The pandemic caused by the COVID-19 outbreak has not only stopped football indefinitely but also led to mayhem in Scotland over the conclusion of the current campaign. There’s a massive rift going on between Celtic and Rangers following SPFL’s vote and season-ending proposal and their incompetency in dealing with the situation has already been documented by us to keep track of the same.
But the show must go on behind the scenes in terms of transfer activities and Celtic, known for their esteemed youth academy, are rivalling the English hotshots for an array of promising teenage prospects. The Hoops have been after Middlesbrough’s 16-year-old prodigy Calum Kavanagh (along with Chelsea and Arsenal as reported by the Herald.ie last week) and according to The Scottish Sun, are now chasing the signing of James Graham of Ross County.
Career Highlights So Far
The 15-year-old striker is also being tracked by Manchester United and Wolves following a trial last October with Liverpool. He spent a couple of weeks in Merseyside and scored a brace against Notts County while featuring as a trialist for the U16s. Later he appeared for the Reds’ U17s against Sheffield United and his persistent display for the Staggies’ U16s and U18s grabbed the attention of the Red Devils.
He was impressive on a brief stint at Manchester before the suspension of the game, and the English giants are now keen on tying him down on permanent terms once the situation down south improves. Wolves, meanwhile, have joined the chase too as they are desperate to enhance the development squad with promising British as well as European talents. They are an emerging Premier League force with genuine ambitions and have already enriched their academy ranks with Enzo Loiodice, Luke Matheson and Leo Campana during the January window.
Why A Move To Celtic Should Be Preferred By The Teenager
The Isle of Lewis-born teenager is tipped to make it big in due time. Celtic, hailed for providing a quicker pathway to their young guns, have roped in the likes of Luca Connell, Jonathan Afolabi, Jeremie Frimpong and Armstrong Okoflex from England in recent times under the noses of football’s heavyweights.
Although Graham should represent the Celtic Colts initially, his performance in the City of Glasgow Cup would be vital in figuring out how quickly he could stake a claim in Neil Lennon’s plan. Karamoko Dembele made it to the Hoops’ senior side at the age of 16, and it is to be seen now how the things shape up for the highly-rated Scotsman if a move to Parkhead materialises in the forthcoming future.
