A whole host of Celtic fans are delighted on Twitter to see new links surface regarding Daizen Maeda.
Shopping in the Asian market over the summer benefitted Celtic hugely, as the signing of Kyogo Furuhashi has proved to be a masterstroke given how well he’s performed, with 13 goals in just 21 appearances across all competitions.
Given Ange Postecoglou’s previous experiences managing in the Japanese top flight, he now appears keen to revisit that market in January, as Scott Burns has reported that the manager wants to sign Maeda, claiming they will have to shell out £3m on the striker.
Will Celtic win the league?
A lot of Celtic fans are very happy on Twitter with these links to Maeda.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“Celtic sign him up but first gimme jotaaaaa”
“This would be a good signing having worked with ange before and although an unsuccessful spell a spell in Europe”
“Maeda is a class player who will fit into our system perfectly. Apparently a few other European teams are after him as well..come on Celtic get this over the line!”
“If he can play with even half the passion and intensity of Kyogo imagine what a player that would be coming off the bench,just wow!!!”
“Has to be a priority simply for the luxury of not relying on Mikey Johnston and Ajeti to come off the bench”
“He looks a player, fast, can finish, he would be a brilliant addition to the team. I hope he signs for sure”
It’s no surprise why Celtic are reportedly looking to sign Maeda as he found the net 22 times in 39 appearances for Yokohama F Marinos, and coupled with the fact that the Hoops only have two recognised strikers at the minute, they could do with more bodies in January.
