Celtic will be desperate to mount an unassailable lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table in the near future, with the opportunity to secure yet another treble under Brendan Rodgers.
The Hoops have already managed to bring in a number of players this month, including the likes of Oliver Burke, Timothy Weah and Vakoun Issouf Bayo. But, there’re still a couple more areas to improve in that are of greater importance, with Mikael Lustig struggling to produce and quality cover required at the heart of the defence.
Indeed, Rodgers needs to make the most of the remaining days in the January transfer window by securing a couple of star players to help bring even more silverware to Celtic Park.
Of course, Weah and Burke have already enjoyed success in Scotland since joining earlier on this month, but Rodgers can go one better by securing this star DUO…
Samir Memisevic is they type of player who could come in and make an instant impact the Celtic. His three main strengths are his mobility, pressing, and ability to play the ball out from the back, which would benefit a free-flowing side like Celtic massively.
Dedryck Boyata hasn’t been at his best in the current campaign and he appears to be leaning towards a summer exit, so Memisevic could do a solid job in the present and the future for the Hoops.
Moritz Bauer has only made seven first-team appearances for English Championship side Stoke City in the current campaign, so a January loan move would make sense.
The Austrian international loves to get forward but is also very good at tracking back and making a tackle when needed, which makes him very effective both in defence and attack.
Sadly, Mikael Lustig hasn’t lived up to expectations in the current campaign as he continues to produce errors on the right-hand side for the Hoops, so Bauer would be a big upgrade on the Sweden international. Indeed, securing the services of the 27-year-old would fix Celtic’s problem position.
