Celtic move for Angus Gunn would be perfect for club and player

The Manchester City youngster has been in fine form during a loan spell at Manchester City.

Celtic are being linked with a move for Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn this summer.

The Sun report that both Celtic and Stoke City are interested in signing the young stopper.

Gunn, son of legendary Norwich City goalkeeper Bryan Gunn, has been forging his own reputation at Carrow road this season.

The 22-year-old is wanted on loan by Celtic for next season, with a view to a potential permanent move.

Considering Gunn has to find his way past Ederson to be City’s number one, a summer exit certainly seems likely.

For Gunn and for Celtic this would be a tremendous move, as Rodgers starts planning for life after Craig Gordon. The Scotland international is currently out of action with an injury.

Scott Bain arrived on loan from Dundee whilst Dorus de Vries is also present, but neither player is as talented as the City man.

Celtic, of course, have a good working relationship with City.

The likes of Jason Denayer and Patrick Roberts have previously joined the club on loan from the Etihad and Gunn would simply be following in their footsteps.

For the young stopper, it would represent an opportunity to play regular football at a high level. Not only would he be featuring in the Scottish top-flight, but also the Champions League.

Gunn is a young keeper with absolute bags of potential. But, to be honest, a future career at City just does not look plausible for the stopper.

A move to Celtic could easily become permanent, leaving Gunn potentially playing for one of the most historic clubs in Europe.

If Celtic come calling this summer, which they should do, Gunn must be on his way to Parkhead.
