Harold Moukoudi has Celtic written all over him

Celtic got their season back on track at the weekend with a 1-0 win against Hamilton at the weekend.

The Hoops have made a slow start to the new season and were knocked out of the Champions League by AEK Athens. A draw against FK Sudava in the Europa League play-off round first-leg means Brendan Rodgers needs to get a result at Celtic Park to reach the group stages. Despite their struggles in Europe, Celtic have won two of their opening fixtures in the Scottish Premiership.

Ironically, it was Dedyrck Boyata who netted the only goal of the game against Hamilton. The Belgian defender has been widely criticised for his performances, and the Celtic fans displayed a banner stating ‘he wasn’t fit to wear the jersey’. He might have scored the winning goal, but the 27-year-old still needs to be replaced.

The perfect alternative could be Le Havre defender – Harold Moukoudi. Valued at £900k by Transfermarkt, the 20-year-old has emerged as a key player for the Ligue 2 after progressing through their youth academy. He made 33 appearances last season, scoring on four goals and scooping one assist.

Moukoudi is highly-rated in France and could flourish under the tutelage of Rodgers. The Northern Irishman has a reputation for developing youngsters, and the centre-back could be the next player to develop into a star under his leadership. A commanding defender, Moukoudi would add some much-needed steel to the Celtic backline.

Reportedly available for around £5m, this is a move the Hoops definitely need to make.
