Celtic: Two left-field striking options to sign this summer

Celtic: Two left-field striking options to sign this summer

Who will be leading Celtic’s attack next season?

That’s surely a question on every Hoops fans’ mind right now, as both Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah are set to move back to their parent clubs in the summer. So, as both key strikers move away, the Bhoys need to sign a few more top strikers to keep on flooding in goals for them.

They need a striker who can suit their incisive style pretty well and has fluid finishing to help them compete on all fronts. Someone like Moussa Dembele. Not a particularly helpful suggestion, granted, but the Frenchman was the exact type of striker to do that.

So, with all that in mind, here are two such options.

Dominic Solanke

He might’ve recently completed a move to AFC Bournemouth, but Solanke’s struggling to get ahead of Callum Wilson in the lineup.

Still quite raw to cut it at the Premier League, Celtic could capitalize on the situation by getting him on loan and developing him, as they did with Dembele of course.

Despite not scoring much lately, Solanke’s known to be a clever striker capable of making incisive movement into the box. The 21-year-old’s finishing is also solid, making him big enough to thrive at the Scottish Premiership and be the goal-scoring lynchpin for the Hoops.

Jordan Rhodes

Despite starting the season brightly with Norwich City, Rhodes has quickly fallen out of favour at Daniel Farke’s side as the German implements a style of play not at all suited to the Scotland international.

He last started a game in October and doesn’t seem to be in their plans for potential promotion to the Premier League. With that in mind, Celtic should eye a quality striker here, who’s proven his goal-scoring potential in recent years. Rhodes scored six goals for the Canaries this campaign, displaying predatorial instincts in the box and scoring clever goals.

Indeed, he could be the solution to their striking issues and light up Parkhead with his clinical goal-scoring capabilities.

Celtic fans, can these strikers help light up Parkhead next season? Join the discussion by commenting below.
