Reported Celtic target Mohanad Jeahze has been labelled better than any left-back in Sweden or in the Swedish national team.

The Hoops have been linked with a potential £2m move for Iraqi talent Jeahze. This comes with the player’s contract heading into its final 12 months in the summer.

It’s the first real transfer report Celtic supporters have read regarding potential summer business. And it appears as though left-back is certainly an area the Hoops are targeting.

And it’s clear that the Hammarby star is certainly well regarded by his team-mates. Darijan Bojanic, who plays alongside Jeahze, has claimed that he’s better than any left back in Sweden as well as those in the national team, which includes Sevilla star Ludwig Augustinsson.

As quoted by the Scottish Sun, Bojanic said: “He’s class. Really class right through – there is no better left-back in all of Sweden. He is better than the left-backs in the national team as well. He is the best.

“It’s how he is with the ball and his ability to run up and down the field all the time. He always makes good decisions. Mohanad’s passing is central to us on the pitch – all of that. He’s class right through.”

It’s clear how highly-rated he truly is in Sweden. The fact he’s a top performer for the club currently sitting top of the Allsvenskan is an impressive trait in its own right.

It’s also promising to hear how confident and positive Jeahze is when it comes to his passing out from the back. That’s something we know Ange needs to have in his Celtic defenders. Especially in the full-back position.

We’ve already spoken about how impressive Jeahze’s crossing range looks too. He clearly has plenty about him going forward, and that’s the kind of left-back Celtic supporters love to see.

The biggest question that hovers over the Iraqi international is whether he’s of the right standard for UCL football. Should Celtic secure the title, that’s the kind of talent we’re aiming for. Jeahze has yet to taste group-stage European football.

But this is no doubt just one of a number of transfer stories that we’re going to be hit with in the coming weeks. The closer we get to the end of the season, the more names will get thrown at us.

It’ll be interesting to see just how busy a summer we’re going to have.
