Celtic: Transfer insider makes Ahmed Kendouci claim

Celtic: Transfer insider makes Ahmed Kendouci claim -Celtic News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has made a claim regarding reported Celtic target Ahmed Kendouci, Give Me Sport report.

The Lowdown: Kendouci links

Ange Postecoglou has already signed five players this month, with focus now seemingly on moving some squad members on before Monday’s deadline.

Three of the five through the Parkhead door this month have been midfielders, however, journalist Pete O’Rourke thinks the Hoops could be after another following a failed swoop for Riley McGree.

He recently name-checked Kendouci as a possible target, with Celtic linked with a move for the ‘creative’ playmaker earlier this month.

The Latest: Jones’ comments

Transfer insider Jones gave his thoughts regarding the 22-year-old to Give Me Sport in a story shared on Tuesday evening.

He gave a glowing reference on the Algerian, labelling him as a player with ‘huge potential’.

“From what I’ve heard, this guy’s got huge potential. And Celtic would be a great stepping stone for him at this stage in his career.”

The Verdict: Handy?

Postecoglou relied heavily on Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and David Turnbull prior to the New Year, however, two of the three are currently out injured.

The Hoops now have a plethora of options following moves for Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Matt O’Riley, however, Kendouci could be viewed as a more attack-minded midfielder.

Rogic is the only out and out attacking midfielder on the books at Parkhead, so landing Kendouci, valued at £1.17m, could be a shrewd low-risk move.

Michael Nicholson will have to be quick in order to finalise a sixth signing, though, with Monday’s deadline quickly approaching.
