The Parkhead club go to Denmark for Wednesday’s second leg, with the tie finely poised at 1-1. Manager Ange Postecoglou has already said he won’t stand in the way of unsettled players if they want to leave.
Brighton are poised to step up their £20million pursuit of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard
Ange Postecoglou has said he won’t stand in the way of unsettled players if they want to leave
Speaking after Saturday’s 6-2 hammering from West Ham, Postecoglou admitted he needed more new players.
Right-back is the priority, with a move for Royal Antwerp’s Portuguese Aurelio Buta taking shape after Sheffield United proved difficult to deal with over George Baldock.
Postecoglou also wants a holding midfielder, another centre-back and another winger, with Croatian club Gorica having placed a £4.2m price-tag on the head of target Kristijan Lovric.
Celtic have lodged an enquiry for the winger, but reports in Croatia claim there is competition from Hellas Verona for the 25-year-old.
Gorica have told suitors they are prepared to listen to offers of €5million (£4.2m)
Sportsmail understands Brighton will wait until Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against FC Midtjylland is over before making a formal offer
