With the season coming to a close in the next few weeks, Celtic transfer links in the media have started to ramp up over the last few days.

Reports have suggested that the Hoops are interested in bringing Hammarby left-back Mohanad Jeahze to the club.

It has also been suggested that the Iraq internationalist would be open to the move, as Ange Postecoglou looks to move for a defender in the transfer window quickly.

L’Equipe in France have also reported a Celtic bid for Caen striker Alexandre Mendy – who has netted 16 goals this season.

Due to the sheer number of players he needed to bring to the club, the Celtic manager won’t want to have a summer transfer window similar to the one we saw last year.

So, the Celtic boss and those working behind the scenes appear to have plans underway to ensure this summer’s transfer business is done as swiftly as possible.

A left-back seems to be on the high list of priorities for this Celtic squad after the links to Jeahze in recent days, showing Ange Postecoglou’s intent to add more options to his team.

Postecoglou adding more depth to his squad sends another exciting message to Celtic support

Despite the number of players brought to the club in the summer of 2021, it is fair to say a majority of those signings have been a success and contributed to the side this season.

So, it bodes well for this Celtic squad that Postecoglou is looking to add more depth and quality ahead of next season.

It also sends out an exciting message to the fans that this team can be taken to another level by adding more strength and depth across the pitch.

We have seen that displayed at points this season, with the depth that Postecoglou is able to choose from in the midfield area – particularly in the second half of the campaign.

Postecoglou will be pushing players to a new level if even more quality options are added to his squad.

The Celtic manager will also be hoping this can impact his side’s chances in European competition after several first-team stars struggled with injury issues throughout this season’s Europa League campaign.

Exciting times ahead.
