Celtic: Hoops linked with swoop for Kenneth Paal

Celtic: Hoops linked with swoop for Kenneth Paal - Celtic

Celtic are interested in a swoop for PEC Zwolle left-back Kenneth Paal as their search for defensive reinforcements continues, according to The Scottish Sun.

The Lowdown: Celtic look forward to new season

Looking towards the forthcoming campaign, newly-appointed Celts manager Ange Postecoglou will be desperate to acquire the right kind of signings who would be capable of mounting a Premiership title bid in 2021/22.

Already busy in the transfer window, the Hoops have tied up deals for former Sheffield Wednesday pair Liam Shaw and Osaze Urhoghide.

Stepping up their recruitment drive ahead of the new season, Celtic could well be set for another addition to the ranks following recent reports.

The Latest: Celtic keen on Paal

The Scottish giants are said to be looking at 24-year-old Paal as a potential incoming this summer, although Barnsley, AZ Alkmaar, Bordeaux and St Etienne are all rumoured to also be monitoring his situation [The Scottish Sun].

Speaking about interest from Celtic in his services, the 5 foot 9 ace stated: “It’s such a big club with such a history, that’s always nice to hear. That just shows that you’re doing a good job.” [The Scottish Sun].

The Verdict: Paal would be an ideal Celtic signing

The Arnhem-born defender could be a solid addition to the Parkhead fold should any swoop materialise.

Possessing commendable ball-striking technique, he would be an offensive asset for Postecoglou when overlapping on the left-hand side. In 2020/21, the Dutchman made 28 appearances for his current employers, notching one assist [Transfermarkt].

He is capable of keeping his focus defensively, averaging 2.3 clearances per game across the last year [WhoScored].

He is also a consistent performer, which should bode well within the pressures of the goldfish bowl that is football in Glasgow. Across the 2020/21 season, he managed a steady match rating of 7.07 out of 10 from WhoScored, which should offer an encouraging boost to Hoops supporters.

As pre-season preparations get into full swing, Celtic should look to swiftly tie up a deal to bring Paal to Parkhead.
