Atletico interested in Celtic's Juranovic

Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic.

The 26-year-old Croatia international had an excellent season for Ange Postecoglu's Scottish Premiership champions after signing from Legia Warsaw last summer.

Celtic are aware that many clubs are interested in signing Juranovic, but they have not received any offers and do not want to sell him.

It would take a huge bid from a club for that stance to change.

Celtic's current record sale is £25m, when Kieran Tierney left for Arsenal in 2019.

Atletico want to add a new right-back with Juranovic's Croatia team-mate Sime Vrsaljko out of contract and Daniel Wass to turn 34 next season. 

The Spanish club have so far been unable to find good value in the market - and Juranovic signed for Celtic for just £2.5m on a five-year deal.

He scored six goals in 41 appearances in all competitions during 2021-22.
