Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Wolfsberger AC striker Shon Weissman this summer if Odsonne Edouard leaves the club with Premier League sides interested – and Hoops supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Weissman, 24, has been in stunning form for Austrian side Wolfsberger this season – scoring a whopping 29 goals in 30 games. Two of those goals have come in the Europa League, against European giants Roma and Gladbach.
The Telegraph has claimed that amid reported interest from north London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham, that Celtic could look to bring the powerful striker to Glasgow as his replacement. Celtic already boast a plethora of strikers.
Leigh Griffiths has returned to form after a break from football, with the current global health crisis coming at the worst possible time for the Scottish ace. Patryk Klimala, a January signing, and Vakoun Bayo are also options.
But if Edouard leaves, Celtic are likely to want to spend some of the incoming transfer fee on a replacement and Neil Lennon is renowned for signing Israeli players – having signed Beram Kayal, Nir Bitton and Hatem Abd Elhamed.
Celtic supporters have reacted to the reported news that their club could complete a reported deal for striker Weissman – and many are keen to see him signed, even if Edouard remains at the club.
Get him in even if Edouard stays

Get him in anyway we need a solid 3rd striker and Eddie will leave next season anyway so it would give him time to settle

Not a bad return to be fair, Why not bring him in to play with Edouard & Griffiths like we did with Eddy when we had Dembele who we knew would be off sooner rather than later.

His scoring record is incredible but remember we signed Klimala in Jan who needs a chance too?

We’ve got 4 strikers the now plus I doubt eddy is leaving unless obscene amount of money came in , not even gave klimala a chance wrote off after 3 games 👀
