Celtic should look to bringing in a defender by making use of the loan system as they have been vulnerable at the back in recent years.
The Hoops will be desperate to secure the treble once again after a couple of terrific campaigns in previous years. Although, improvements are needed defensively, and one player who has shown plenty of quality and could come on leaps and bounds under regular minutes is Liverpool’s Joe Gomez, who is currently valued at £19.8 million by Transfermarkt.
Brendan Rodgers brought the 21-year-old to Anfield when he was in charge and he could look for a reunion in the form of a loan deal this summer. The versatile defender has the ability to play at right-back and at the heart of the defence, which makes him invaluable to any side. But, with the Reds already having a number of defensive players in his suited positions, a loan move away to Celtic would provide him with regular minutes and a chance to impress on the European stage.
The only thing that could put an end to any possible interest in taking him on loan would be a string of injuries at Anfield, which is why the Reds may want to include a recall clause in his contract if a deal is concluded in the future. Celtic could make use of the youngster at either right-back or at the heart of the defence, with his high-level experience and quality working wonders for the Hoops.
