The World Cup has come and gone but the players that had a great showing at the tournament continue to get linked with a move to top European clubs, especially for the ones that player in much lower Leagues.
This is case of Celtic defender, Josip Juranovic, who starred for Croatia in Qatar at right-back as they went on to clinch a third place finish after getting knocked out by eventual winners, Argentina in the semi-finals.

Juranovic has been heavily linked with an exit from Celtic in recent weeks with numerous European clubs being reported as interested in the 28-year-old right-back, with Gazzetta dello Sport noting that Monza and Torino remain interested in Juranovic.
But according to the latest report, English Premier League side, Manchester United and AS Roma have now turned their interest towards the right-back and could be moving for him, on the back of his showing in Qatar.
The Red Devils need a player that can challenge Diogo Dalot in that position and Erik Ten Hag has shown himself not to be a big fan of Aaron Wam Bissaka, preferring to play Malacia out of position when Dalot wasn’t available last year.
Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, seems to have given his approval to the player when he described him as an absolutely brilliant player during the World Cup.
The report adds that the right-back is waiting for a move to Old Trafford, while the club have reportedly asked him to stay patient for a few more days as they look to offload Wan-Bissaka and make space for him in their squad this month.
He has been one of Celtic’s best-performing players in recent years and was key to them reclaiming the Scottish Premiership title last season from Rangers. Italian side, AS Roma are in the hunt for a new right-back following the recent fallout between their coach, Jose Mourinho and Rick Karsdorp.
The Scottish side are said to be prepared for life without one of their best players as they’ve already signed Canadian international Alistair Johnston from CF Montreal this January.
English Premier League side, Everton are finally set to delve into the transfer market to solve their striking problem and have identified Villarreal forward, Arnaut Danjuma as the best option to revive their attack.
Since the exit of Richarlison, the Toffees have struggled in front of goals and they run the real risk of being drawn into the relegation battle if they don’t start grabbing some points in their next few games.
Danjuma, on his part isn’t new to England as he was signed from Bournemouth by Villarreal. Last season, he was on fire, scoring plenty of goals, but has really struggled this season, hence the Yellow Submarines would have no qualms selling him if the right offer arrives.
