If a report from the Daily Record is believed to be true, Celtic are assessing the option of roping in Cameron Carter-Vickers to resolve their defensive conundrum. As revealed by the outlet, a ‘well-placed source‘ has highlighted the Hoops as well as Bournemouth’s interest in the Tottenham Hotspur defender.
The USMNT international progressed through the academy ranks of Spurs before making his senior debut against Gillingham in a League Cup fixture. However, he has spent his time out on loan ever since in the Championship and is yet to make a Premier League appearance with just a year left in his Tottenham contract.
Carter-Vickers, 23, spent the 2020-21 season with the Cherries and featured 26 times across competitions. His physicality, ability to hold the ball under pressure and passing excellence earned him a starting role despite a slow start to life at the south coast. Now they want him back at the Vitality Stadium in their attempt to reclaim a top-flight status under Scott Parker.
Why Celtic Should Rope in Carter-Vickers
Celtic, meanwhile, are undergoing a process of transition amid a potential mass exodus. The crisis at the back is severe as they are destined to lose Kristoffer Ajer. The Norwegian has rejected a new contract and is keen on experiencing a fresh challenge elsewhere. Christopher Jullien is still recovering from a severe knee injury, whereas Shane Duffy has been sent back to Brighton & Hove Albion following a dreadful loan stint.
Although the emergence of Stephen Welsh has been a blessing in disguise, the Hoops still require significant reinforcement in the heart of the backline. They are closing in on Carl Starlet from Rubin Kazan, but Ange Postecoglou must pursue another central defensive option to restore depth as well as quality ahead of yet another busy campaign.
While they have tied down Osaze Urhoghide and Liam Shaw from Sheffield Wednesday, the young pair might struggle initially to attune to the aggression and demands of Scottish football. Urhoghide is a promising centre-half capable of featuring across the defensive third and the 21-year-old should be deployed sporadically, particularly down the full-back slot.
The Bhoys, nevertheless, must strengthen themselves across the pitch before locking horns with Midtjylland in the upcoming Champions League qualifier. The high-profile summer exits should help them have enough funds to reinvest in the squad and it is to be seen now how aggressively they chase their transfer targets in the due course of time.
