Celtic should consider loan swoop for Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters

Celtic recorded an impressive 2-1 home win over RB Leipzig on Thursday night at Parkhead and that got them back in contention of their Europa League group stage.

The Bhoys earned the European victory courtesy of goals from Kieran Tierney and Odsonne Edouard, as the Scottish champions proved they can compete against top sides.

But amid all the brilliant displays their was once again one player that looked out of place in Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Senior Celtic defender MIkael Lustig was a real weak link at right-back throughout the contest with Leipzig, as the German opposition targeted his flank.

The 31-year-old has seen his form deteriorate recently and his latest display was the icing on the cake, where he mistimed challenges and struggled defensively.

Rodgers should consider prioritising a new right-back in the January transfer window to replace Lustig and turning attention to Premier League outfit Tottenham could be a smart move.

 

Celtic should consider approaching Spurs about their full-back Kyle Walker-Peters, who could be an excellent addition to the squad.

The 21-year-old English right-back has pace and huge potential to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s side, but for now is stuck behind Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier in the pecking order.

He is a highly-rated talent at the North London club and Rodgers should try use his powers of persuasion to try secure a deal for him on loan.

Walker-Peters has had a taste of senior football with 10 first-team Spurs appearances and a loan spell could be great for his development.
