Celtic have made some sensational additions to their squad over the course of the previous two transfer windows. Now, most of the headlines have been grabbed by the likes of Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota, and understandably so. But the club deserve a lot of credit for signing difference makers all over the pitch and we have seen it have an impact on their performances.
For example, defence was a weakness for Celtic last season. But this time around, the club have improved a lot in this aspect of their game.
One player who has stood out for his performances at the back is Cameron Carter-Vickers, who is on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur at the moment but the Hoops do have an option to buy included in the deal.
Celtic have been told that if they can sign Carter-Vickers for a transfer fee around £8 million then they could potentially get double that in a future move to England. As reported by the Daily Record, Ramon Vega said:
“If they can get around that £8million mark, there is no doubt they should take the player and make the signing. If they qualify for the Champions League, he is a player who needs to be there.
“Don’t forget, he isn’t old. He is quite young and, if he really performs well, he could be valued at double that amount in going back to England in four or five years.”
Should Celtic sign Carter-Vickers in the summer?
There have been some positive rumours coming out regarding the Carter-Vickers to Celtic saga in recent weeks.
It is believed that the player’s camp feel that Celtic is the right place for him to develop as a player. Also, there is clearly interest on the part of the Hoops to make a deal happen.
There have been suggestions that it could take an initial transfer fee around £6 million to sign Carter-Vickers from Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent basis although with add-ons, it could rise up to a figure around £10 million. That would make him the most expensive signing in the history of Celtic.
But considering how well he has done since arriving at Parkhead and how important he has become to this team, it is certainly a move that the club must try their best to make happen.
