It is no secret that Celtic are looking for new players going into the January transfer window. The Hoops' wish list will undoubtedly include a new striker. In addition to more competition in their forward department, the club might need someone to lead the line with the AFC Asian Cup starting from next month.

For a while now, Celtic have been creating chances in front of goal but haven’t been as clinical as they could and should be. Another striker with a proven goal-scoring record is a must. On top of that, Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda and Hyeon-gyu Oh could all possibly be involved in the AFC Asian Cup.

At Aberdeen, Bojan Miovski is showing that even with limited chances he is able to find the back of the net regularly. The 24-year-old forward has scored 12 goals already this season for the Dons. That’s quite impressive while playing for a team that has been struggling for consistency this season.

Miovski is settled in Scotland, playing well for the Dons and being linked with a move to Celtic ahead of the January transfer window. Amidst all this, the comments of Aberdeen chief executive Alan Burrows are particularly interesting.

As reported by the Daily Record, Burrows said when asked at the club AGM about the prospect of Miovski leaving next month:

"Bojan has demonstrated this season and last season he is a striker of supreme quality and I've no doubt is going to have a fantastic career at the very top level. I can't give any assurances because I don't know what any other club is going to do."

He did claim though that the club were not actively seeking to transfer Miovski going into the January transfer window. And that they were in no rush to part ways with him.

There’s plenty in Burrow’s comments to indicate that Miovski may remain at Aberdeen for a while longer. But there are also signs to suggest that if the right offer is made then a transfer might be very possible.

Brendan Rodgers has been clear that the club need more quality. Could Miovski be the perfect fit? The Hoops could shell out bigger transfer fees for other forwards who may or may not adapt to the Premiership. The North Macedonian international has already proven himself in Scotland, having scored 30 goals for Aberdeen since arriving in the summer of 2022.
