Celtic in the hunt for Alberth Elis

Celtic may have already added a number of additions to their attacking ranks this January as they look to strengthen their squad for the Scottish Premiership title.

The Bhoys have acquired Timothy Weah, Oliver Burke and Vakoun Issouf Bayo this winter, however, it appears another winger is on their radar this month.

According to a report by Football Insider, Houston Dynamo’s Alberth Elis is thought to have attracted the interest of Brendan Rodgers’ side.


The Honduras international has been impressing in the MLS over the last two seasons, making him one of the players to keep an eye on.

Still only 22-years-old, the winger has hit double figures in both of his campaigns with Houston and has attracted the likes of Fenerbahce and West Bromwich Albion with his performances.

However, it is claimed the MLS outfit are reluctant to let Elis leave this month and value him at around £5million.

The Verdict:

Celtic have already made a number of exciting additions this January, however, Elis would be an excellent signing as well.

Both Weah and Burke are at the Hoops on loan and Rodgers’ side would be right to look for someone to be able to turn to in the future.

With the way the 22-year-old has been playing over the past few seasons, he would certainly be an exciting player for the Bhoys, although the competition for the Honduran’s signature appears to be fierce.
