With Moussa Dembele having been sold in the summer and Leigh Griffiths currently on leave due to off-field problems, Celtic are expected to bring in reinforcements up front when the transfer window opens.
And one name that is being strongly linked with a move to Celtic Park is Paris Saint-Germain’s Timothy Weah.
According to the Guardian, Weah, the son of George Weah, is one of two strikers Brendan Rodgers is hoping to add to his squad in January with the 18-year-old having already followed a host on Celtic players on Instagram after announcing his plans to leave the Parc des Princes on loan.
Targeting young and talented players such as Weah from some of Europe’s biggest clubs is a strategy Rodgers has gone with since arriving in Glasgow, and it is one that has worked well for him so far making any potential move for Weah a very smart one.
Have a look at what Celtic supporters are saying about the USA international below…
He looks a player jim he has pace and that’s a killer, cheers

Love it even if it’s only a short loan. Had looked pretty good for the US national team.

Looks like a loan till the end of the season.
We are light on forwards- should be an exciting signing!
Along with Manny Perez – could be two Americans thru the end of the season.
Also Matt Polster trained with Rangers last week.
