The transfer window for sides in different countries to negotiate deals is now shut until January and former Coventry City striker Noel Whelan has been discussing whether or not The Hoops will look to make a move for the Premier League player in the winter transfer window.
Speaking via Football Insider, Whelan said, “I think it is a transfer that they might revisit in January. I think it would be a good move for him. A Scotland lad and I am sure at some point he would like to go back home. Celtic could squeeze that last bit of quality out of him to help the team.
“But will West Ham let him go? He is still coming on and doing a job for West Ham. They need all of the experience they can get right now.”
The Irons attacker comes with a lot of experience as he has played 28 times for Scotland, scoring seven times, per Transfermarkt. He is 33 and still a Premier League player. This highlights he definitely has quality coming into the final years of his career.
He could definitely provide an attacking threat, even if he would not be a starting player, as he has scored 98 goals and provided 94 assists throughout his career in his 494 appearances, per Transfermarkt. Therefore it wouldn’t be the worse decision for Celtic to possibly reignite their interest in the Scotsman in January. Any depth which improves the quality of the squad like Snodgrass would, should be welcomed.
Lennon will have to utilise his squad well as they battle in the Europa League and three domestic competitions. If the Hoops look to be in a struggle come January, Snodgrass could give the squad a fresh face to help strengthen them for the remainder of the season.
