Celtic will look to strengthen their squad as much as possible before they battle next season for their tenth title in a row, and the latest news suggests that they will fight with rivals Rangers for the signature of Lyndon Dykes.
According to Glasgow Live, Dykes’ current club, which is SPFL side Livingston, do not want to sell the striker for less than £2m.
Dykes is reportedly a target for Celtic and Rangers, as well as English Championship clubs Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City, Millwall, Wigan Athletic and Barnsley.
He has been successful for Livingston this season, as the 24-year-old scored 12 goals whilst also picking up ten assists in 33 appearances, per Transfermarkt. He will also go down in the history books at the club as he became first ever player to score a top flight hat-trick when he netted three against Ross County in December 2019.
The striker is young, and has experience in the same division as Celtic. If he had better quality players around him like the ones that the Hoops possess, it leaves the imagination drooling as to how many more goals the Australian could score.
With Odsonne Edouard only 22, the two attackers could become a real threat for the Hoops for many seasons and his arrival would be a huge boost to help the side maintain dominance in the Scottish Premiership. With Neil Lennon looking to tie Edouard down to a new contract, this strike partnership could become a real possibility.
For such a small fee and with numerous clubs interested in him it would not even be a big risk to pay £2m to get him, based on his form this season and the fact that he still has time on his side to get even better.
