Reported Celtic transfer target Robert Gumny is not letting himself get distracted by speculation linking him with a move away from Lech Poznan this summer.
Polish outlet Gazeta Wyborcza reported in March that the Hoops were keen on making a move for the right-back ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Gumny is purely focused on his Polish club right now though, telling Sportowe Fakty last week: “For now, I do not think about a transfer. I am focusing on the matches that still have to be played. I have to get the best out of it. If my form is weak, nobody will buy me.”
Clearly the player is keen on an exit from Poland and his ambition to play elsewhere this summer could prove to be perfect timing for Celtic who face a real right flank problem come the end of the season.
Mikael Lustig’s contract is up and there’s no decision yet on whether he will win a new deal, with Jeremy Toljan also expected to return to parent club Borussia Dortmund.
With Cristian Gamboa’s contract also up, the Hoops could have no natural right-backs in the first-team squad heading into vitally important European qualifiers.
Rated at £3.6m by Transfermarkt, 20-year-old Gumny is a prospect with plenty of potential and already has two seasons under his belt as a Lech Poznan regular, showing good enough form to be included in a recent Poland national team squad.
Is he the answer to our right-back dilemma?
