This tweet caught the attention of many Celtic fans and they made their positive opinions known about it.

Elyounoussi surely

Elyounoussi and Forster joined the Hoops on loan from Southampton in the summer of 2019.

Forster has been a regular between the sticks, playing 39 games in all competitions, with 28 of them coming in the Premiership (via Transfermarkt).

However, Elyounoussi has played just 20 games in all competitions. He has scored seven goals, while assisting six times so far (via Transfermarkt).

What do we think?

Celtic fans seem pleased by the possibility of signing the players permanently from Southampton. Considering how Forster has been a regular and Elyounoussi has directly contributed to 13 goals already, they could be valuable signings for the Hoops.
