Journalist Craig Finn has backed Celtic to sign youngster Christopher Scott in the summer transfer window after revealing the club has been looking at him ‘for some time’.
The Hoops look back to their dominant selves under new boss Ange Postecoglou as they took back the Scottish Premier League from their bitter rivals Rangers, winning their 52nd title as well as cementing themselves in Champion League football next season.
AS a result of their return to glory they are looking to continue to build around their Australian manager who has already bought in the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers., Jota, Reo Hatate, Kyogo Furuhashi, and Joe Hart to name a few, all contributing significantly to their title-winning season.
Their latest link revolves around Bayern Munich’s 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Scott, who impressed for their second team in the Regionalliga Bayern this season. One person who was excited about that possible transfer was Finn, who took to Twitter to express his thoughts.
He wrote, “I know Celtic have been keen on the player for some time. If it’s as far down the line as @Ghanasoccernet say — Ange must be happy with what he’s saw”.
TIF Thoughts on Scott to Celtic…
Celtic will want to continue their great form under Postecoglou and in order to compete in both the SPL and the Champions League, they will need to bring faces in to bolster their squad and maybe even make a name for themselves during that time.
Will Scott become a starter for Celtic?
Signing Scott could be one of these signings, he has impressed this season with seven goals and six assists in his 24 appearances for Bayern II in the league this season at a number of positions. He can be versatile as he has played everywhere across the front line, mostly in the attacking midfield position but also on the left and right-wing and even a bit further back in central midfield.
This kind of versatility can be so important for any team but especially for a side who is going to be playing a lot of games like Celtic, who will want to win the SPL again as well as make a run on the European scene. Combine this with his current Tranfermarkt value of just £1.08 million and it is a no-brainer for the Hoops ahead of next season.
