Celtic are one of the teams to keep an eye on in the upcoming January transfer window. The Hoops might be leading the Premiership title race but that does not mean that they have been good. It has felt like Brendan Rodgers' side have never gotten out of second gear in this campaign so far and they seem to struggle whenever the opposition puts up a resolute defence.

There are other factors worrying Celtic fans heading into January as well. One of them is the start of the AFC Asian Cup next month, which could see a number of the club's most important players leaving for their respective national teams.

That could include both their strikers, Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu. So, Celtic are expected to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

They have been linked with a lot of strikers in recent weeks. One name that is starting to look like the favourite to end up at Parkhead though is Bojan Mivoski of Aberdeen. The North Macedonian international arrived at the Pittodrie Stadium in the summer of 2022 and already has 30 goals to his name for the Dons, 18 last season and 12 this time around.

Andy Walker believes that Miovski could fit into this Celtic team. As reported by 67 Hail Hail, he told Go Radio:

"I think he could easily fit into a Celtic team – I think, in general, his game outside of the box. The fact that he scored 18 last season. He already has (12) this time around. He has international experience."

He would not be surprised if Celtic tried to sign him and can see Miovski playing for the Hoops. Walker further added:

"He is a quality player and I think that has been a really good bit of business from Aberdeen. I wouldn’t be surprised if Celtic went to get him. I don’t think they would pay silly money. But I could see him fitting into Celtic’s style of play. I can see him playing for Celtic."

Miovski recently got his 12th goal of the season as Aberdeen got a very important 2-1 win over Hearts. The Dons have been near the bottom of the table for a while and this result will give them some breathing room.

It is believed that it would take Celtic a fee higher than the £4.4 million they had shelled out to sign Scott Brown in 2007 from Hibernian. That remains the record for a transfer between two Scottish clubs.
