Celtic are running away with the Ladbrokes Premiership title in what is turning out to be a sensational season for them. Brendan Rodgers has assembled a core team of highly performing assets which can boast of productivity on every frontier. However, the continuation of the same in the upcoming season shall hold paramount importance.
Sadly, Celtic do not possess the financial muscle and are likely to be tempted to sell one of their sensational stars, Moussa Dembele, in the summer transfer window. The young Frenchman has already netted 17 goals in 27 appearances for Rodgers’ side and is likely to be tempted away from the Celtic Park in the near future.
Here are 3 players Celtic can target in order to replace Dembele.
If the green and white crops are looking to hand Leigh Griffiths the main role and want to get someone for the future, FC Nordsjaelland’s youngster Ingvarsten can definitely be someone they could have a look at. In Superliga, the 21-year-old poacher has already banged in 14 goals in 25 appearances and has already been touted as the next Filippo Inzaghi.
Fast, technically sound and possessing sheer predatory instincts inside the box, Ingvartsen can brush himself up under the excellent guidance of Rodgers and cater to the striking duties of the Scottish giants whenever he is called upon.
Injuries and iffy form have played an instrumental role in tarnishing Sturridge’s image in the Premier League. The English international might be looking for an exit in the summer transfer window, for he has fallen behind in the pecking order under the reign of Jurgen Klopp.
So far this campaign in the top tier of English football, Sturridge has bagged merely 14 appearances which includes 9 cameos from the bench and has scored just 2 goals and has 1 assist to his name. Rodgers has worked with the 27-year-old in the past and with the calibre the hitman has, he can easily lead the Hoops’ attack.
Onyekuru has been one of the hottest properties to have emerged from the Jupiler League, banging 12 goals in 28 appearances for Eupen. The 19-year-old has publically stated that he wants to ply his trade somewhere else from the upcoming season and thus, Celtic should make a bold move to lure him to the Celtic Park.
The 19-year-old, who is predominantly a winger on either side, can be utilised as the lone striker and can neatly get into Celtic’s attacking setup up front.
