Celtic were expected to sign a striker in the January transfer window, which they did, but only on a temporary basis. Adam Idah was brought in on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season and to be honest, he has done a pretty decent job so far, even scoring a fantastic goal in the Glasgow Derby. The Hoops do not have an option to sign him permanently though, which makes things difficult for them and the 23-year-old's future at Parkhead uncertain.

On the other hand, Oh Hyeon-gyu has barely featured in recent times. Since the winter break, he has only made one appearance in the league, as a substitute against Kilmarnock.

So, Celtic might need to make a decision on Oh's future in the summer. His development has not gone as expected and it might be time to part ways with the South Korean international or send him out on loan to a club where he can improve his game.

All things considered, Celtic might be on the lookout for a striker or two in the summer. And there might be a good opportunity to sign a Scotland international on a free transfer.

Celtic should sign Southampton's in-form striker for free

Che Adams has been a player in form for Southampton. Since last Christmas, he has scored 10 goals and provided 3 assists for the Championship club.

Adams' current deal runs out next summer. Thus, he could be available as a free agent a couple of months later and Celtic should consider trying to sign the Scotland international.

Of course, it won't be easy to sign him as other teams are believed to be interested as well. As reported by TEAMtalk, Wolves and Leeds United are eyeing up a move for Adams on a free transfer this summer.

It is also possible that Adams could end up signing an extension with Southampton. He has been at the club since 2019 and made almost 200 appearances for them. They are also in contention to get promoted to the Premier League and are currently sitting in the play-off spots.
