Celtic: Frank McAvennie reacts to forward rumour -Celtic Transfer Rumours

Celtic pundit Frank McAvennie believes that the Hoops will bring in more players before the January transfer window slams shut, as per Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Source shares update

Ange Postecoglou has already brought in four players this month, two of which have been attacking additions in Daizen Maeda and Johnny Kenny.

Celtic are also hoping to make Jota’s loan stay permanent, as well as Cameron Carter-Vickers, in what could be an expensive month for Parkhead chiefs.

A source informed Football Insider that the Hoops are actively looking to bring in another wide forward after Jota, with Shabab Al-Ahli’s Mehdi Ghayedi thought to be a player of interest.

The Latest: McAvennie reacts

McAvennie was talking to Football Insider regarding the possibility of more arrivals over the coming weeks.

He seemed fairly confident Michael Nicholson and co will grant Postecoglou’s wishes and is ‘sure’ there will be further announcements, saying:

“Maybe people were expecting even more signings straight away after the three lads were announced in December.

“I’m sure those deals will get done. We’re still waiting to hear about Jota and Carter-Vickers, I hope they arrive.

“Kenny has come in but I’m not sure how much of a role he will play this season.

“We are not even halfway through the window yet, there is plenty of time to sign these players who will instantly improve us.

“I’m sure they will come because Postecoglou has already been heavily backed and he’s doing such a good job.

“I can’t speak highly enough of him. I didn’t think we would be where we are already.”

The Verdict: Wide forward needed?

It’s certainly exciting that the Hoops are still looking to bolster their squad, but they already have seven wide options on the books, so perhaps looking at other positions could be a smarter move.

Take left-back, for example, where Greg Taylor is first choice. The club are set to send Adam Montgomery out on loan and they are also looking to offload Boli Bolingoli.

Should the pair depart over the coming weeks, Taylor would be the only left-back available to Postecoglou. Although Josip Juranovic can switch over from right-back to provide cover, perhaps bringing in another natural left-back to genuinely compete with Taylor could be a wise call.
