Celtic players are always linked with moves to the Premier League. That is nothing new and has become the norm for those who have shined at Parkhead. More often than not, the Hoops are unable to prevent their best performers from moving down south. It is an even bigger problem, if the transfer takes place in the middle of the season, because then it is even harder to replace them.
One Celtic player who is not having the best season right now is Kyogo Furuhashi. The Japanese forward had been the face of the club during the Ange Postecoglou era but has struggled to rediscover that form under the management of Brendan Rodgers.
Kyogo had made a steady start to the season and the hope was that he would improve as he adjusted to Rodgers' system. On the contrary, the Japanese forward's form has gone south.
Over his last 10 appearances for Celtic, Kyogo has scored just one goal. That is nowhere near his best. He scored 34 goals across all competitions last season. And unsurprisingly, rumours have cropped up about a potential exit even though he signed a long-term contract extension merely months ago.
Brentford eyeing January move for Celtic superstar
It looks like there is interest in the Japanese international's signature. As reported by TEAMtalk, Kyogo is on Brentford’s wishlist to replace Ivan Toney should the striker leave in the January transfer window.
Toney has been linked with some of the top clubs in England recently, like Arsenal and Chelsea. So, it remains to be seen what the future holds for him at Brentford.
On the other hand, Celtic fans will be hoping for Kyogo to rediscover his best form as soon as possible. It was not too long ago that he was being considered the club's best player since Henrik Larsson. But things have not worked out for him since Rodgers' arrival.
