In Focus: Srdan Plavsic could be the Roberts replacement Celtic need

As reported by The Daily Mail, Celtic are eyeing up a move for Serbian winger Srdan Plavsic after scouts were impressed when checking out a teammate.

What’s the story?

The Hoops are in need of a replacement for Patrick Roberts when he returns to parent club Manchester City this summer and they have come across their man.

The Mail reckon Celtic scout David Moss was on a trip to check on the progress of Red Star Belgrade goalkeeper Filip Manojlovic, but left impressed by the right-sided attacking midfielder in matches against FK Cukaricki and Partizan.

The paper also say Brendan Rodgers is hoping to get his summer business done before their UEFA Champions League qualifiers start in July.

Is Plavsic the answer he needs to replace Roberts?

Ready for Celtic?

The 21 year old attacker has made 30 appearances for Red Star Belgrade this season, scoring 8 goals in the process. He’s been a vital part of their bid to win the Serbian top-flight, also helping propel them into the national cup final at the end of May.

An U21 internationalist for Serbia, he’s also won caps with the senior side, appearing in friendlies against Qatar and the USA in October and January.

It’s clear he has a bright future and if the reported deal can be done, Celtic would be a fantastic place for him to realise his potential.
