Celtic have no interest in reported ‘target’ according to his agent

Whilst there is no football being played, the rumour mill is in full flow around potential signings for the new season – whenever that may be.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Celtic were considering a move for another left-back, Legia Warsaw’s Michal Karbownik. Whilst the deal was unlikely from the start from a Celtic point of view, considering Boli Bolingoli, Greg Taylor and Jonny Hayes  were vying for the jersey. The player’s agent, Mariusz Piekarski, spoke about the interest that is being held in the young full back; however, announced that Celtic were not interested in signing him.

Speaking to Meczyki.pl Piekarski was questioned about potential interest from Celtic but the agent denied this saying that Karbownik will go to one of Europe’s top five leagues should he depart Legia Warsaw.

“This is not the case. We focus only on the west and south. Celtic? I think there is no topic either. There is interest, but we have other very interesting options to consider.

“Michał will probably go to one of the five best leagues in Europe.”

The move did not make sense when it was first reported owing to Celtic signing two left backs to replace Kieran Tierney last summer – Boli Bolingoli and Greg Taylor. Furthermore, Celtic have deployed Jonny Hayes at left back at times so a contract extension for Hayes would make more sense than signing another player due to his versatility.

As a result of Coronavirus, it is widely unknown as to when football will return and how much money will be invested in the playing side when the non-playing side may be so negatively effected.

Regardless of this, Celtic’s Head of Recruitment Gary Penrice confirmed that the club were actively watching 240 players with a view to next season is encouraging that the club are continuing to look to strengthen. Whilst Celtic already know the merits of targets like Fraser Forster and Paddy Roberts, Penrice will be scouting the global transfer market for potential signings with a view to bringing them to Glasgow in the future.
