Celtic Readying A Move For This Promising Arsenal Striker: Right Choice By Rodgers?

Celtic have started their title defence in the Scottish Premiership this season with wins in their first three matches, scoring seven goals in the process while conceding only one, indicating that the Hoops are carrying their good form from the last season into this term as well.

However, the man in charge at the Celtic Park, Brendan Rodgers, is looking forward to bring in some players to strengthen his side for the new season and one name which is right on the top of his target list is the Arsenal youngster Chuba Akpom, who spent the last season on loan at, the then Championship side, Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 21-year-old has been one of the most talented players in the ranks for the Gunners but has spent a chunk of his career so far on loan with an array of clubs in the form of Brighton, Coventry City, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Brentford throughout the last few seasons. He was one of the prime factors for the Seagulls in the last season to hand them the first ever promotion to the Premier League this term.

The Celtic attack is already showing their mettle in the new season and have been able to score seven goals already against their opponents so far. However, Rodgers is looking to bring in someone like Akpom to add to his strike force for the season, as his side will have to face some of the best teams in the Champions League in the new term and get positive results under their belt.

The 21-year-old striker is known for his pace and prowess on the pitch and might use his attributes to cement his place with the Scottish Premiership champions in the next season, in case he agrees to make a move out of the Emirates Stadium in the new season. Looking at the current scenario though, it seems that it will be the right option for the England international to join another club for his involvement in first team action on a regular basis.

The English forward has attracted a lot of attention from a number of clubs from the Premier League as well as the Championship, along with the Scottish champions showing fresh interest to bag the player for the new season. He can be used both in a primary attacking role as well as in a withdrawn role to help the team revamp their attacking options.
