Celtic reportedly see Birger Meling as the “ideal” replacement for Kieran Tierney, but is he the right man to succeed KT?

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, and would he be the right man?



Will Celtic sign Meling before the deadline?



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.

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.

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.

The 24-year-old certainly appears to possess the qualities needed to replace KT, with Meling’s defensive ability crucially also as strong as his ability to be an attacking threat.
