In Focus: Tosic has experience that can enhance Celtic defence

As reported by Turkish outlet Fotospor, Celtic are interested in signing Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic as the club prepares to do business in the January transfer window.

What’s the story?

Celtic’s defence has been a key weakness in Brendan Rodgers’ side for a while now, especially in European competition where they conceded more goals than any other side in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

The Hoops are likely on the hunt for a centre-back next month and there’s a new name being linked with a move to Glasgow.

Fotosport report that Celtic are interested in Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic, with the Turkish side preparing to introduce Domagoj Vida into the heart of their defence.

The outlet reckons he could be available for a fee of around £2.6m.

Who is he?

A 32-year-old Serbian international with experience across the continent, having played for the likes of Werder Bremen, Red Star Belgrade and now Besiktas, Tosic certainly has a decent playing history behind him that demonstrates he likely has the ability to perform well in the Scottish Premiership.

With plenty of European experience too, including six appearances in this season’s UEFA Champions League, the defender could help out what is a pretty young defensive line at Celtic Park.

The Hoops badly need defensive reinforcements and although he is in the latter stages of his playing career, Tosic would appear to be a player ready to come in and do a vital job in the short-term.
