Celtic: Anthony Joseph says Hoops could sign a striker

Celtic: Anthony Joseph says Hoops could sign a striker -Celtic News

Celtic could look to sign a striker in the summer transfer window even though it isn’t a ‘priority’, according to journalist Anthony Joseph.

The Lowdown: Busy summer ahead for Celtic?

The Hoops are on the verge of regaining the Premiership title this season but Ange Postecoglou probably won’t be resting on his laurels moving forward.

He will surely want to keep improving his squad in the coming years, especially with Champions League football likely to come to Parkhead in 2022/23.

An update has now emerged regarding the possibility of Celtic strengthening in one particular position in the summer transfer window.

The Latest: Joseph makes Celtic transfer claim

Taking to Twitter, Joseph hinted that signings a striker will be on the agenda for Celtic, as Postecoglou looks to add more firepower to his squad. The journalist claimed:

“I’d imagine they’ll be looking for a striker in the summer… unless Albian Ajeti bursts back onto the scene AND Ange Postecoglou sees Daizen Maeda as a striker long-term. Not a priority, though.”

The Verdict: Makes sense

As Joseph alludes to, it isn’t necessarily essential that a new striker comes in at Parkhead this summer. It certainly wouldn’t go amiss, though, with any team surely grateful to have a dependable goalscorer to call upon.

Liel Abada (10) is the only Celtic player to reach double figures in the league this season, and while the goals have been shared out healthily, bringing in a player who routinely breaks the 20-goal barrier in a campaign could take them up another level.

Whether Postecoglou actually pushes the boat out to sign a striker remains to be seen, though, with Joseph saying that it isn’t a priority and the manager perhaps believing that the transfer budget could be focused on strengthening other parts of the squad.
