According to The Star, Celtic think that a mix of European football and the chance to compete for trophies will entice Sheffield United defender George Baldock to sign to sign for them.

The promising player has emerged as one of Celtic’s key targets ahead of a demanding seven-week period from now till September 1, with The Star stating that new coach Ange Postecoglou has picked Baldock as his top choice after considering a variety of choices.

John Lundstram left no one in any question about why he opted to shift sticks and go north of the border when Old Firm rivals Rangers confirmed the acquisition of Baldock’s former Bramall Lane teammate this week.

It’s not every day that you get the chance to play in the Champions League instead of the Championship.

“As an outsider looking in, the scenes last season were unbelievable when the club won the league, and when I saw that, I knew I wanted to be a part of it and be a part of a club which wins more trophies for Rangers,” Lundstram explained.

“The pull of being in the Champions League was also massive for me.”

Celtic, on the other hand, have yet to approach Sheffield United’s management to indicate their interest, let alone launch a bid.

The Star claims that the former MK Dons and Oxford midfielder is overpriced, citing an £8 million fee as an example.

However, if Celtic do confirm their interest, a defender who has spent much of his career in English football’s lower leagues may regard this as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to gain a seat at Europe’s top table while also collecting trophies on the hallowed Parkhead field.
