According to reports from the Daily Record, Celtic are “battling to seal a deal” for Borussia Dortmund defender Jeremy Toljan on transfer deadline day.

The Bhoys boss Brendan Rodgers needs to bolster the defence after he admitted that Filip Benkovic will be out of action until at least mid-March.

Rodgers said that he is hopeful of getting “something done” on Thursday, but at the same time added that he doesn’t expect transfer deadline-day to be chaotic at Parkhead.

Celtic have already signed four players this month, but Rodgers might add a fifth new face of the window before Thursday’s deadline.

Oliver Burke, Timo Weah, Vakoun Issouf Bayo have already joined the club while Maryan Shved, a £1.75 million signing, will return to his club Karpaty Lviv for the remainder of the campaign on loan.

The report claims that Toljan is the top target with the Hoops, trying to nail down a loan deal for 24-year-old.

The Dortmund right-back has struggled from playing time this season, and he could become Celtic’s fifth signing of the January transfer window.
