Celtic have already signed nine players since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as the manager of the club, seven on a permanent basis and two on loan. Despite that, it does feel like there are some holes in the current squad which have not been filled. And hopefully, they will concentrate on those positions in the upcoming transfer windows.
One area where they do seem a bit short right now is on the wings. A large part of that is due to both Daizen Maeda and Liel Abada being out of action for the foreseeable future. Both of them are constantly linked with moves away too.
On the other hand, Yang Hyun-jun has been inconsistent since arriving in the summer. He has potential but does not feel like someone ready to be a starter yet. He might have to fulfil that role in the absence of other options though.
Luis Palma is the only in-form Celtic winger, who is fit right now. James Forrest is a squad option at this stage of his career and Mikey Johnston has barely played this season. Could all of this lead to the club looking at strengthening on the flanks?
Celtic reportedly in the running to bring back former player
Jota is widely expected to leave Al-Ittihad in January. It is hard to believe that he was signed by the club in the summer for a £25 million transfer package and he has barely featured since then. Let’s see where he ends up next.
Of course, the idea of a reunion with Ange Postecoglou would be attractive for the Portuguese winger. But then, Celtic are really the only club he has succeeded at as a senior level player.
