The party has started for the Hoops and their fans. A 5-0 win over Kilmarnock secured the Premiership title and had the supporters and team celebrating in true Celtic style. Champions again! Of course, Brendan Rodgers' side won the last league game of the season as well, a comeback 3-2 victory against St Mirren at home, before lifting the trophy in front of the Parkhead crowd.

Things are not standing still despite the success though. Rodgers has already indicated that work is well underway on strengthening the squad for next season.

That is even more important with the club now securing a place in the Champions League next season. Inevitably there will be some players leaving the squad in the summer as new signings arrive. 

A few of those were able to join in the title celebrations as part of the squad. That wasn't the case for others who are likely to make an exit soon. Sead Haksabanovic is someone who could be on his way out and Italy looks like a potential destination, after an underwhelming loan spell at Stoke City.

Haksabanovic signed for Celtic in the summer of 2022 from Rubin Kazan. Initially, it looked as if he had something positive to offer, especially as an impact substitute. But that faded after the World Cup break and he didn't exactly take the few opportunities he was given to shine. 

This season, Haksabanovic was sent out on loan to English Championship side Stoke City. That looks like another missed opportunity. Just like Celtic, he started well but faded away as the season progressed.

He could do with a new home for his football. As reported by (via Football Scotland), Verona, Torino and Parma are keen on Haksabanovic. Celtic will be looking for a transfer fee around £2.5 million for the player.

That would be a great deal for the club and could well be a smart move for Haksananovic as well. He does not seem to have much of a future at Celtic anyway.
