According to Tuttomercatoweb, Celtic left back Boli Bolingoli is closing in on a shock move to Roma after talks on Tuesday.

It’s claimed that Bolingoli’s arrival ‘is approaching’, with Roma viewing him as a replacement for Aleksandar Kolarov, who joined Inter Milan yesterday.

Basaksehir are allegedly keen to take him to Turkey, whilst Anderlecht and Royal Antwerp are prepared to bring him back to Belgium.

Roma are the favourites though, and talks allegedly took place yesterday as the Italian giants look to get him signed quickly.

Bolingoli joined Celtic from Rapid Vienna for £3million last summer, with the Bhoys signing him as Kieran Tierney’s replacement.

The 24-year-old blew hot and cold last season, showing some defensive fragility which ultimately resulted in Greg Taylor leapfrogging him ahead of this season.

Bolingoli then broke pandemic protocol earlier this season, drawing ire from fans and even Celtic themselves as the Belgian’s mistake caused uproar.

Celtic have been linked with a number of other left backs recently, suggesting that they’re open to letting Bolingoli leave – but few could have predicted a move to one of Italy’s biggest sides off the back of a patchy year in Scotland.
