Celtic face competition in transfer race for Bundesliga star


One area where Celtic could certainly make more reinforcements is their midfielder. There was already a lack of options there to start with, with James McCarthy and Ismaila Soro battling for form under the leadership of Angel Postecoglou. And now David Turnbull has picked up an injury that should keep him out for a long time. So the Hoops might need to strengthen in the middle of the park in January.

Celtic have previously been linked with moves for Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi, both of whom can play in the middle of the park. But they are linked to another player there, who is currently playing in the Bundesliga.

That man is Hannes Wolf from Borussia Mönchengladbach, who has struggled to make an impression lately. According to Transfermarkt statistics, he has made 8 appearances for Borussia Mönchengladbach this season and has not been able to provide a goal or assist.

He had shown enormous potential during his time at RB Salzburg, however, and there is still a lot of interest in his signing. As reported by Bild (via Bulinews), Wolf is wanted by Celtic, Trabzonspor and Rapid Wien.

Celtic face competition in transfer race for Wolf

There is no doubt about Wolf’s talent and potential. He just failed to make it in the Bundesliga.

As a result, a move might be the right step for him at this point and at 22 he has plenty of time on his side to turn his career around.

An attacking midfielder for the most part, Wolf can also play on the flanks and as a result he could be a solid addition to Postecoglou’s squad, although it is clear that the transfer race will be tough for him.
