Celtic have been linked with a move for Kristijan Lovric.

Interest in the 23-year-old winger has been picked up by the @timomouse Twitter account which specialises in Croatian, Serbian and Slovenian football.

Lovric scored in Gorica’s 2-1 cup win over Hadjuk Split on Wednesday. The 23-year-old is in his second season with  Gorica, scoring six times in 11 appearances this term with his contract running until June 2022 which would ensure his club a full market value transfer fee.

With Mo Elyounoussi, Scott Sinclair and Jonny Hayes out of contract at the end of this season the left-wing position is clearly one that Celtic will look to strengthen with none of that trio likely to be offered a new deal for varying reasons.

The scouting/recruitment process is a lengthy business covering video analysis, live scouting visits and agent discussions before decisions are made.

Should Celtic be in the market for Kristijan Lovric or another left-winger?

Yes, good to see forward planning

No, we must pull out the stops for Elyounoussi

Nicky Hammond will have a key role to play but at the age of 23 and playing in an eastern European league Lovric does fit the well established profile of a potential Celtic signing.
