  Celtic linked with a move for Borja Iglesias Celtic are being linked with a move for Celta Vigo striker Borja Iglesias, who is currently enjoying a successful loan spell with Real Zaragoza. According to a report from Spanish news outlet El Periodico de Aragon, the Hoops are looking for attacking options and have been impressed by Iglesias’ recent displays. It’s claimed that Celtic have scouted the forward on numerous occasions. The Bhoys have never struggled to find form in front of goal but it appears as though they may be keen to land a new striker in the summer transfer window. With Odsonne Edouard seemingly likely to leave Celtic Park at the end of his loan spell, a replacement may be lined up. Iglesias is in a good run of form with Zaragoza. He has found the net on an impressive 13 occasions and is proving his quality in his homeland. This form appears to have caught Celtic’s attention, too, with the club now being linked with a move for the 25-year-old at the end of the season. Swansea have also been touted as potential suitors for the Celta Vigo outcast.

to see off the challenge of Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion and Aston Villa by making a whooping £5 million bid for Nick Powell this window, but ultimately failed, and report from the above source is now reporting that both Celtic and the Villans have since joined the race to sign the player.

Celtic are one of the teams interested in signing Wigan Athletic midfielder Nick Powell, according to Joseph Chapman of the Birmingham Mail.

Aston Villa tried to sign Powell in January but Financial Fair Play restrictions meant that they couldn’t get a deal done. However, the Villans are set to rekindle their interest in the 23-year-old at the end of the season.

Celtic have reportedly been scouting Powell this season as he’s helped Wigan get into position to earn promotion back to the Championship, and they are expected to make a move for him in the summer.

Steve Bruce will be hoping to have Aston Villa in the Premier League next year, which could be a draw for Powell but if the Villans miss out on promotion, a move to the Scottish Premiership, and the chance to play European football, could appeal to the former Manchester United man.

Swansea join Celtic in the chase for Borja Iglesias

  Swansea join Celtic in the chase for Borja Iglesias Late last week, Celtic were linked with a summer move for Celta Vigo striker Borja Iglesias, who is currently enjoying a successful loan spell with Real Zaragoza. However, they won’t have a clear run at him as Swansea City are also said to be tracking the 25-year-old. According to a report from Spanish news outlet El Periodico de Aragon, the Hoops are looking for attacking options and have been impressed by Iglesias’ recent displays. It’s claimed that Celtic have scouted the forward on numerous occasions. Iglesias is in a good run of form with Zaragoza. He has found the net on an impressive 13 occasions and is proving his quality in his homeland. This form appears to have caught Swansea’s attention, too, with the club now being linked with a move for the Spaniard at the end of the season. With Wilfried Bony struggling once again with injuries, the Swans are looking for reinforcements so if Celtic do want to sign Iglesias, they’ll need to battle the Welsh side for his signature.

Celtic linked with summer move for Kyriakos Papadopoulos .
Celtic are being linked with a summer move for Greek international defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos. The 28-year-old looks like he’ll be leaving Hamburg this summer at the Scottish champions are one of the sides looking at bringing him in. Brendan Rodgers has been a long-time admirer of the Greek defender and wanted to sign him when he was in charge at Liverpool, but the Reds decided to sign Mamadou Sakho instead as there were concerns about Papadopoulos’ knee. However, he’s stayed relatively healthily this season and has played 25 times for Hamburg and therefore, Rodgers could be tempted to bring him to Celtic Park. Papadopoulos, whilst lacking in height, is known for his physical slyer of play and for his leadership, two things that Celtic’s backline has lacked at times this season. If he does leave Hamburg, interest will likely be high but Celtic would certainly have a chance to get him.
