Celtic puts in double bid for World Cup stars


Celtic is frantically searching the transfer market for reinforcements ahead of the Scottish Premiership kick-off, according to the latest transfer rumours.

The club has been linked with a move for Craig Dawson, who has reportedly handed over a transfer request at recently relegated West Brom. The Mirror have claimed that the Hoops have been planning a move for the 28-year-old. However, if they are to sign the Englishman, they face contention from Premier League clubs with Leicester also indicating interest and both Burnley and West Ham said to have had bids go to the touch.

Meanwhile, Celtic are close to sealing a deal for Australian youngster Daniel Arzani, according to a report from the Herald. The 19-year-old is set for a transfer to Manchester City from Melbourne City and the Hoops are confident he will immediately join them on loan. Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted the club is in pursuit of the Wolrd Cup player but he claimed not to have any further knowledge of the progress of a potential deal.
