Sevilla join the race for Dedryck Boyata

Celtic will be desperate to pip Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title after securing the treble in the last campaign, but this could all depend on whether they hold onto some of their star players.

The Hoops started their Scottish Premiership campaign off with a win against Livingstone last weekend, but they couldn’t carry their momentum through to today’s game as they lost 1-0 away at Hearts. And, to make matters worse, it appears as if one of Brendan Rodgers’ star men is attracting interest, as according to The Daily Record, Dedryck Boyata is wanted by Sevilla.

Spanish side Sevilla have reportedly joined the race for Celtic’s Dedryck Boyata.

The La Liga outfit are now amongst the list of foreign clubs ready to try and test the resolve of Parkhead chiefs before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

And, Rodgers conceded this week that the Belgian defender could still go to a foreign club if he finds a suitable replacement as the centre-back has entered the final year of his contract and has yet to commit to a new deal.

Worryingly, it’s understood that the Belgian is also on Spanish side Celta Vigo’s radar having starred at the World Cup.

THE VERDICT: 

Celtic will be desperate to hold onto their star man this summer as he continues to attract interest from clubs all over Europe. Indeed, the Hoops will have to rely on a miracle as the Belgian seems to be heading towards the exits, with Brendan Rodgers open to selling if he finds a suitable replacement.

The Scottish club will want to cash in on the defender while they can as they face losing him on a free in the next 12 months if they don’t cash in on him now.
