Celtic’s Mikael Lustig has offer from Malmo on the table

Mikael Lustig’s future at Celtic has been questioned over the last few months and it appears it could be once again.

The right-back’s current deal with the Scottish Premiership side expires in the summer and the club are yet to have made a decision on whether to offer him a new one.

The Sweden international has struggled over the course of the season with his performances being some way off of what many know he is capable of producing and his position in the side has come under threat with the arrival of Jeremy Toljan from Borussia Dortmund on loan this January.

However, it appears he has the option to return to his homeland, with Malmo believed to have tabled an offer.

Fotboll Direkt are claiming the Europa League outfit, who are currently facing Chelsea for a place in the next round of the tournament, have made an offer ‘clearly better’ than one that has been made from AIK.

The Verdict:

Whether Lustig is offered a new deal by Celtic remains to be seen, however, it does not appear he will be short of options if he does become a free agent.

As mentioned, the 32-year-old has struggled with his form this season and Toljan’s arrival will not have helped his cause of remaining as Brendan Rodgers’ first-choice right-back.

With interest from Malmo and AIK rumoured, it appears a move back to Sweden could be on the cards for Lustig.
