A lot of Celtic fans have flocked to Twitter to voice their thoughts at the latest transfer claim to emerge regarding Ange Postecoglou’s side.
According to Belgian outlet Walfoot, Royal Antwerp will announce the departure of Aurelio Buta today (Tuesday) as he heads to Celtic.
Would Buta be a good signing?
It is reported the potential deal will involve a fee in the region of £3m for the right-back.
Buta joined the Belgian side permanently in 2018 from Benfica’s B team for an undisclosed fee following his season out on loan with Antwerp (via Transfermarkt).
Celtic fans flocked to the tweet from Everything Celtic who relayed the claims coming out of Belgium as they voiced their delight.
What exactly did these Celtic fans have to say?
“RIGHT BACK. SCENES”
“We have a right back eventually”
“Finally a RB ? Hope it happens .”
“Great news, can he play in goals too?”
Buta featured prominently for Antwerp over the course of the 2020/21 campaign as he racked up 19 appearances in Jupiler Pro League and eight appearances in the Europa League (via Transfermarkt).
Going by the reaction of these Celtic fans, it would appear they view Buta as a great option to come in and resolve their situation at right-back following Jonjoe Kenny’s return to Everton.
