Celtic target Oliver Burke could increase pressure on Scott Sinclair


Celtic target Oliver Burke could increase pressure on Scott Sinclair

Celtic attacker Scott Sinclair is definitely a player that divides opinion at Parkhead, as he can go from a world beater one match to invisible in the next.

The 29-year-old winger has been directly involved in 15 goals in 33 games so far this season, but not been completely at the races and is still not hitting his peak.

But he may be forced to raise his game in the second half of the season to keep his spot in the side, as the Bhoys have reportedly drawn up a January plan to sign another attacker.

According to the Sun, the Scottish giants are prepared to make a loan bid to sign West Brom’s Oliver Burke for the second half of the campaign.


It is understood that Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has asked to try loan the 21-year-old and that he’s available to leave West Brom.

But they could face competition from Millwall, Wigan and his former club Nottingham Forest for his signature.

Burke is a highly-rated Scottish attacker that can play anywhere across the frontline and usually is deployed on the wing.

The 21-year-old was tipped for greatness from a young age when he moved to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, but he is now back in England trying to carve out a clear path for his future.

He’s made just five senior appearances this season for West Brom and needs a fresh move to get back on track.

Burke is a speed machine with tons of trickery and an eye for goal, which is why he could be a top addition for Celtic and one that Rodgers can help nurture.

Sinclair would certainly have fresh competition if the youngster joins in January and it would only improve the squad.
