Mario Vuskovic is reportedly has been tipped to sign for Celtic this summer, however, there’s no confirmation a deal is edging closer at the moment. Celtic are said to have offered £4.3 million to Hadjuk Split, with the defender set to earn £13k p/w. [SunSport]
Aged 19, Vuskovic will have plenty of time to live up to his potential in his time at Celtic. Despite his age, the Croatian played the majority of league games in the HNL. Featuring 39 times this season, Vuckovic was on the score sheet 3 times. One of these was an inch-perfect free-kick, similar to Virgil Van Dijk.

MSN.com label the defender as no-nonsense. They claim that the 6ft 1in man is pacey, and will fit the new manager’s philosophy where the full-backs are allowed to attack with the two centre-backs left to defend.
It certainly looks like Celtic are going all guns blazing for a high-press attacking playing style with Ko Itakura also being linked with the hoops.
Celtic seem to have full faith in new manager Ange Postecoglou giving him the funds to rebuild the team in his mould this summer – something fans were anxious about.
The future looks bright, Postecoglou has undergone mass rebuilds in the past and has been rewarded for doing so.
