EARLIER today we featured a list of ten potential summer signing for Celtic as selected by the Everything Celtic twitter account @aboutceltic – you can read those ten signing suggestions in the article below…
We asked if you had additional suggestions to add to this list and below Celtic Star reader Paul Foley set out a comprehensive list of potential signing targets for the club this summer. And the guys are Everything Celtic are also promising a further list themselves so after the recruiting mishaps from last summer, Nick Hammond cannot complain about the lack of suggestions and assistance from the support in making this inevitable re-build at Celtic an overwhelming success!
A few player suggestions for the summer re-build at Celtic, from Celtic Star reader Paul Foley, starting with the defence…
Marcus Bettinelli at Fulham on loan at Boro. He is 28 and a solid keeper that would improve our options and be within our means as a bosman.
Lorenzo Montipo from Benevento only 24 but has a good reputation in Serie A so may be a stretch for us. He is also a bosman.
Dominik Greif from Slovan Bratislava, younger at 23 but has good experience including Europa league groups last year likely cost £2mish.
Ryan Nyambe right back from Blackburn Rovers, he is 23 been playing regularly in the Championship this season. Is quick, strong and decent on the ball. Also a bosman.
Jannik Dehm, Holstein Kiel left back from Bundesliga 2 who has good experience and former German youth international. Again a bosman.
Sherel Floranus, Heerenveen 22 year old attacking full back and Dutch U21 international. Again available as a bosman.
Mladen Devetak, Vojvodina 21 year old left back/centre back. Serbian U21 international. He looks a good all round full back capable of defending and getting up and down the left side. He shows “Tierney-esq” determination. Would cost about £1.5-2m.
Miro Muheim, St Gallen, 22 year old Swiss full back former Chelsea youth team player. Had two good seasons since moving to Swiss league. He is a bosman.
Left sided Sinisa Sanicanin, Vojvodina 25 year old centre back, Bosnian international. Is 6’3, has decent pace and is comfortable on the ball.
Anthony Jung, Brondby, 29 year old who used to be more a left back at RB Leipzig but has been playing left side of a back 3 this season. Could be a useful addition on a bosman.
Riechedly Bazoer, Vitesse, 24 year old who can play CB or DCM. Was a big talent coming through a few years back at Ajax then Wolfsburg, lost his way but has had an excellent season. A very good footballer who could replace Ajer’s ball carrying abilities although not the tallest at just over 6ft but his versatility and ability make him a top player. Would cost between £3-4m.
Right sided – Wilker Angel, Akhmat Grozny, 27 year old Venezuelan International CB. He is a big presence and would be a good rotation option for Julien particularly given his injuries this year. Bosman.
Akos Kecskes, FC Lugano, 23 year old Hungarian CB, 6’3 decent pace and comfortable on the ball again could be a good rotation option for Julien. Bosman.
Leo Ostigard, Coventry on loan from Brighton, 21 Norway U21 international. Had a good season and is a bosman more someone that could be a partner for a more experienced partner.
Joseph Okumu, Elfsborg, 23 year old Kenyan international who is a big presence with good potential. Probably cost £2mish. The last Kenyan we bought was decent.
Tomorrow we will look at the midfield, wingers and strikers.
