Fabrizio Romano’s update on Celtic double deal

Fabrizio Romano expects Celtic’s interest in Gustaf Lagerbielke and Ryan Fraser to advance in the next few days.

News on the Swedish defender has been well sign posted over the last week but firm interest in Fraser will come as a surprise to many fans.

Transfers from the EPL are fairly rare with the Scotland winger under something of a cloud at Newcastle after being left out of all pre-season activities.

Fraser hasn’t played a competitive game since last October with Celtic’s needs fairly immediate with a trip to Ibrox and the Champions League kicking off within the next five weeks.

Romano is the most followed transfer account on Twitter but shared his thoughts with Give Me Sport, earlier tonight they reported:

What did Fabrizio Romano say about Celtic interest in Ryan Fraser and Gustaf Lagerbielke?

On Celtic’s targeted duo, Romano insisted that both deals are expected to ramp up in the next days as all relevant parties remain in dialogue.

However, the transfer guru also claimed that it’ll be interesting to see which Celtic players could be heading out the Parkhead doors as he claims there is interest in some of their players, too.

Speaking exclusively to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “Yeah, it’s a work in progress in that aspect. I expect both deals to advance in the next days as there are conversations ongoing. So the idea is to advance, and we have to see what’s going to happen next there because there is interest also in their players.”

Signing Fraser would come into the ‘in Brendan we trust’ for most Celtic fans.

As recently as November 2019 the Bournemouth winger was being linked with Liverpool but a dip in form coupled with Bournemouth’s relegation and the player’s refusal to extend his contract to deal with the delayed end of the season didn’t do him any favours.

From the moment Eddie Howe took over as Newcastle boss the future looked bleak for Fraser but with two years left on his contract that is as much of a problem to the club as it is to the player.

A direct replacement for Jota is unlikely but as Rodgers redesigns the Celtic squad it might be a case that Fraser fits the bill with Romano expecting talks to progress this week.
