A score of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to back the potential signing of Norway international Patrick Berg, with the midfielder available on a pre-contract agreement in January.
The Bodo/Glimt enforcer, who plays in his native country, was the subject of analysis from popular Celtic analytics page @BhoysAnalytics, who awarded the target an ‘A’ in terms of transfer suitability – their highest possible rating.
What have some Celtic fans been saying in response?
“We need to sign him man”
“Will be a bit of interest from quite a few club, I would imagine now.”
”We could get the perfect player for free or go and spend 3-5 million on a 20 year Brazilian who will probably be another kouassi, you just know what the board will do”
“Gonna have to pay more than £2m”
“Need Patrick Berg at Celtic, he’s definitely what we need sitting deepest in midfield. Would allow McGregor to play more advanced.”
“ Been saying it for almost a year now. Patrick Berg & Fredrik Björkan need to be seriously targeted by us.”
“Bring him home”
With the Norwegian topflight campaign ending in January and the player out of contract in the following window, striking a deal in the next window could be an ideal move for all parties.
Berg would add intensity and quality to Celtic’s deep-lying midfielder pool, and many fans clearly are enthused by the prospect of Berg signing on.
