True, depends on if Rodgers has 3 at the back for some (or all) games next season. I can see us signing him then loaning him out tbh, I reckon it'll be too good an opportunity for us to pass up with Vardy getting on.

 

We've needed a class right winger for 2 years now:nono:

If we sign him (I'd be tempted) then I can see Iheanacho being moved on which would be a shame given his renaissance

My issue is Nacho is never going to be able to play as a lone striker, this guy look quicker and more mobile, and more of a Vardy replacement.

 

I just don't see a matched day squad having Vardy, Nacho and this guy in, so if he come I can see Nacho moving on.

Nacho is a tough one because he has improved a bit this season. 

I think if the right offer came in for him and we used the money to get Edouard, Id sell. 

Same applies to Gray (although he's be given more opportunities)

Don't want him if it means selling Iheanacho. To be honest I wouldn't really want him anyway, first comes RW and CB.

 

In all fairness, we probably need so much in the squad right now that focusing on two positions alone isn't enough. 

 

If we don't plan for Vardy's replacement now we literally never will.

Better idea is to keep Iheanacho, and swap Slimani for Edouard.

 

I'm trying to guess whether this comment will bring @henrik_62 into the thread, or cure him of this place forever.

Iheanacho could play as a lone striker for us if we had two wingers getting 10+ goals a season. His link up play would benefit other attackers and spread the goals around + he’s a very good finisher himself.

We joke but he'd probably lead the line pretty well for Celtic. 

 

I don't think Henrik_62 is in denial enough to think Celtic and the SPL play at a higher level than Monaco or Porto.

 

His age isn't ideal but he loves confrontation and doesn't struggle with confidence under pressure where as Iheanacho doesn't like either of those things.

DONT GO NACHO

 

As well tho, if we want to keep the best holding midfielder in the world here for years to come, why sell his best mate?

I don't follow the players on social media enough to know, but are they best mates, or are you just saying that because they are the same same nationality?

 

I know enough from posts on here though that Chilwell and Maddison live in each others pockets, but that hasn't stop very strong rumours that Chilwell wants to leave his best mate and run off to London. I'm not sure footballers think to much about best mates in the team. They'll stay in touch and they get enough time off to see each other.

His stats are great but he's in a shite league. There's only 2 years left on his contract so I doubt Celtic would be able to command that for him. Double swoop for him and Ajer?

 

Definitely wouldn't sell Iheanacho just yet - there's plenty of dead weight we need to get rid of that could raise enough cash. Sell Slimani and Silva to the idiots who bought Musa. 

He's signed a new deal but it's not been announced yet, is apparently going to coincide with the new Adidas kit launch.

 

More than happy for you guys to take Ajer in all honesty!

I get the SPL is a duff league arguement , but his record shows 11 goals in 26 european appearances. not to shabby. 

His record for France U21's is ridiculous also, I can't recall the exact stats but it's taken him something like less than 10 games to become something like the third highest scorer for their U21's in history.

No, Nacho and Ndidi are actually good friends - they post videos with each other on social media often. 
 

I don’t know to be fair if it makes much difference re transfers, but I’m sure they enjoy playing with their mates.

Slimani is a good player. Celtic would do well to swap him for Edouard :thumbup:

I doubt Celtic could afford 25% of Slim’s weekly wedge (unfortunately).

Don’t they part share a box too? SK4 corner?

Watch the odd scottish prem game when its on Sky. Always been impressed with this guy when Celtic have played. Pace, power and can finish. When BR came down last season this is a transfer I was hoping we'd go in for, though I have a sneaky suspicion our chance to sign him was last summer.

With CL football a distinct possibility, surely this sunmer is our best chance. Prior to that we were never going to bring in a striker of his calibre and give him enough football.
