A whole host of Celtic fans are very excited on Twitter to see that they’re seemingly closing in on a deal for Riley McGree.
The Australia international has been linked with a move to Celtic with Ange Postecoglou knowing the player from his time managing the national side and in the A-League where McGree previously played his football before moving to the MLS.
And now, The Daily Mail have now reported that McGree is edging closer to a move.
Will Celtic win the league?
McGree would arrive at Celtic to provide added competition to an already well stacked central midfield department but as it reaches the business end of the season and Europa Conference League kicks into force once more, having more bodies would not be a bad thing for Postecoglou.
A lot of Celtic fans on Twitter would love to see McGree join the club.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“Hopefully @CelticFC get this man over line”
“Love it when a transfer come outta the blue…..with all the midfielders coming in the ones here already will have to up their game!”
“Another midfielder though. Good news is Ange knows him. Seems the days of Ivorian 21 Yr old are done”
“Be a good option to give calmac or Turnbull a rest or even now with Turnbull injured, adds depth anyway and read good things about him”
“The Ange effect”
“Hope this goes through, would like us to sign from Europe to so we don’t lose half the squad for the old firm”
The midfielder would arrive with experience of at least the English game having spent some time out on loan at Birmingham City this season where he netted twice and registered two assists in 13 league matches.
