Celtic: Dundee United give update on former target Lawrence Shankland

Celtic: Dundee United give update on former target Lawrence Shankland - Celtic

Celtic were linked with Dundee United centre-forward Lawrence Shankland in the past, and recent comments from his current club suggest that they are braced for the player to leave in the summer.

Sporting director for the recently promoted side, Tony Asghar spoke to BBC Sport Scotland about the player and said, “If bids come in, we’ll have to look at them.

“[We’ll assess] the situation financially, whether it’s going to help the club long term. [It is] strange times, but ultimately we definitely want to hold on to him.”

How many goals did Chris Sutton score for the club?

The 24 year-old was crucial to Dundee United’s success this year, as he scored 24 goals whilst picking up two assists in 26 league games, and it was noticed by Scotland who gave him his debut in October 2019, per Transfermarkt. Since then he has played for the national side twice and scored one goal.

Would Shankland be a good signing?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The signing could be a real smart move for the Hoops if they were to reignite their interest, they currently have Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths at the club, who have scored 31 goals between them in the division this season, per BBC Sport, but with Griffiths seen as more of a substitute as he nears his 30’s the club will need someone as prolific in the near future to follow in Griffiths’ footsteps, and Shankland could be the ideal forward to do that.

Added to that, there are also persistent rumours linking Edouard with an exit, with the latest suggesting Tottenham have been scouting the Frenchman. If he were to depart, Shankland could be a good option to replace him.
