News: Celtic Increase Their Interest in an EPL Defender Rated at €6 Million

Celtic are gearing up for a crucial summer transfer window, aiming to bolster their ranks with first-team ready signings after a few lacklustre transfer windows. Amidst their ambitious plans, a recent report from TEAMtalk highlights Celtic’s renewed interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ left-back, Hugo Bueno.

After an initial loan bid for the 20-year-old fell through in January, Brendan Rodgers is poised to make a summer move for Bueno. The interest from Celtic came very late in the window and Wolves wouldn’t play ball with the hoops

Celtic Summer Transfer Window

This summer represents a significant period for Celtic, with the club focused on making impactful acquisitions. The pursuit of Hugo Bueno underscores a clear intent to strengthen the squad’s depth and quality, especially in the defensive department.

Bueno’s recent performance in the FA Cup, where he nearly led Wolves to a semi-final spot before a heartbreaking defeat to Coventry, showcased his potential. Despite the setback, Bueno’s talent and value for money make him an attractive prospect for Celtic.

Acquired by Wolves in 2019 for a mere £3k from CD Areosa, Bueno has faced challenges in securing a consistent first-team spot. Celtic’s interest in him offers a promising pathway to regular top-flight football, an opportunity that both the player and the Scottish giants could greatly benefit from.

With the summer window on the horizon, Celtic’s pursuit of Bueno could mark the beginning of a transformative recruitment phase aimed at restoring the club’s competitive edge both domestically and in Europe.

Hugo is contracted to Wolves until 2028, meaning the English side holds all the cards. Transfermarkt have the defender priced at €6m and while those valuations should always b taken with a pinch of salt, it does factor in the hidden EPL tax – if you’re a player in an EPL squad there is a certain amount attached to your fee without you having to really do anything.
