The report was according German outlet Fussballeck via Football Weeks that claimed the 29-year-old Dortmund defender is a target for Scottish giants Celtic whilst also stating Ligue 1 giants St Etienne are also interested in him.
According to the reports, the Bhoys could sanction a move for Subotic as part of reinforcement for the defensive woes and serve as a replacement for injured Marvin Compper who joined the club earlier this month from RB Leipzig. If these latest transfer rumour is true then Celtic fans will be happy.
Subotic has struggled to play regularly for the Bundesliga side in recent season and has had injury issues, but there is no doubt that the Serbian international has quality in abundance.
The centre-back was a key player in Dortmund’s winning the Bundesliga title under Jurgen Klopp – now the manager of Liverpool – in 2011 and 2012 – and has also been a success in the Champions League.
Rodgers’ could do with another centre-back in his squad, and signing a player of Subotic’s calibre and quality is only going to make his side better.
The Hoops fans are excited at the prospect of the Glasgow giants signing the defender this month and we have highlighted the best tweets from them all.
That'd be a great signing

Amazing player but doubt we’d be able to afford his wages

What a signing he would be.

Celtic being linked with Neven Subotic of Borrusia Dortmund, can't see it happening in a million years but he is an awesome player. Was outstanding in the Champs League final a few years back beside big Hummels!!!

Cheers Derek. I think he would be a great signing. Defence badly needs a Champion League experience defender. Thanks again.
