Mohanad Jeahze is a player who has been heavily linked with Celtic over the course of the past few weeks. Left-back has been viewed as a weakness in this team ever since Kieran Tierney left in the summer of 2019, to join Arsenal in a Scottish record deal. The Hoops have tried to replace him with several players over the years but it has just never quite worked out.
This season, Greg Taylor has shown a lot of improvement playing under the management of Ange Postecoglou. But, it is pretty clear that Celtic could still do with more left-backs in the summer, with Liam Scales struggling to make his mark and Boli Bolingoli expected to leave soon.
Someone like Jeahze could prove to be a great signing for Celtic and a very good fit in Postecoglou’s style of football as well. But despite rumours suggesting that a move was on the verge of being agreed, that does not look like the case.
“I am here in Hammarby and I have a contract with the club over the next season as well. I do not know where the rumors come from but it is clear that Celtic is a big club, but it is not something I focus on right now.
“Quite honestly, I have told those I work with that I do not want to know anything about a club being interested until an agreement is written and we are not there now.”
Jeahze makes Celtic transfer claim after rumours suggested that he was closing in on a Parkhead move
Jeahze currently plays for Hammarby, who have been one of the top teams in the Allsvenskan this season. They are sitting two points behind first placed AIK but have a game in hand.
One of the biggest reasons behind their good form has been Jeahze, who has been one of the standout performers in the Swedish top flight and is viewed by many as the top left-back in the Allsvenskan right now. He is brilliant going forward and good defensively as well.
Thus, it is not hard to see why Celtic might potentially be interested in signing him. He has all the attributes required to be a success at Parkhead. But at the moment, a move does not seem as close as first thought.
