Celtic reportedly see Birger Meling as the “ideal” replacement for Kieran Tierney, so are the Hoops close to putting an offer in for the right-back?

According to Sport Witness, Croatian news outlet Index.hr have reported that Celtic view Meling as the perfect KT replacement following his Arsenal move, and that the Hoops’ interest in the Norwegian is “growing louder.” So does that mean a deal for the 24-year-old is close?



The news regarding a move for Meling has certainly gained pace in the last week or so, following initial reports that Celtic were interested by Norwegian pundit Jesper Mathisen.



Furthermore, head coach Eirik Horeland has also publicly stated that the left-back is likely to leave the club in the future.

Sport Witness’ report also claims that Meling may be left out of Rosenborg’s Champions League play-off squad to face Dinamo Zagreb next week, amid interest from Celtic.

A move for Meling then certainly appears to be growing closer, as Index.hr suggest, and landing the highly rated 24-year-old would definitely go some way to restoring positive atmosphere at the club.

Will Celtic sign Meling before the deadline?
