Celtic: Bhoys taking keen interest in Nathanael Mbuku - Celtic

Celtic are interested in bringing Stade Reims winger Nathanael Mbuku to Parkhead, according to reports.

Mbuku to Celtic?

The 18-year-old is a versatile midfielder that can play on either side in wide areas and in the number 10 role if needed but typically prefers playing on the left.

Foot Mercato revealed that Neil Lennon’s side, along with Parma, are the front runners to capture the young frontman, with a price tag of €8m (£7.2m) believed to be on his head.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

Described as a “champagne footballer” and “wonderkid” by Goal journalist Tom Binet, Mbuku impressed for France at the U17 World Cup in 2019, picking up the Silver Boot award during the tournament and has since been rewarded with first-team football in Ligue 1.

Mbuku has scored once from 13 appearances this season for Les Rouges et Blancs and has also gone on to score twice for the French U18 side (TransferMarkt).

Transfer Tavern Verdict

The youngster shows a lot of promise – no wonder why Celtic are showing plenty of interest after what the likes of Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard have done for the club.

If he makes the move to Glasgow, he could take a similar path that French strikers before him at Parkhead have embarked on, albeit perhaps not as an out and out number nine.

Mbuku idolises Ronaldo, and if he possesses even a fraction of the Brazil legend’s talent then the Hoops may be tempted to firm up their interest with a bid.
