TFA Scouted: Gustaf Lagerbielke signs for Celtic for €3.4m from Elfsborg – scout report
Gustaf Lagerbielke signs for Celtic for €3.4m from Elfsborg – we originally scouted Lagerbielke back in February 2022 and tracked him throughout, believing at each stage he was ready for a move to a Tier 1 club.
Who is Gustaf Lagerbielke?
“Gustaf Lagerbielke is a young ball-playing center back who generally plays in the middle of a back 3. He shows immense composure and maturity on the ball and has the passing range with both feet to go with it. He is confident building out from the back under pressure but can also play more advanced passes through lines or switch the play with long diagonals. He is a genuine aerial threat in the opposition box and has a goal in him. Defensively he is very solid and shows great positioning sense and anticipation to cover for his defenders consistently. He is strong in both aerial and ground duels and rarely makes a rash tackle or decision.”
