Stephen McGinn believes that before the January transfer window closes, Brendan Rodgers still needs to sign a striker for Celtic.
Nicolas Kuhn, a winger for Celtic who signed from Rapid Vienna this month, has already strengthened the team’s offensive lineup. Kuhn was present during Sunday’s Scottish Cup victory over Buckie Thistle, which Celtic won 5-0.
However, Lawrence Shankland’s name is still being mentioned, and according to Stephen McGinn on Go Radio, he believes joining Celtic will be the “final step” in his career.
It should come as no surprise that the 28-year-old is desired because he is having the best football season of his career at Tynecastle.
He has ripped it up at Hearts, donning the captain’s armband and scoring 18 goals in all competitions, including 13 from 21 Premiership games.
Even though Kyogo Furuhashi proved once more on Derby Day that he is the unquestioned monarch, there are still unanswered questions surrounding the Japan star.
For this reason, Stephen McGinn supported Lawrence Shankland’s plan to relocate to Parkhead.
Will Celtic sign a striker in January?
McGinn stated, “I don’t see why not (Celtic go in for Shankland).” “Celtic requires another forward.”
Yogo cemented his position as the star of the most recent Rangers game. What they most likely lack, though, is that Oh simply has Shankland’s knack of nicking the goal when he enters the game with roughly 20 minutes remaining and you are pressing for a goal. Therefore, I’m convinced that he is mentioned.
In terms of talent, Lawrence Shankland had reached the lowest point of his career. During his second time at St Mirren, he had dropped out of the team. Not the most enjoyable time at Morton. descends to the Scottish football league’s third division, Ayr, and effectively reignites the team.
And now that he is a Scottish international and has been connected to Celtic, it’s most likely his final professional move. Everyone is waiting for him to produce that.
Lawrence Shankland transfer fee and level
First and foremost, the club won’t just throw money around like confetti even though there is money in the bank.
It should be mentioned that Hearts have a strong possibility of placing third this season if Shankland is included in their starting lineup.
If he departs, you can definitely rule it out!
In light of this, Hearts will want a high price for the player. Would Celtic be prepared to spend a fortune on a player such as Shankland?
He lacks sell-on value, isn’t much better than Kyogo, and many doubt his ability to succeed in the Champions League.
Therefore, it wouldn’t be shocking if the majority of the fan base rejected this type of transfer.
