Football Scotland claim Celtic are still in the hunt for Vinicius Souza and are hopeful of landing a deal for the Brazilian.

The update came from Mark Hendry when he spoke about other potential transfer goings on at Celtic.

Souza has been linked with a move to Celtic for the past month, but nothing has materialised to this point.

As we’ve saw this week, Celtic are really looking to up their transfer game as the bhoys get set to return to Lennoxtown on Monday.

Benjamin Siegrist was signed this we with Alexandro Bernabei on his way to Glasgow to complete a deal with the Scottish champions.

Souza is a defensive midfielder, a position Ange wants to fill this summer. The idea is we have a ball winner in the middle of the park who can then engage our attacking players, allowing Callum McGregor further up the field.

Is Souza to Celtic likely?

There have been rumours of other big clubs interested in the midfielder. It would be a big deal if the Hoops managed to fend off interest and bring in the Brazilian. Right now, there’s no real indication which way it will go, but Celtic are in the hunt.
