Should Celtic be on the lookout for new useful players this summer, there are quite a few great options in Scotland. There is a bit of rebuilding that needs to be done at the end of the season. Celtic fans hope that some of the quality players from abroad would be part of the selection. It would depend on the person in the manager’s seat when its time to make serious decisions regarding the upcoming season.
The next season starts around July, and several Scottish players could be part of
A price tag of £10 is placed on Scott McKenna by Aberdeen, and up to now the 22-year-old player already rejected the bids from Aston Villa as well as Celtic. Still, a deal could be possible in future. According to speculation, it is almost a done deal that Benkoviic will re-join Leicester.
Still, Celtic needs a strong centre-back to join Kristoffer Ajer, and McKenna is the player that can handle the pressure and distribute the ball. He perfectly fits the mould; he is fast, high in the air and stable. One thing is for sure, and that is that he won’t be available at a low price. The Celtics will do whatever is needed to add him to the team.
Since January there are lots of talks about Jake Hastie, although the real secret weapon is no other than David Turnbull. The U21 of Scotland recently got his 11th goal of the season. This he could add to his five awards as the player of the season. Currently, his solid move through the ranks resulted in him signing a contract until 2021 with Fir Park. The great thing about Turnbull is that he will get better, stronger and an even more robust player, many predict he would be talented like Stuart Armstrong or Ryan Christie, which makes him perfect for Celtic.
Maybe not as a safe bet as some of the other, John Souttar is still well worth considering. Craig Levein sees him as Scotland’s best centre-back. Not everyone agrees, although he is talented, and his ball distribution is nothing short of the first rate. Souttar is a natural and even though he still needs work a bit on his defence, he is a top class that can most certainly improve as part of Celtic. There is also a lot of talks about who they’d be stealing, Scott Alan or Scott Brown.
