The Belgian right-back has been on the radar of the Hoops since January, with AC Milan also expressing their interest.

Brilliant Performance against Inter

Atalanta picked up a hard-fought draw against Serie-A giants Inter. last week.

The Belgian had another hectic day on the field, as he was tasked with a very defensive role.

Castagne made some vital interceptions and tackles, which left Luciano Spalleti’s side starved of chances.

In the end, Castagne emerged as one of the earnest players on the pitch for La Dea, ensuring an important point to his side.

Why should Celtic go for Castagne?

The Bhoys are on the verge of becoming Premiership champions for the 8th time in a row.

There hasn’t been enough quality at the full-back position this season. The newcomer Jeremy Toljan from Dortmund on loan hasn’t prove to be a productive buy.

The doors are wide open for the position of right-back at Park Head.

And another growing concern for the Hoops fans is Mikael Lustig who is on the twilight of his career.

Mikael Lustig

The 32-year-old has given his best to the club and still prevails as the first choice right defender, but there should definitely be a youngster in his place in the future.

The Celts must seek a move for the former Genk player, even if it takes a lot of money to splurge on.

Castagne -a reliable player

Not all the up-and-coming players in the football would survive in Italy, a place known for moulding defenders. But Castagne has thrived for over two years and continues to impress.

If there is a player whoever needs to succeed Lustig at Park Head, it has to be the 23-year-old.

He is a versatile full-back and can provide cover for Kieran Tierney as well.

Castagne has scored three goals and provided two assists in over 20 appearances this season.

In the Euro qualifiers against Russia last month, he provided an assist to Youri Teielemans.
