Celtic should avoid signing Patrick Twumasi and give Marian Shved a chance instead

The 21-year-old Ukranian was in prolific form last season.

Celtic are wanting to bolster their squad with a move for Alaves forward Patrick Twumasi, according to Football Ghana.

The Hoops’ boss Neil Lennon is keen to add to their forward options during the summer.

Celtic have seen Oliver Burke and Tim Weah return to West Brom and PSG respectively and reinforcements are required in the final third.

Lennon should perhaps look closer to home, however, rather than pursue Twumasi.

The 25-year-old failed to find the net in 13 games last season and his arrival would represent too much of a risk.


Marian Shved will return to the Celtic ranks next season, following a loan spell with Ukranian outfit Karpaty Lviv.

During his temporary stint away from Parkhead he netted 15 goals and created four assists.

The 21-year-old can play on the wing or through the middle and has the potential to really thrive in Scotland.

Celtic would have to pay a fee, probably millions to land Twumasi and although his goalscoring record was impressive with FC Astana, he just isn’t worth the risk.

Shved netted twice against Dynamo Kyiv and once against Shakhtar last season, proving a man for the big occasion.

Lennon would be much wiser handing the mantle of scoring goals to Shved, rather than pursuing a potentially inept Twumasi.
