With Celtic’s Scottish dominance under acute threat from Steven Gerrard’s blazing hot Rangers, a strong showing in the January transfer window is the need of the hour.
After beating Rangers 1-0 in the Scottish League Cup final on 8th December, Celtic must be confident about reatining the League title as well. However, strengthening the squad is something they will definitely look into.
In this article, we will have a look at some of the players Celtic could sign in January transfer window.
Here are the 8 players Celtic could sign in January transfer window –
8. Curtis Jones:
The Liverpool academy product has been a sort of revelation this season. His ability to operate in a couple of positions has impressed manager Klopp who is desperate to give the young lad some game time. Jones has enjoyed an impressive season, captaining the U23s and making his first-team debut.
He also starred in a game against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, holding his nerve to score the winning penalty. But Jones might be loaned out in January.
Considering Celtic’s need for an ambitious midfielder who could inject energy and pace to the team, Jones could be an ideal candidate.
7. Yohan Boli:
Celtic targeted Bayo last January and perhaps his compatriot Yohan Boli should also be in consideration for the Parkhead side.
The 25-year-old turned heads last season with 12 goals for St Truiden and has continued that consistent form even this year.
Boli is a free agent in the summer and Celtic could get him on the cheap come January.
6. Lawrence Shankland:
Lawrence Shankland plays as a striker for Dundee United of the Scottish Championship and the Scotland national team.
The Dundee striker has been a hot topic lately, with multiple teams trying to gain his signature for his services. Rangers are also in on Shankland, so if anything, by signing Shankland, it keeps Rangers from scooping him up.
Shankland can help provide depth at the striker position, and has proven he can be a key play maker during his time with Dundee.
5. Ghislain Konan:
Ghislain N’Clomande Konan is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays for Stade de Reims as a left-back. Konan has been one of Europe’s hottest properties in the left back position.
With Celtic losing Tierney to Arsenal in the summer window, Konan can be the perfect replacement for exceptionally talented Scotsman.
