Celtic could pull off transfer masterstroke with £1.3 million move

With Celtic ending their long drawn search for a new manager with the appointment of Ange Postecoglou, in many ways, the hard work now starts for the Hoops as they aim to return to the top of Scottish football once again after losing the Premiership title to the Rangers by a gap of 25 points last time around.

A number of players are expected to depart the club over the summer, including first-team stars like Odsonne Edouard and Kristoffer Ajer, who only have a year left on their current deals. The loan spells of the likes of Mohamed Elyounoussi, Shane Duffy, Diego Laxalt and Jonjoe Kenny have also come to an end, while Scott Brown has left to take a player-coach role with Aberdeen.

As a result, it is clear that the squad needs a rebuild and the club must sign a number of players over the course of the next few months. One man that the Hoops should have their eyes on is Patrick Berg.

As reported by VG (via HITC), teams in Scotland and Netherlands are interested in the midfielder. And one would hope that Celtic are one of them.

Berg could be a brilliant signing for Celtic

Berg currently plays for Norwegian side, Bodo/Glimt, and has already represented the Norway national team on four occasions till now.

According to stats from Transfermarkt, the defensive midfielder has made 9 appearances for Bodo/Glimt this season, scoring and assisting twice each.

The 23-year-old has been very impressive in recent times and has managed to catch the eye of several clubs. And with his contract set to run out at the end of 2022, a move this summer might not be out of question although Bodo/Glimt might very well want to keep him at the club.

If a move was to happen though, he could be available for a transfer fee of around £1.3 million, which would be an absolute bargain for a player of his quality and potential.
