Celtic are not having the best of form despite a few encouraging outcomes in the league in recent weeks. They have claimed a double treble over past two seasons under Brendan Rodgers, but their supremacy seems to be under threat this term following the resurgence of Rangers and a spirited display from Hearts in early months.
Injuries and an underwhelming business work have hindered the Hoops from making steady progress, and the management now must monitor the market for the next couple of months before making reinforcements in the winter window.
The Parkhead side allowed star striker Moussa Dembele to return to his country and join Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyonnais in a £19.7m deadline day transfer. No alternative of the Frenchman was lined up before the window was slammed shut as the gaffer opted to rely on Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths as his centre-forward options.
Edouard, the club-record summer signing from PSG had a decent loan spell last season. But the disappointing run of Leigh Griffith has piled the pressure up on the France youth international and an out-and-out goalscorer should be chased in January when the window reopens to perform transfer business.
Fulham outcast Aboubakar Kamara should be viewed as a quality option who is looking for game-time and has rarely been relied upon by boss Slaviša Jokanović since their promotion to Premier League. The Frenchman has played only 243 minutes of league football, and the addition of Luciano Vietto and Aleksandar Mitrovic has sent Kamra further down the pecking order.
The 23-year-old centre-forward scored a brace against Exeter City in an EFL Cup Second Round fixture a couple of months back but should consider his future if minutes are assured elsewhere.
Kamara is capable of featuring down the wings, and his finishing trait makes him suited for a place in Rodgers’ Celtic side. A loan move should be the best possible deal for all parties involved as it would allow the Hoops to buy some time before making the final call. He might not have earned Jokanović’s faith to flourish in Premier League football, but the prospect of Scottish Premiership must not be turned down considering the challenges it would offer regarding Celtic’s title defence.
The attacker progressed through the youth ranks of AS Monaco and impressed in the lower leagues of French football before completing a move to Craven Cottage last summer. Although he has been tied down on a long-term contract, Fulham should let the player leave in January if the manager does not fancy him in his future plans. Kamara has a bright career road ahead of him but needs regular minutes to justify his talent. A transfer to Celtic makes complete sense, and the champions of Scotland must explore the option of having the Frenchman to replace his compatriot Moussa Dembele in attacking third.
