Celtic will prioritise a move for a new striker in the summer transfer window, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The lowdown: Injury-hit department
Albeit goals have been in rich supply at Celtic Park this season as Ange Postecoglou’s side sit top of the table having found the back of the net on 81 occasions, ten more than Old Firm rivals Rangers, the attacking department hasn’t been without its issues.
This has meant Postecoglou has had to be inventive with his options at times this term, a dilemma that could be rectified in the market this summer…
The latest: Signings expected
Speaking to The Transfer Tavern, O’Rourke has stated that additions can be expected in the striker department as the Bhoys boss looks to bolster the Parkhead ranks.
“There are times they’ve had to play Abada as a lone striker in some games so I think Postecoglou, to build on the good work he’s already doing, will be looking for striking reinforcements with Maeda coming in January.
“I am sure he’ll be looking at other potential targets to enhance his attacking options.”
The verdict: Exciting times
On the brink of recapturing the Scottish Premiership, already with the League Cup trophy in the cabinet and facing the likely possibility of UEFA Champions League group stage football next season, it’s no surprise that Postecoglou would already be considering reinforcements.
Despite the January capture of Daizen Maeda, the Hoops squad is still somewhat short of natural striker options and therefore a signing would be welcomed, especially with the prospect of facing Europe’s elite looming.
Will Celtic win the title?
I'm not so sure!
Already linked with Caen striker Alexandre Mendy, an attacking arrival could be imminent once the 2021/22 season has been drawn to its successful conclusion.
