CELTIC were linked for a move for Lech Poznan’s Robert Gumny back in January according to RecordSport, when Brendan Rodgers and Lee Congerton were looking for a permanent solution to Celtic’s right back issue.
Six months later and a Jeremy Toljan loan, the Celts are still no further forward with getting the position filled. Neil Lennon openly admitted the club are working hard behind the scenes to solve their right back issue but it’s proving difficult.
This is why Celtic should look to revive the interest they have in Gumny this summer and try to land the talented young right back. The versatile defender looks set for a full Poland cap shortly after representing his country at all levels from under 17 onwards.
In his very short career to date, Gumny has made 99 top flight appearances and also has Europa League experience. Gumny came through the Polish club’s academy and his market value is around €5m according to TransferMarkt.
If Celtic are struggling for targets, Gumny would be a fantastic addition to the Celtic squad and he fits into Celtic’s transfer strategy where they can develop the lad further and sell him on for a profit when the time is right.
