Celtic eyes child prodigy as Angel plans January deals – report

Celtic consider move for wonderkid Oscar Gloukh as manager Ange Postecoglou is already tracing his January activity. The Aussie has assumed a pivotal role as Celtic’s figurehead by taking control of the club’s transfer business and enshrining his authority on the pitch.

According to Daily recording, the young Israeli is one of the brightest talents in European football right now and the club are reportedly keen to land a mouth-watering £8million for him. Interest from a number of clubs has been reported of late.

Celtic have often dealt with agent Dudu Dahan but given the numbers at stake it can be a bit more complex for Celtic. Liel Abada’s example will be one that a number of young Israelis will look to as an example of the path to success. Abada plays exciting football, he gets noticed and he plays Champions League football.

It will be interesting to see if this interest manifests itself. Celtic are considering succession, moving forward and not standing still. The high-energy performances that Ange has the team producing will attract interest from a number of clubs in the so-called Top Five Leagues and players will naturally look to move on after a spell. Although given what Ange is building, you wouldn’t be surprised if players wanted to stick around.
