The Japanese international had never played outside of his native country before moving to Celtic in the summer when he became Ange Postecoglou’s most expensive signing of the transfer window – and it’s safe to say he’s become an instant hit, having scored eight goals in a Hoops shirt already, including a hat-trick against Dundee.
Are you worried by Celtic's start to the season?
Now though, following reports in Calciomercato, the striker is being linked with a move to Southampton, with the Premier League club having ‘set their sights’ on the forward – and he would not be the first Celtic player to leave for the Saints, as he’d follow in the footsteps of Victor Wanyama, Virgil van Dijk and Stuart Armstrong.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“How about no”
“Do me a favour”
“Genuinely Hope that club go bust”
“Why have a scout when ye can let another club do the work then just buy the players aff the seems tae be wits gone on here, if Kyogo gets sold before 2023 am finished way this club”
“You are kidding me”
“Not even been here one season man so shameless”
From the perspective of Furuhashi, he may look at the players such as Van Dijk and Wanyama and how they have gone on to have successful careers in the Premier League at clubs such as Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, so he may be thinking about his long-term future if he can join a club in the English top flight after just a few months in the SPFL.
