JOZO SIMUNOVIC has been linked with a £10million move to Spartak Moscow.
According to reports from Russia, the struggling Champions League outfit have targeted the Croatian star to strengthen their backline after sliding into 10th place.
Brendan Rodgers is in no rush to sell the central defender who almost joined Serie A side Torino last summer.
Simunovic, though, has an obvious problem with performing on artifical surfaces and the Hoops boss left him out of the team for the last two games against Kilmarnock and Astana for that reason.
Spartak, of course, play on a plastic pitch!
Earlier this week, Rodgers dismissed reports of an interest in the 23-year-old defender who has switched his international allegiance to Bosnia.
Ex-gaffer Ronny Deila signed Simunovic from Dinamo Zagreb two years ago for £2.5million with add-ons.
Burnley are also interested in Simunovic and earlier this week a rumor spread, apparently started in Astana, that the player was keen on a move to the Premier League strugglers.
Meanwhile FC Copenhagen, knocked out of the European elite tournament by Celtic’s old foes Qarabag during the week, are still interested in Danish international Erik Sviatchenko.
And well done to Rosenborg who last night eliminated Celtic’s old enemy and last season’s Europa League Finalists Ajax from that competition.
It puts Celtic’s success over the Norwegian Champions in a slightly different light this morning.
