Celtic need to keep an eye on red-hot Munas Dabbur

Celtic should test the waters over FC Salzburg striker, Munas Dabbur.

The star recently starred against Celtic in the Europa League for the Austrian outft, scoring two goals to condemn Brendan Rodgers to his first defeat in the competition.

Dabbur was a total handful against the Bhoys at the Red Bull Arena last week.

He really made life difficult for Dedryck Boyata and Jack Hendry, and continued his fine start to the season.

Following the brace, it means Dabbur has now notched 14 goals already this season.

And he was at it again on Thursday night as he scored for Israel against Scotland in Haifa.

 

Dabbur again proved a menace for Scottish opposition. He may not have got on the scoresheet, but he was a handful all night.

Celtic should keep tabs following Dembele sale

Celtic should monitor Dabbur from now until the end of the season.

He looks very capable in front of goal, and Celtic could do with another striker following the last-minute sale of Moussa Dembele to Lyon.

Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard are the only two strikers available to Rodgers at the moment, and neither has truly hit the ground running yet.

Contrastingly, the pair were poor against Salzburg, as Dabbur shone for the hosts.

Dabbur would likely not come cheap – he’s under contract with the Austrian side until 2021.

That gives Salzburg some bargaining power over their main man.

But Transfermarkt estimate his current value to be around €12.5 million (£11 million), and Celtic do have that kind of money and more from the Dembele sale.
