Celtic: Hoops on brink of Thomas Henry deal

Celtic: Hoops on brink of Thomas Henry deal -Celtic

Celtic are on the brink of winning the race for OH Leuven striker Thomas Henry, according to The Scottish Sun.

The Lowdown: Henry profiled

Henry is a French centre-forward who has been with his current employers in Belgium since 2019.

He’s scored 45 goals in 78 appearances for Leuven, with his career tally standing at 67 goals in 173 games.

The 26-year-old is on just €150,000-a-year (£127,000) with Leuven and is at the absolute peak of his powers, with his Transfermarkt valuation standing at a career-high £4.5m.

The Latest: Celtic move

The Scottish Sun ran a story late on Monday evening, suggesting the Hoops are hopeful of securing a big-money deal for Henry.

The report claims that Ange Postecoglou’s side are in pole position to sign the striker, who is viewed as the ideal replacement for Odsonne Edouard.

Leuven are reluctantly willing to cash in on Henry, with a number of clubs keen.

The Verdict: Much-needed

Even though Kyogo Furuhashi netted a hat-trick on the weekend, replacing Edouard, who has been tipped to join Brighton, is crucial, so a move for Henry looks a smart move at first glance.

He’s an out-and-out centre-forward and has just come off the back of his most productive season in front of goal, striking every 132 minutes in the Jupiler Pro League.

The 6 foot 4 striker could be exactly what Postecoglou needs going forward, and it appears as if the Hoops are willing to back the boss to secure Henry’s signature.
