Celtic need to sign a striker in the January transfer window. The Hoops have disappointed in front of goal this season. Unless they are successful in taking the lead early, they seem to struggle to get past the opposition' s defence and often seem to run out of ideas. Kyogo has struggled to match the heights from last season, as Ange Postecoglou's departure and the change in style under the management of Brendan Rodgers appears to have had an effect on his form.

Oh Hyeon-gyu has shown flashes of quality but he has been inconsistent for the most part. So, the Hoops need a third striker.

On top of that, there is the upcoming AFC Asian Cup. It is very possible that both Kyogo and Oh could be called up by their respective national teams and miss a significant number of games as a result. Thus, Celtic need to add to their ranks up top quickly in January.

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Celtic are weighing up a January move for Bojan Miovski. But Aberdeen will want the highest-ever fee between two Scottish clubs. The Dons value the striker at more than the £4.4 million transfer fee the Hoops signed Scott Brown for in 2007.

Of course, it is always more difficult to get deals done in January. More often than not, clubs are not eager to part ways with key players in the middle of the season. That raises the transfer value and often leads to talks dragging on.

Of course, someone like Miovski could be an excellent addition to this Celtic side. He has been delivering the goods for the Dons for a while.

Even though Aberdeen are not having a good season and are sitting 10th in the league, Miovski has found the back of the net consistently. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 11 goals and provided 3 assists in 23 appearances in this campaign so far.
