REPORTS in the Croatian media this afternoon have said Celtic are back in for January transfer target Filip Benkovic.

Celtic were priced out of a move for the 20-year-old at the time with Dinamo Zagreb sticking a £15million price on his head.

It remains to be seen if they were serious about that valuation of the player, but it would suggest they aren’t if Celtic are still sniffing around.

The Croatian site also claims a Celtic representative may already be in Zagreb.

Filip currently occupies the space left by Jozo Simunovic in the Dinamo defence. Is Celtic about have a Croatian centre back pairing? The lad looks like a carbon copy of Jozo.

Other than this article there’s nothing else at the minute to substantiate these claims – it has also been reported that the player is currently injured.

What is definite is Celtic are certainly upping their efforts to bring in a defender before the deadline.
