'Keep an eye on Juranovic' - Transfer specialist in €15m Celtic star claim with Leicester City among 'many' clubs interested

Celtic star Josip Juranovic is a summer transfer target for Leicester City with many clubs monitoring the player’s progress.

The Croatian moved to Parkhead in August for a fee of £2.5million from Polish side Legia Warsaw.

Juranovic, who has been capped 15 times by his national side, has been a revelation, capable of playing at right-back or left-back.

According to respected transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, his form has caught the eye of Leicester City amongst other clubs around Europe.

"This is the right-back playing for Celtic,” he told The Here We Go Podcast. “His price will be around €10m, €12m, €15million so we will see the final price tag.

"But this boy is doing great with Celtic. He’s performing at the top level, one of the most interesting right-backs on the market and I have a feeling that in the summer, he will have a chance to move.

"I’m told many clubs are exploring this opportunity. Keep an eye on Juranovic”

The defender has played mostly at left-back so far due to Celtic's issues at left-back prior to Greg Taylor’s return from injury but has taken over from Anthony Ralston as the starting right-back.

After starring in the 3-0 win over Rangers he was rotated at the weekend, coming off the bench in the 4-0 win over Motherwell.

He will be expected to start against Aberdeen in tonight’s Premiership encounter.
