Celtic’s Transfer Wishlist: Striker, Midfielder, and Winger Targets Revealed

Celtic targets striker, midfielder, and winger in January window amidst Asian Cup player losses.

In an exclusive report from Football Insider, it has been revealed that Celtic is actively seeking reinforcements in the January transfer window, targeting a striker, central midfielder, and left winger. The move comes as Brendan Rodgers faces the prospect of losing key players Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu to the Asian Cup in the new year.

Rodgers, prioritizing the need for a centre-forward, aims to bolster the squad’s attacking options during the upcoming transfer window. Additionally, sources indicate his desire to inject more goal-scoring prowess into the midfield, emphasizing the pursuit of a prolific central midfielder. With a relatively thin squad, Celtic is expected to be active in the winter market, aiming to secure acquisitions in these key positions.

While a new long-term goalkeeper is a consideration, it is not deemed a priority in the January window, with Joe Hart’s contract set to expire in the summer. Despite making a profit in the summer, the Hoops, led by Rodgers, are gearing up for another venture into the transfer market this winter, seeking to enhance their squad depth.

Intriguingly, sources have disclosed that West Ham from the Premier League is closely monitoring Celtic’s star midfielder, Matt O’Riley. However, recent reports suggest that Celtic is resolute in retaining O’Riley and has no intention of selling him in January, despite interest from multiple top-flight English clubs.

Celtic’s recent 3-0 away win against Dundee on Boxing Day solidified their position at the summit of the Scottish top flight. As they gear up for a crucial home clash against rivals Rangers on Saturday (30 December), the club’s transfer ambitions will undoubtedly be in the spotlight as they strive to maintain their lead in the league.
