Reiss Nelson would be a top addition at Celtic

Celtic and Brendan Rodgers are eyeing another season of silverware but having seen Rangers make a promising start to the season, they could be pushed until the very end. 

The Hoops have a reputation to keep as the best team in Scotland and after winning the treble two years in a row, Rangers will have to improve a lot under Steven Gerrard in the hope of undoing that glorious Celtic record.

Celtic have strengthened in the transfer market, particularly after their disappointing Champions League exit but with time still to go until deadline day, the Hoops should be looking for one more player full of attacking quality.

Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson is a top youngster destined to reach the top of English football but to get there, he needs experience and that is something Celtic can offer after losing Patrick Roberts and Charly Musonda over the summer.

The 18-year-old – who has been strongly linked with Hoffenheim – made his bow in the first team last season as he was utilised eight times in the Europa League, as well as getting three Premier League appearances. For the rest his time last season, Nelson spent it banging in the goals for their U23 side, nine in 11 matches to be precise.

With the ability to play on either wing, Nelson offers tremendous pace, trickery and ability to beat a man, something Celtic really desire after losing two wingers in the summer. Nelson, 18, has years ahead of him to reach his peak potential but a loan move to Celtic, where regular football would be guaranteed is a smart move for the youngster and one he would have to consider.
