Celtic should pull out the stops to pip Milan to Timothy Castagne

The Hoops were linked with the highly-rated Belgian during the January transfer window.

Celtic look set to land another Scottish Premiership title this season after they went eight points clear of Rangers on Sunday.

The Hoops beat Kilmarnock 1-0 to edge closer towards triumph.

Last night saw the Hoops’ European hopes extinguish for another campaign after an aggregate defeat to Valencia.

The summer transfer window will be crucial for Celtic, who must add players capable of improvement in European football.

One man who is fancied by the Hoops is Atalanta man Timothy Castagne, according to Inside Futbol.

It would appear Celtic will have competition for the Belgian international, however.

 

According to Tuttosport, Italian giants Milan have now shown an interest in landing the versatile performer.

According to MSN, Celtic were set to drop their interest in Castagne but that is the last thing they should do.

The 23-year-old has played 21 games in all competitions this season and is capable has featured on both the left and right wing.

He has also played at right-back and that is perhaps the most interesting aspect for the Hoops.

Mikael Lustig has been Celtic’s regular right-back this season but at 32-years-old, he won’t be around forever.

Celtic could do with a long-term replacement pretty soon and the Belgian ticks lots of boxes for the Hoops.

In the two years that Castagne has been at Atalanta, he has improved as a footballer and his arrival would represent a coup for Rodgers.

Signing a future star in world football could be just the man Celtic need to make more of an impression in Europe next season.

His arrival would be timely with Lustig’s future at Celtic Park uncertain.
