Celtic should make move for midfielder dubbed ‘Polish Pogba’

Celtic are always on the lookout for great players who have not been discovered yet. Sometimes these moves work out and sometimes they don’t. But they are always worth the try.

One player who should be on their radar in the upcoming summer transfer window is Kacper Kozlowski. The 17-year-old currently plays for Polish side Pogon Szczecin, who are currently sitting at third in the Ekstraklasa, the Polish first division.

Despite being just 17 years of age, it is safe to say that Kozlowski is already starting to make his mark in senior football. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has made 19 appearances this season, scoring one goal and providing 3 assists.

So impressive have been his displays that he has already made his debut for the Poland national team and has been dubbed as the ‘Polish Pogba’.

Celtic should consider making a move for Kozlowski

It looks like Kozlowski has tremendous potential and could turn out to be a special player in the future. As reported by Goal, he is already on Manchester United’s radar. The likes of Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen have been linked with him in the past as well along with many other top clubs.

It is clear to see that he is very highly rated in Poland and is considered as one of their brightest prospects right now.

It is believed that his contract is set to run out in the summer of 2022 though and in that case, this summer could prove to be when he ends up leaving Pogon Szczecin. According to Transfermarkt, his current transfer value is £1.35 million and anything near that could be a bargain for a player of his potential.

Can Celtic pull it off? It certainly won’t be easy considering the fact that Kozlowski has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe. But a move to Parkhead could make sense for him as he would have a pretty good chance of being a first-team regular for the Hoops if he proves himself to be good enough to do so. And if he eventually wants a move to one of the biggest clubs in the world, a successful spell at Celtic would only only better his chances.
