Many Celtic fans have been discussing the club’s links with a move for Mario Vuskovic.
Journalist Gianluigi Longari recently tweeted about Celtic’s interest in signing Vuskovic, claiming that the Hoops are in talks to sign the player from Hajduk Split this summer. He also said that the Parkhead-based club is ready to offer a fee of £5 million to sign the player.
Would Vuskovic be a great replacement for Ajer?
This comes after it was reported that Celtic have watched the player several times this season and Serie A side Torino are also interested in him. Hajduk have also reportedly decided to sell the 19-year-old centre-back this summer.
The latest update drew the attention of multiple Celtic supporters, who made their opinions clear regarding the Croatian youngster.
What did Celtic fans make of this Vuskovic news?
“If true this is huge news on how the board are going to back the manager.”
At only 19, Vuskovic is already a regular for his club as he made 33 appearances in all competitions last season and even played in Europe. He also showed the versatility to play at right-back.
It suggests that he could be a readymade option for the Hoops, especially now that Kristoffer Ajer is reportedly in talks to leave the club. Vuskovic is young and offers experience for first-team football and on top of that, he won’t be an expensive signing, either – so this could be a very good move for Celtic.
