Some reports on Sunday suggested that Jordan Rhodes might be a transfer target for Celtic. Would he be a good addition for the Hoops?
The Scottish Sun claimed that Neil Lennon is keen to add a striker to his ranks. Sheffield Wednesday talisman Rhodes could be a player who he turns to next month.
Celtic are trying to complete a fourth domestic treble, whilst they are also still in the Europa League.
During the last decade, Rhodes has been a devastating striker at Championship level.
In 282 games in the second tier, he has netted 108 goals across spells with Huddersfield, Blackburn, Middlesbrough, Norwich City and Wednesday.
Rhodes has the attributes to be a hit in Scotland.
He is a lethal finisher, finds the pockets of space well and is also a player who comes alive in the penalty area.
Celtic’s quick tempo style of play would surely make him a hit in Lennon’s team and chances to score should be forthcoming in such a dominant side.
At this stage, it does seem unlikely that Wednesday will allow Rhodes to leave.
The 29-year-old recently fired a stunning hat-trick against Nottingham Forest and with the Owls third in the league, Garry Monk will surely want to keep him around.
In recent weeks his partnership with Steven Fletcher has looked a handful for opposition teams.
Celtic might be forced to look elsewhere but that shouldn’t stop them asking some questions regarding Rhodes.
Rangers added some eyecatching talent from the English leagues during the last 18 months and Rhodes arriving would certainly excite supporters.
At 29, another chance to play in Europe might not come around and Rhodes himself may hold a desire to grasp that opportunity.
The prolific striker would be viewed as a handy signing for Celtic and he could help maintain their stranglehold on Scottish football.
