Celtic join Marseille in the race to sign a player nominated for the 2021 Best Defender award

Corresponding foot MercatoCeltic are now interested in bringing Ahmed Touba into the Scottish Premiership.

What’s the matter?

Now that Ange Postecoglou has secured Cameron Carter-Vickers’ signing on a permanent basis, it seems Ange Postecoglou is now set to sign another centre-back.

foot Mercato believe Celtic have been scrutinizing Touba’s profile in recent weeks, as have a number of European sides.

The French news outlet add that Marseille, Sevilla, Olympiakos, Angers, Benfica, Real Betis, AEK Athens and Bayer Leverkusen are all interested in the 24-year-old.

As a result, Celtic have their hands full if they want to win the race for Touba’s signature.

Interestingly, the Algerian international’s contract expires in June 2023, so it could be this summer RKC Waalwijk‘s last chance to get paid for her No. 59 – foot Mercato mention nothing about an extension.

However, they describe Touba as a quick defender who is also solid in physical tackles.

Ahmed Touba could shine at Celtic

From the sound of it, Touba could be a good addition to Postecoglou at Celtic Park.

The Algerian is still quite young at 24 so his arrival would be a long-term investment for the Bhoys, whilst also having good retail value.

Impressively, Touba was also nominated for the Defender of the Year Honored in 2021, alongside Ajax duo Daley Blind and Lisandro Martinez and Marco Senesi and Jacob Rasmussen.

With the success of Jota, Kyogo Furuhashi, Reo Hatate and more Postecoglou signings, we have confidence in the 56-year-old. If Touba arrives we wouldn’t be surprised to see him shine in Glasgow.

Above all, Celtic must find a way to fend off the multitude of European giants also vying for Touba’s signing.

Keep an eye on this situation because anything could happen this summer.
