Report: Celtic submit £1m bid for Sacha Boey

Celtic have lodged a bid for Rennes right-back Sacha Boey in the region of £1m, according to Glasgow Times.

The Bhoys are in desperate need of a fullback on the right-side of defence. Ange Postecoglou has just Anthony Ralston at right-back with just under a month left until the start of the new season.

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old spent last campaign on loan at Dijon in France. He made 26 appearances in Ligue 1, finishing bottom of the top division.

The publication is claiming that conversations have begun between Rennes and the Glasgow giants. Boey has just a year left on his contract and would be a cost-effective signing.

Boey would be a fantastic addition to Celtic after bid

Boey would be a great addition to Celtic amid reports of a bid for the youngster.

His price and age make him an effective signing for Postecoglou’s men, especially in their current situation.

The Australian currently has just one right-back heading into the new season. Jonjoe Kenny’s loan spell from Everton has expired, and he’s returned to Merseyside.

Meanwhile, Kristoffer Ajer, who also played on the right could also be headed for the exit door.

In the Frenchman, Celtic are targeting a defensive monster. Boey averaged more tackles and interceptions than any other Hoops player.

But, the club will need to help him out in the attacking third, where the young ace only registered one assist. Football has changed in recent years, making fullbacks key parts of most teams.

Desperation has led Celtic to Boey, however, they could be about to secure a bargain if they complete a £1m deal.
