    Like the look of this..

    Rapid
    Attacking
    Can actually beat a man
    Can pick a man out
    24
    Benfica graduate
    Played for almost every young Portuguese age group
    Top flight experience for 2/3 year's
    European experience
    Looks to be improving more and more
    Most importantly, the end of Ralston

    We needed an injection of pace in this team and we've got it in 4 position's so far. He'll do well in our attacking system..

    Celtic are reportedly on the verge of signing Royal Antwerp right-back Aurelio Buta in a £3m transfer.

    Walfoot journalist Florian Holsbeek expects a deal to be completed in the coming hours as Ange Postecoglou nears a solution to one of his key defensive issues.


    Anthony Ralston will likely start Wednesday's Champions Leagues qualifier with Midtjylland despite being a peripheral figure for much of his Parkhead career.

    Buta joined Antwerp initially on loan from Benfica back in 2017 before making the move a permanent one in 2018.


    He has become an ever-present in recent seasons and played against Rangers in last season's last 32 Europa League clash with Steven Gerrard's side.



    The imminent arrival of Buta follows on from the signings of Kyogo Furuhashi, Carl Starfelt and Liel Abada as Postecoglou puts his own stamp on his squad.



    Celtic have been linked with a clutch of right-backs including Sheffield United's George Baldock and Derby County's Nathan Byrne.


    The Parkhead side loaned Jonjoe Kenny but have been looking for a long-term solution since Jeremie Frimpong joined Leverkusen in an £11m deal.

    I just checked a couple of the bigger ones or even Antwerp homepage and nothing. So strange indeed. But hoping it goes through. Cause it does sound very concrete.
    I dont know about social media, as i dont have twitter anymore. But the rags are not writing anything

    Being widely reported now. Video footage looks good. Comfortable on the ball and good crosses into dangerous areas.

    I'd like to see us add a striker that is comfortable in the air at some point this window..

    Just watching a few video's of Buta whipping them in. The way Abada was last week. Turnbull etc..

    It would be a very productive option to have..

    Him in and Couto on loan pls.

    We need 2 and I'm no even being greedy. Gudmondson at LB, Sandler and Davies in the middle, Berg and Mooy in the middle, lovric and 2 strikers and we will win the champions league.

    Easy.:ange2:

    Am I right in saying he’d be the first Portuguese at Celtic since Cadete?

    Won’t lie, wanted Baldock before him but hopefully he does well here and fixes our RB problem, him plus Couto would be ideal

    Although it’s still only being reported off that one source, every other article is just quoting that original post

    And perhaps the first Angola-born players for Celtic.
