A lot of Celtic fans are rating Mohamed Elyounoussi’s time at the club so far after the question was posted by a fan page on Twitter.
The winger is currently on loan at the Scottish side from Premier League outfit Southampton, and it is at his parent club where the player failed to perform, managing 19 games in England and not managing a single goal or assist during those appearances, per Transfermarkt.
Celtic fans, would you sign Elyounoussi in the summer?
However it looks like he started to revitalise his career north of the border, as he has managed seven goals and six assists during his 20 matches in all competitions whilst at the Hoops.
The only thing that has stopped him scoring more for the side is the fact that he suffered an injury from November to February, via Transfermarkt. Due to his good performances, some fans are wondering whether they should make a permanent move for the Saints player in the summer. The Daily Record reported that a deal could be done for around £9 million.
It might not be easy to sign the Norwegian however as he recently spoke to the media about his future and said, via tv2: “I still have three years left of the contract with Southampton and I want to show myself from a better side than what I have done. I hope I can come back and fight back a place. But at the same time, I really want to finish the season in Celtic and win the league.”
Fans will have to wait and see what happens as the summer transfer window approaches.
Here is what they had to say about the player:
A fully fit El Yanoussi is a 10/10 player! Invest in him have faith and watch him grow at Celtic park

A complete waste of time tbh. Had a good initial 2 months and the next 4 on the treatment table. Not his fault obviously but we need our players on the park. Just take a look at Broony and Calmac.

Probs around a 7… For the money they are looking for a think we can get someone in with a bit more pace

On the park? 8. Solid winger, needs some time to mesh with the team more. Overall? 5-6. Not that it’s his fault he got injured but players are encouraged to immediately request to be subbed off as injuries are a result of “just walk it off and push through it” mentality.

Looks decent just a shame he got injured I’d maybe take him on loan again might be a bit too expensive to sign him permanently

Showed his limitations in the Copenhagen home game, after some promising performances n the early European games. 6/10 won’t be terribly missed.
