Rodgers should consider adding Moses to his Celtic squad after Arzani injury

Rodgers should consider adding Moses to his Celtic squad after Arzani injury

Celtic winger Daniel Arzani has been ruled out for the rest of the season following the knee ligament injury he picked up in his side’s 5-0 victory over Dundee.

“Unfortunately I will need an ACL op, ruling me out till next season,” the Australian told his followers on Twitter.

Manager Brendan Rodgers now has a decision to make with the January transfer window fast approaching. And should the Celtic boss decide he wants to use it to reinforce his attack after Arzani’s injury, then one of his former players could be the answer.

The Breakdown

Chelsea winger Victor Moses is likely to be available this January with Maurizio Sarri effectively confirming the 27-year-old is not in his plans.

“They [Moses and Danny Drinkwater] have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different,” Sarri told outlets such as BBC Sport last week. “Moses is more suitable for playing like a wing-back than like a winger or a full-back.”

With that in mind, Moses is definitely a player Rodgers should consider moving for if he wants to bring in a new winger in January.

At Liverpool, the ex-Nigeria international was often on the fringes during his loan spell at the club when Rodgers was in the Anfield dugout.

However, since then, he has improved significantly as a footballer under former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

And while the Crystal Palace youth product was mostly used as a wing-back, he still possesses the sort of attributes that could make him a successful winger in in the SPL.

Moses is quick, can use both feet and beat a full-back either on the inside or outside. He would be a tremendous addition to Celtic’s squad.
