Football teams across the globe will be looking to make possible acquisitions on transfer deadline day, and Scottish Premiership side Celtic are seemingly no different.
Manager Neil Lennon is still looking to strengthen the Hoops, and this has seen Celtic linked with a move for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson.
According to The Scottish Sun, the Bhoys have been looking into the availability of Wilson, who is a Welsh international. It looked like he would be heading to Burnley, but this move has seemingly fallen through.
The Reds would still like a fee for the winger, who also wants a full-time move, however a loan move to Scotland looks more likely if any deal is to made this late in the window.
It looks like transfer deadline day has come at a perfect time for Celtic to hijack this transfer to Burnley, and there is no doubt that the 23 year-old would definitely be a good addition for Neil Lennon.
He has a very respectable goal-contribution record as he has managed 65 goals and 30 assists in 175 appearances, per Transfermarkt. He has already scored three times in 17 appearances for Wales and the amount of goals and appearances that he has at such a young age highlights that he has potential to succeed at a very high level.a
It is understandable why the player might not have fancied a loan move if he got his wish as he has been shipped out by Liverpool to four different sides in five years, per Transfermarkt. However Celtic is a great place to get some great experience on loan, and with the Hoops winning the Scottish Premiership for the last nine seasons, he is around some very good players who can teach him a lot.
Celtic also are in the Europa League so Wilson can get some great European experience in that competition too. All-in-all, the move seems to benefit all parties and it would be very intriguing to see how the winger would do in Scotland and whether he can force his way into the Liverpool setup if he had a good spell.
