Celtic: Hoops tracking Sinclair Armstrong -Celtic Transfer Rumours

Celtic are thought to be interested in young Irish forward Sinclair Armstrong, according to Goal.

The Lowdown: Armstrong links

Armstrong is 18 years of age and is an out-and-out centre-forward currently on the books with QPR in the English Championship.

He spent part of the current campaign on loan at National League side Torquay United, scoring twice in eight appearances, with Gulls manager Gary Johnson describing him as ‘quick’.

The Hoops were linked with a move for the teenager when Neil Lennon was still in charge last year, and it appears that he is still of interest to Parkhead chiefs.

The Latest: Hoops name-checked

Goal name-checked Celtic with an interest in Armstrong in their live transfer blog (17/01, 10:02).

They suggested that the Hoops have been tracking the forward for a long period of time, with the likes of Brentford, Southampton and Hoffenheim also keen.

However, Manchester City are thought to be leading the race for his services, with the Premier League champions keen to loan him out to one of their City Football Group clubs for a few years.

The Verdict: Another Irish addition?

Ange Postecoglou has already signed three Irish players in James McCarthy, Liam Scales and Johnny Kenny.

Young forward Kenny was the most recent of the three to move to Celtic Park, and you’d expect that Armstrong is also viewed as a future star by Celtic scouts.

He is clearly held in high esteem with a hugely successful club in Man City extremely keen on him, so if the Hoops could somehow win the race for his services, it could be an excellent piece of business in the long run.
