Celtic fans don’t like the idea of selling Jozo Simunovic

Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic is a transfer target for Spanish side Alaves this summer, according to The Scottish Sun.

The paper say that the La Liga outfit could make a £4m move for him in the upcoming transfer window.

The centre-back has made 109 career appearances for the Hoops since joining in 2015 and this season has taken to the pitch 29 times.

He’s become a key part of interim manager Neil Lennon’s team in recent months with injuries to Filip Benkovic and Dedryck Boyata hampering Celtic’s campaign.

Heading into a busy few months of summer qualifiers, letting Simunovic go could be seen as something of a mistake considering only Jack Hendry and Marvin Compper are available to partner Kristoffer Ajer in his absence.

Finding two quality replacements for Benkovic and Boyata will be hard enough for club in the upcoming transfer window without seeking one for Simunovic too.

Celtic supporters certainly don’t appear keen to let him leave so quickly, taking to Twitter this week to share their thoughts on the potential deal…
