Celtic fans will be hoping for the club to strengthen in the transfer market but Neil Lennon’s admission seems like bad news.
It’s an exciting time for the players and the fans, the push for 10IAR is starting to creep on us and after everything that has happened in these last couple of months it is great to have an event to look forward to again. Of course, there are often setbacks in all walks of life and Neil Lennon has given us an update on the transfer window so far. Instead of a powder keg igniting, the transfer window has been fizzing quietly.
The Bhoys have Edouard up front and potentially Griffiths leading the attack, they have shown to be great partners in the past. The real question is: what lies behind the dynamic duo? Lennon gives a discouraging answer to this question, per BBC Sport. Lennon said there was “nothing at the minute” regarding transfer activity but explained:
“I’m hoping to add to the squad, there’s no question of that. Sometimes these things take a bit of time.”
The pieces of Celtic are definitely adrift and the side has positions in need of filling sooner, rather than later. The club’s main goalkeeping spot has not been given to anyone as of yet; Forster is still in a contract with Southampton and there is still time to continue to angle for his signing, there is also ongoing talks to sign Greek keeper Vasilios Barkas.
Elyounoussi is out on loan from Southampton again, much to the fans’s delight, but he is alone on the left wing. Johnny Hayes has already left and Mikey Johnston is out with an injury. The vacuum that has opened along the left wing needs to be filled to compliment the Norwegian talent but there is hardly any whispers of wingers coming down the pipe.
It is always better to bring in players early instead of waiting till the last possible minute. That gives them time to settle in with their new surroundings. But it looks like that’s not how Celtic
We’re sure everything will turn out alright, Neil Lennon often takes risks on players that he is really passionate about having on the team. If not, the friendly against Hibernian which will feature second team will surely reveal a number of faces ready to step up and make history.
