Celtic are interested in signing Ferencvaros striker Ryan Mmaee during the summer transfer window, according to a fresh claim doing the rounds.
The Lowdown: Attacking reinforcements needed?
Ange Postecoglou is already working hard on getting some summer business done, with Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jota hoping to seal permanent moves to Parkhead.
With a Premiership title defence and a return to the Champions League coming in 2022/23, a number of new players may be required across several positions.
It could be that a new striker comes in to increase the competition for places up front and bring more firepower to the squad, with a new transfer claim suggesting as much.
The Latest: Celtic eye up Mmaee signing
According to The Daily Record, Celtic are keen on signing Mmaee this summer, with ‘extensive data analysis undertaken’ in recent months as Postecoglou is keen to strengthen the firepower within his squad.
The Verdict: Shrewd summer addition
Mmaee could be an ideal player to bring in for the Hoops this summer, with Postecoglou already seeing up close the threat the 24-year-old can provide following the two Europa League clashes against Ferencvaros.
The forward also has four goals in 11 caps for Morocco, highlighting his international pedigree, so a move to Celtic is unlikely to be too daunting for him.
For all of the Hoops’ brilliance in 2021/22, Liel Abada was their leading scorer in the Premiership with just 10 goals, so Mmaee could be the man to add that greater attacking threat that Postecoglou is apparently seeking.
