Celtic has an impressive array of riches in the forward line and midfield and in Tierney and Ajer we have 2 outstanding young defenders, what the team needs is reliability from another Centre Half and more energy at Right Back.
Starting at Centre Half, Dedryck Boyata put in a brilliant performance against England and the former Man City forward will have been noticed by many Premier League managers and CEOs.
Coming into the last year of his contract he has yet to sign on after starting negotiations late last season.
If a big offer comes in, Celtic will have to match the wages or sell, Of course, if it is a sale you can’t imagine a World Cup player leaving Celtic for less than 5 million pounds.
We saw the story break about interest in Jozo Simunovic to the tune of 6 million euro or around 5 million pounds, these 2 erratic players many Celtic fans declare as bomb scares could net Celtic 10 million pounds plus which would easily buy proven quality at Centre Half and Right Back.
At Right Back the man who seems to have no Parkhead future in Cristian Gamboa should go close to recouping the million that was spent on bringing him to Paradise.
The man in front of him Mikael Lustig is putting in some spirited performances for Sweden, many we wished we had seen during Champions League matches last year.
With only Switzerland in Sweden’s way, Celtic could have a World Cup quarterfinalist on our books whilst actively looking for his replacement!
Celtic are strong across the park but last year we struggled to find a defensive partnership, it wasn’t until we were beaten by Hearts and Ajer came into the team that the clean sheets started coming.
If these players are surplus to requirements, they will draw in millions and give the club the financial capacity to improve the team where it is needed most.
