Celtic appear to be stepping up their efforts in the transfer window, with Robert Gumny the latest defender to be linked with a move to Parkhead.

The right-back has long been a target for Celtic, and according to the Celtic Star via the Daily Mail, the Hoops are now said to be eyeing a £6million move for the Lech Poznan man. 

So what could he offer Neil Lennon should a move materialise?

Despite already signing Hatem Abd Elhamed this summer and Kristoffer Ajer filling in well against Motherwell, Lennon still needs reinforcements at the back.

Signing Gumny would be a fine piece of business, especially for a fee in the region of £6million, as it would add further depth to the squad.

The 21-year-old’s arrival would allow Lennon to be versatile with his formations at the back, using Gumny as a wing-back and shifting Elhamed into a back three for example.

The Poland Under-21 international fits the mould of the type of player Celtic like to bring in; a vastly experienced young player, with over 75 appearances for Lech Poznan already, who can offer pace from the back and has room to develop into a better player. 

Should Celtic sign Gumny?
