Celtic: Poaching free agent Adam Maher would make Hoops a creative force

Celtic fans, how does it feel to be treble-treble winners then? What an achievement, to be the undisputed best of the best in Scotland isn’t easy, and if they’re to go another year and make it four straight trebles this summer’s business will need to be meticulous. One move they can’t afford to miss is that of Adam Maher, the Dutchman available on a free this summer.

The Dutch midfielder is set to become a free agent for the second time in his career at the end of his current deal with Eredivisie club AZ Alkmaar, but the Dutchman is far too good to be without a club and he could add some real creative firepower to the Glasgow side. A Transfermarkt valuation of £3.6 million and a return of two goals and five assists pulling the strings from deep for AZ is mightily impressive.

The report that has linked Neil Lennon’s Celtic with a move for the midfield man has come from Dutch outlet De Telegraaf and if you’re a Celtic fan it will be hard not to get excited over this one. It may be easy to think Maher isn’t all that as his contract with AZ expires, but he can add some real bite to a Celtic attack that’s threatening to lose its bite.

In the last few months of the season since Lennon stepped in and replaced Brendan Rodgers, the Bhoys failed to score in four of their last eleven league games and only managed 13 goals in that time anyway. Maher would help to combat that, and if he was to sign then the likes of Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic will have some cause for concern, as the Dutchman could be a real star at Parkhead.
