Celtic may reignite their interest in Liverpool centre-back Ben Davies this summer.
That’s the views of pundit Paul Robinson, with the former goalkeeper believing that a possible deal will come down to the identity of Neil Lennon’s successor as Hoops manager.
Celtic’s Ben Davies saga
Celtic were first linked with Davies back in August 2020, but they waited until the New Year before lodging a bid to tie up a pre-contract for the 25-year-old.
Would Davies be a good signing for Celtic?
“It seemed like a strange addition at the time. To get to the last day of the window… I think they were shopping in places they did not want to shop.”
“If you look at Liverpool’s squad, when all of the centre-halves are fit or even Henderson and Fabinho are fit, he will not play or even get in the squad.”
“Celtic may re-visit it in the summer but it will be very dependent on who comes in there.”
Transfer Tavern take
Based on that, we agree with Robinson in believing the Hoops could go back in for the £2.7m-rated ace. He’ll surely want to be playing regularly, and you’d imagine he’ll know all about the Hoops after almost penning terms at Parkhead.
