Journalist Pete O’Rourke has talked up the idea of Celtic completing the signing of exciting Bayern Munich youngster Christopher Scott this summer.
The Lowdown: Hoops keen on Scott move
Ange Postecoglou already has a strong squad at his disposal at Parkhead, with yet another Scottish Premiership title on the cusp of coming the club’s way.
That’s not to say that new signings don’t need to come in this summer, however, and Scott is one player who has been linked with a move to Celtic.
The Latest: Journalist talks up signing
Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke was positive about Celtic signing Scott, claiming he would be an ‘exciting’ addition:
“It’s an interesting link, this one. Obviously, he’s a young player, only 19. He would maybe fit the bill for Celtic as he’s out of contract in the summer, so he could arrive as a free agent.
“He’s been playing for Bayern Munich’s reserves, so we don’t know too much about him, but at 19, he seems like an exciting attacker.”
The Verdict: One for the future
Scott joining Celtic for free this summer feels like it could be an ideal match for all concerned, with the attacking midfielder clearly not seen as a key player at Bayern moving forward.
He could come in as a squad player under Postecoglou, maturing over time and potentially becoming a key figure, considering he has already played for a club of Bayern’s stature.
Planning for the future is always vital, ensuring the Hoops’ squad doesn’t age together, and Scott is someone who could act as a long-term capture rather than a quick fix, who also has the potential to make an impact from the off.
