Celtic would commit a mistake if they fail to sign this versatile 28-year-old dynamo to solve midfield woes

Celtic FC Opinion – Hoops in for Andrea Bertolacci – Good Move?

According to a report in Football Scotland, Scottish champions Celtic are linked with a move for former AC Milan midfielder Andrea Bertolacci during this transfer window.

The 28-year-old, who left the Italian side this summer after his contract expired, is close to moving to Parkhead and playing for Neil Lennon in Scotland. (h/t Football Scotland)

The midfielder signed for Milan from Genoa in 2015 and was considered one of the hottest properties in Italian football back then (h/t Football Scotland). However, things couldn’t materialise as well as he would have hoped for at the San Siro.

In spite of that, it can be said that Bertolacci is a quality player who can make a difference in any team. Here’s why Celtic would be right to add him to their squad ahead of next season:

Hoops could enhance the quality of attacking midfield

Andrea Bertolacci is a versatile midfield player, who can play in a number of positions across the central area of the field. However, his preferred position is as an attacking midfielder, from where he likes to create goal-scoring chances.

In terms of his attributes, the Italian international possesses a good turn of pace on the ball and can dribble past defenders. He is physically strong on/off the ball, has a good eye for key passes and can help the team without possession as well.

It has to be said that despite a bad spell at AC Milan, Bertolacci’s performances and qualities shown in his previous club, which led him to a spot in the Italian senior team, is good enough to make a positive difference in any team.

For that reason, Celtic are right in pursuing a possible deal to sign him ahead of next season. Their attacking midfield could improve with the addition of this Italian.
