Exciting Celtic target Giannis Bouzoukis has been dubbed as the ‘next Luka Modric’ as interest in the midfielder increases.

According to HITC, Bouzoukis has been compared to the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner and Celtic will face competition in the race to sign him next month, as Inter Milan look set to rival the Hoops in the pursuit.

The report also reveals how highly rated the Panathinaikos midfielder is by Greek ‘football fanatic’ Graham Wood, who believes Bouzoukis has the ability to succeed at Celtic if a move materialises. 

Apart from his awesome surname, which is the same as the Greek musical instrument of the same name, this lad is one of the best young players to come through from Panathinaikos’ famed academy.
