Celtic have been rather impressive in the Scottish Premiership in recent times as they continue to build up ahead of steam under Brendan Rodgers.
The Hoops continue to hunt down a third successive treble after the heroics over the past couple of years, but things still haven’t changed for the better in Europe.
Indeed, the Glasgow club could do with strengthening in a couple of areas during the January transfer window after struggling for consistency at times. So, Peter Lawwell could be forced into bringing in a number of players, with the perfect opportunity to secure a third successive treble this season.
With that in mind, if Lawwell seals these 2 January deals, fans will surely love him.
Kyle Walker-Peters has struggled to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans this season after a rather bright pre-season, with a January transfer window loan move potentially in the offing.
Mikael Lustig is getting on with age and has lacked consistency at times this season, so Celtic shouldn’t hesitate to freshen things up by bringing in one of the hottest defensive prospects in English football.
Gary Hooper is loved by Celtic fans from his time at the club between 2010 and 2014, where he hit 82 goals in 138 games. And, the forward is still just 30 and has a wealth of experience under his belt, with the ability to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.
The Englishman hasn’t featured for the Owls this season and faces another injury lay-off which could put him out of action until January time, which means that the Hoops could take a gamble and pick him up for a cut-price.
