According to the latest reports from Daily Mail as cited by Daily Record, Celtic are preparing a £6m move for Robert Gumny this summer. The Polish right-back has been linked with the club since the Rodgers era, and it seems like the Hoops are finally ready to bring him at the club.
The Poland u-21 international currently plies his trade for Lech Poznan in the Polish top flight. The 21-year-old is already regular at his club and is rated highly, so it is no surprise to see that the Bhoys need to spend upwards of £5m to get him this summer. The fullback has his contract with Poznan until 2021. Gumny made 21 appearances last season as he missed a fair bit of action due to a knee injury.
Celtic’s right back woes
The Hoops recently completed the signing of Hatem Abd Elhamed who has done well playing as a right back. However, he does not have much experience of playing in that position, and he could be found out against tough opponents.
The club lost three right-sided fullbacks from last summer, and it is no surprise to see Lennon going after another right back in this window. Anthony Ralston is also an option, but it is clear that he is not yet ready for first-team football.
Pros of signing Gumny
Gumny is a typical modern-day right-back who loves to bomb forward at every opportunity. The defender is even comfortable in playing as a right-sided midfielder because of his attacking qualities. The Polish youngster is known to have quick feet which allows him to get out of tight spaces, and his searing pace can be a real asset for Lennon. The 21-year-old is also known to be a hard worker, and he is bursting with energy throughout the game.
Cons of signing him
The Polish fullback might have some trouble dealing with the physicality of the Scottish league. He is not the most robust young player, and he might get shrugged off the ball. Gumny hasn’t played football outside of Poland yet, so he might take some time to settle in at the club and get going straight away.
What should Lennon do?
Gumny is worth considering for the price as he can be a long term option at the club. Lennon might have to be patient with him initially, but the youngster has the potential to make the right-back spot his own once he gets the hang of Premiership football.
