Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern are packing their bags, their Champions League qualifier is just around the corner.
Our punters are hoping for a better performance in the competition than last year. Celtic completed the domestic treble but faced a group exit from the Champions League after being drawn alongside Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich. The Hoops travel to Armenia next week to face champions Alashkert in their first Champions League qualifier.
Brendan Rodgers has made just one permanent signing thus far, paying £9m to PSG to keep Odsonne Eduoard at the club. Our regulars are hoping the Northern Irishman will secure some signatures in the coming weeks with the start of the season getting closer and closer.
One man he should target is Liverpool youngster – Harry Wilson. Valued at £900k by Transfermarkt, the Welshman has been heavily linked with a move to Rangers after Steven Gerrard took over as manager. The 21-year-old was loaned to Hull City for the last half of the season and scored seven goals as well as registering three assists in just 11 appearances.
He is considered one of the top prospects on Merseyside, but his route to the first-team is currently blocked due to the form of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Jurgen Klopp may decide another loan move is the best course of action.
Wilson would fit right into Rodgers’ system at Celtic Park. With excellent dribbling ability and bags of pace, he would be a nightmare for defenders. He is desperate for the chance to prove himself. Therefore, Celtic need to beat Rangers to his signature.
