International star is pushing for Celtic transfer move

Celtic have already had a very positive January transfer window, bringing in players like Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi, Johnny Kenny and Matt O’Riley. Most fans would have been delighted at the start of the month if told that the Hoops would complete five transfers. Could there potentially be need for more though in order to challenge the Rangers for the Premiership title?

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have brought in Amad on loan from Manchester United in a surprise move. And as a result, Celtic might need to do something in order to get the momentum back on their side ahead of the Glasgow Derby.

One player that they have been linked with in recent times is Ahmed Kendouci, who currently plays for ES Setif and has appeared for the Algerian national team.

And as reported by GiveMeSport, Dean Jones believes that Kendouci is pushing for a move to Celtic as he said:

“I think they should try stepping up their interest because they don’t want this window to end on a bad vibe.

“I believe he’s pushing and is quite keen on the transfer. If they can push forward with that, then I think that it would really give them the exact feeling they want within the camp going into the final stages of the season.”

Should Celtic try to sign Kendouci this month?

Kendouci has without doubt shown a lot of potential till now and is a prospect to keep an eye on. While a versatile player, he is mostly a midfielder though.

Now, at this point of time, it does not make a lot of sense for Celtic to sign another midfielder. Hatate and O’Riley have already impressed since arriving at Parkhead this month. On the other hand, Ideguchi looked solid as well in the time that he played.

Then one cannot forget the likes of Callum McGregor, David Turnbull, Tom Rogic, Nir Bitton, Ismaila Soro and James McCarthy.

When everybody is fit and available, midfield might very well be Celtic’s strongest area on the pitch. Thus, it might not be a good move on their part to bring in another player who plays there mostly. Let’s see what the future holds though.
