Many Celtic fans have been talking about comments from Ko Itakura that emerged on social media.
Should Celtic sign Itakura?
He stated that his loan spell at Groningen allowed him to put himself on the map and he also learned how to communicate in a new language. He also stated that he dreams of playing for a world-famous club so that everyone knows who he is.
What did Celtic fans make of Itakura?
“Has he not just got 1 year left on his contract? Would be nice if we could negotiate an option to buy looks quality and we’d have a Japanese friend for Furuhashi.”
“Ko is coming home.”
“Well if Partick Thistle don’t want him, he can come to Celtic.”
“Come to the Celtic.”
These Celtic fans clearly want Itakura at the club and they’re making their views clear about the Japanese defender.
So they might need a more experienced centre-back option to potentially replace Duffy’s presence. Itakura acquired a lot of first-team experience in the Netherlands. Since he’s currently a Manchester City player and Celtic have had many exchanges with City, this might be a move worth pursuing.
