targets in order to provide him with a squad capable of reclaiming the Premiership crown this term.
The Hoops have already invested in the left-wing berth with the signing of Japan international Kyogo Furuhashi, and they have now been quoted with how much they will need to pay if they are to land another player in this position.
Would Lovric be a good signing for Celtic?

The Hoops have launched an enquiry about his services, but are yet to submit an official bid for the the 1.86m (6 foot 1) wide man. Serie A outfit Hellas Verona are also said to be monitoring the 25-year-old’s situation [Daily Mail].
The Verdict: Lovric would be a good fit for Celtic
Capable of scoring and creating regularly, signing Lovric would represent savvy business by the Celtic hierarchy ahead of a crucial season.
He enjoyed a very productive 2020/21 campaign for Gorica, registering 25 goal contributions in 32 fixtures with 18 goals and seven assists [Transfermarkt]. Able to fashion chances from situations of little goalscoring probability, he has gained a reputation as a match-winner due to his distinctive qualities.
The Celts should look to edge ahead in the chase for his signature before more clubs become aware of his potential availability.
