Celtic: Hoops ‘in the market’ for a striker this summer

Celtic: Hoops ‘in the market’ for a striker this summer -Celtic News

Celtic are ‘in the market’ to bring in a new striker during the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Anthony Joseph.

The Lowdown: Crucial summer for Celtic

This feels like a crucial summer in the transfer market at Parkhead, with the Hoops at a point where they could go on to assert long-term superiority in Scotland.

This year’s Premiership title win was memorable but it is now vital that Ange Postecoglou stays put and builds a lasting legacy at the club.

There are some areas of the pitch where Celtic could do with strengthening in the long-term, with attacking reinforcements certainly not going amiss.

The Latest: Joseph makes Celtic transfer claim

Taking to Twitter, Joseph delivered a ‘transfer state of play’ at Celtic, outlining the various positions being targeted and the current scenario regarding each one.

Addressing Celtic’s pursuit of a striker over the summer, he gave a succinct three-word verdict that the Hoops are “in the market” for a new centre-forward.

Celtic fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Makes perfect sense

While Celtic scored their fair share of goals last season, with 92 in the Premiership, they lacked a truly prolific figure leading the line, which occasionally held them back.

Kyogo Furuhashi ended up leading the way with 17 goals, and while that is a decent tally, it does highlight how the Hoops are missing a truly prolific predator at the apex of their attack. For instance, Odsonne Edouard broke the 20-goal barrier in the league alone in the recent past.

Will Postecoglou sign a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If Postecoglou can acquire the services of a top-class striker, it could take Celtic up another level again,  something which may be needed with Champions League football returning to Parkhead in 2022/23.
