The Celtic Underground account isn’t claiming tonight the bhoys could be closing in on a deal for Filipinos Benkovic with Kristoffer Ajer going the other way.
The ‘in the know’ account has been accurate enough in the past and has reported the club will get Aaron Hickey back from Hearts over the summer.
On a brighter note it looks like we're signing Hickey from Hearts and we might get Benkovic plus cash for Ajer.

This is a big season for Celtic coming up and the plans in place over the summer will have a profound affect on the outcome.
Celtic fans on the whole would love to see Filip Benkovic back and if we were to get the defender plus a fee it could be a top deal.
Hickey is a left back who would come in and challenge Greg Taylor. We’re not sure about Boli Bolingoli’s future at the club having been dropped since the start of 2020.
It would be interesting to see Benkovic and Jullien in a centre-back pairing but right now, we stress these are rumours.
