Fair enough mutu, Serie A is quite a physical league as well though remember.
Latest information on Nakamura hopefully signing for Celtic.
Nakamura talks on Wednesday
Italian club Reggina hope to come to an agreement with Celtic on Wednesday over the transfer of Japan midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura.
Reggina spokesman Daniele Rindone said: "It is possible that we will come to an agreement for the player.
"There will be a meeting between Reggina and Celtic and it's more likely to be in Glasgow than Milan."
The deal, likely to cost Celtic £2.7m, has been delayed due to negotiations about image rights in Japan.
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan insists that the 27-year-old is keen on signing for the Glasgow club, despite reports suggesting that he would prefer to move to Spain.
"The lad wants to come - contrary to reports - and he knows about the club," said Strachan, who hopes to beat Thursday's Champions League signing deadline.
We are trying to be choosy about who we bring in
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan
"But it is a massive deal. He is a huge personality in Japan and a lot of media rights go along with him.
"That is what is holding up the deal, but I'm sure we will get round that.
"He is a left-footer with a good change of pace.
"He would bring vision to the team and charisma as well I suppose.
"We are trying to be choosy about who we bring in. It would have been easy to bring in loads of Bosmans who are 30 years old.
"We are trying our best to bring in players who will help the group of players who have been here for the last five years - Lennon, Sutton, Hartson, Balde, Varga.
"They need help, not from players who will be dragged along by their coat-tails but who can get in there shoulder to shoulder and try to win trophies."
Strachan pointed out that he had lost 10 first-team players since May and that Didier Agathe, Alan Thompson and Stephen Pearson still had injuries from last season.
Interest shown recently in Nakamura by Deportivo La Coruna and Atletic Madrid has cooled.
Meanwhile, Celtic boss Gordon Strachan remains interested in Southampton pair Claus Lundekvam and Paul Telfer and are poised to sign defender Adam Virgo from Brighton for £1.5m.
Adding Virgo and Nakamura would take Strachan's summer arrivals to six following the signings of Mo Camara, Maciej Zurawski, Jeremie Aliadiere and Artur Boruc.
