Was diving around lush green grass not so long ago but my keyboard is all I have now. An avid observer of detail in sports with a passion to make myself heard. Can find me playing on a field if not in front of my screen.

Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic are closely followed by Rangers in their pursuit of yet another league title but the former Liverpool manager seems comfortable, trying to find some consistency late in the season. They will look to end the campaign on a high note but will know that they need a few addition come summer, to be able to compete with the best next season.

This has seen Celtic linked with a number of star players for a move at the end of the season and the latest name extensively linked with a move to Glasgow is Spanish star, Borja Iglesias.

Currently on loan at Real Zaragoza in the Spanish Segunda Division, the 25-year old joined Celta Vigo from Villarreal back in 2013 but has not been able to cement his place in the first team at Baladios. He has found decent form with Zaragoza, picking up 12 goals and four assists in 26 appearances in the Spanish second tier.

He was also wanted by Barcelona, for their B team but at 25, has not shown enough promise to be scouted by the top clubs in Europe. However, his form for Natxo Gonzalez’s men is now attracting interests from the likes of Swansea City along with Celtic, for a move in the summer.

It is reported that his load deal with Zaragoza does not have an option to buy, pushing him up for sale in the summer, but is he the right man for Celtic?

A target man who loves to spend his time inside the opposition box, Iglesias is a smart footballer, whose positioning and ability to find the back of the net from different angles and ranges makes him a dangerous player. He is comfortable in dribbling past player but is at his best when attacking crosses into the box.

He has got the better of even the best defenders in Segunda and is a seriously tough man to mark. His strength and hold up play are tailor-made for the English game and he can easily add more goals to this current Celtic side.

The Celts are expected to lose Moussa Dembele, their prime source of goals, come the summer and need a top class striker to replace his creativity in front of goal. Odsonne Edouard came in with loads of expectation but is yet to deliver, pushing Celtic into the market in search of a ready-made striker.

There are many names that will excite the Celtic fans more than Iglesias but the 25-year old is an experienced campaigner and if Rodgers sees him as the right man for his side, he should definitely be given a shot. But is the right man for the Scottish giants?
