Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy says the Scottish champions are looking at bringing in at least two new signings to the club when the transfer window opens.
Neil Lennon’s right-hand man has revealed they have been weighing up potential targets in recent months and, with the season having been curtailed, they are now planning ahead for next campaign:
“Every year we want to bring a couple of fresh faces in to give us a lift and try and strengthen the areas we think we can improve, and that will be no different this year.”
“It will be more challenging because we don’t know the state of the transfer market yet, we don’t know when the transfer windows will run. But we have spent this time at home looking at potential players who could come in and improve the squad.”
Reports have suggested that those two names could be Reading winger Michael Olise and Hearts left-back Aaron Hickey. Neither would be glamorous signings but the global health crisis means Celtic’s finances have been hit.
However, it is also believed that the Hoops will look to strengthen their squad with loan additions with manager Neil Lennon having already expressed his desire to keep Fraser Forster and Mohamed Elyounoussi for a second season.
Like always, it seems like the club will be taking a conservative, measured approach to the transfer market, with few risks being taken.
