Report: Celtic have ‘concrete interest’ in Finland international Jere Uronen

Celtic are considering a move for Finland international Jere Uronen to fill their vacant left-back slot this summer, according to reports. 

That is according to a report from TuttoMercatoWeb, who claim Celtic are one of a number of teams to have reached out to Belgian side Genk regarding a potential move for the player. 

The report claims that Celtic have the ‘most concrete interest’ in the Finn, but that teams in Italy and Germany are also keeping tabs on the 26-year-old defender. 

 

Celtic recently allowed Boli Bolingoli to join Basaksehir after his recent indiscretions and are believed to be on the hunt for another left-back to challenge Greg Taylor for the first-team role at Parkhead.

Uronen was a crucial member of the Finland team that secured qualification for the European Championships and the former Helsingborgs star already has 40 caps for his nation. 

Uronen has recently found his place in the Genk starting XI come under threat from newcomer Gerardo Arteaga and it seems this could be the perfect summer to make a move for his services. 

As reported by The Sun back in December 2018, Uronen is a former target for both Arsenal and Newcastle United and Celtic would be pulling off quite the coup if they managed to secure his signature. 

There is no mention of a fee, but Celtic will be hoping to get a hold of the experienced defender at a reduced rate to help the Bhoys in their hunt for 10 in a row.
