Maik Nawrocki is set to be confirmed as Celtic’s latest summer signing after reportedly undergoing a medical.

The 22-year-old Legia Warsaw centre-back is expected to sign a five-year contract to join the Premiership champions in a deal worth in excess of £4million. Polish outlet state Nawrocki is close to being officially confirmed as a Celtic player.

He will add further depth to Brendan Rodgers’ backline as the manager prepares his squad for the new season. Celtic rounded off their tour of Japan with a 1-0 win over Gamba Osaka earlier on Saturday and could have a new arrival waiting when they return to Glasgow.

According to the Daily Mail, Nawrocki spoke with former Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic before taking the decision to move to Scotland, having followed in the Croatian’s footsteps in breaking through at Legia. Celtic have already confirmed the signings of Odin Thiago Holm, Marco Tilio and the conversion of Tomoki Iwata’s loan into a permanent contract. Announcements for South Korean pair Yang Hyun-Jun and Kwon Hyeok-Kyu are expected to follow once paperwork requirements have been met.

Nawrocki spent his youth career in the academy of Bundesliga side Werder Bremen before moving to Legia, initially on-loan. He has represented Poland at youth level and was named in the senior side’s provisional World Cup 2022 squad before being omitted from the final selection. He was also a target for Turkish giants Galatasaray, but has chosen Celtic as his next destination.

Rodgers has previously confirmed there will also be several outgoings as he finalises his squad for the upcoming campaign. Striker Albian Ajeti was left out of the Japan tour but is reportedly in no rush to depart Celtic.

Ajeti, a £5m acquisition from West Ham United in summer 2020, still has a further year remaining on his Parkhead contract. And reports indicate he intends to see out that final 12 months.

Ajeti spent last season on-loan with Swiss club Stum Graz and it was widely expected he would be among those to leave Celtic for good this summer, having barely had any first-team involvement over the past two years. Meanwhile, Rodgers is also set to make decisions on a number of other fringe players, having used the early stages of his return to ‘assess’ their futures.
