Report: Celtic showing interest in FC Copenhagen defender Peter Ankersen

The Danish international is set to depart his current club this summer.

Celtic are considering a move for FC Copenhagen defender Peter Ankersen, as they set about finding a replacement for Mikael Lustig.

The Scottish Sun is reporting that the Danish right-back is on the radar of Neil Lennon.

The 28-year-old has played 25 times for his country and is set to leave Copenhagen during the summer, alerting Celtic.

A competent right-sided defender, he played in 47 games for the Danish giants last season, scoring once and claiming eight assists.

The Hoops will be desperate to strengthen their squad this summer and the need for a right-back is evident.

 

Lustig signed for Gent earlier this week and that leaves Celtic in desperate need of a right-back to bolster their ranks.

TBR Verdict

Ankersen would be a quality addition to the Celtic ranks.

The uncompromising figure has played 175 games for Copenhagen but will seek pastures new for the 2019/20 campaign.

Ankersen would probably represent an upgrade on the recently departed Lustig, who had occasionally found the going tough last season.

Players don’t earn 25 caps for a nation like Denmark if they can’t play a little bit and the Dane could be seen as a coup if Neil Lennon can secure his signature.

Ankersen contributed eight assists last season highlighting his quality at both ends of the pitch.

In Scottish football, the experienced player would surely excel and this is a deal that Celtic should press ahead with.
