What does the future hold for Timothy Weah at Paris Saint-Germain?

Timothy Weah can be relatively pleased with how his loan spell at Celtic went.

The 19-year-old managed to get some real first-team experience during his short stint at Celtic Park, came up with a few goals and finished the campaign as a Scottish League title winner.

Despite that, according to The Telegraph, a return to Glasgow is unlikely, leaving Weah in a predicament.

RMC report (via Get French Football News) that the USA international’s parent club Paris Saint-Germain are looking to offload him permanently in the summer, with Celtic seemingly not a viable option.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, could be a possible destination, according to the same outlet.

The striker position is, of course, one Roy Hodgson has had a problem with this season, so it is no surprise that the Eagles boss is looking at a No.9 like Weah.

As a lone centre-forward, Weah would perhaps not be the best of options. The PSG man is not a physical frontman; you could easily see him struggling to play with his back towards goal in a very physical division such as the Premier League.

But playing off of someone in a 4-4-2, for example, a formation Hodgson favours, Weah could be able to come up with the goods.

While his more physical strike partner occupies the opposition’s centre-halves, the Ligue 1 youngster can exploit any space left behind with his electrifying pace.

In such situations and on the counter, he could prove to be an insanely deadly player at Selhurst Park.

Ultimately, sign Weah, and that is one half of Hodgson’s striker problem solved if he plans to continue using a 4-4-2 next season.
