Celtic have been linked with a move for Stoke City contract rebel Tyrese Cambell – and he highlighted his credentials on New Year’s Day.
The son of former Arsenal and Everton striker, Kevin netted twice for Stoke City in their 5-2 demolition of Huddersfield Town.
Celtic are keen to add to their squad during January and could move for Campbell. The 20-year-old is in the last six months of his contract and could cost a measly £350,000 (Daily Record).
The Stoke man has recently impressed Michael O’Neill and earned a chance under the new boss.
His form in the last three games has reaped two goals and two assists and it’s easy to see why Celtic want to sign Campbell.
The Hoops have Odsonne Edouard currently banging in the goals but more competition is definitely necessary.
Some more firepower through the Celtic Park entrance could help keep Rangers at bay as they aim to end the Hoops’ dominance.
Campbell was utilised as a right-winger yesterday and at times he looked unplayable.
He scored twice and created an assist. If Celtic had been scouting the game they will have been delighted by his performance.
Campbell would be a tremendous signing for the Premiership outfit.
Given his low valuation, he is relatively low risk. If he were to impress north of the border his sell-on value could go through the roof.
Campbell is quick, flamboyant and is clearly capable of scoring goals.
At 20 there is plenty of time for him to improve and working under Neil Lennon at Celtic might be perfect for his career.
On current form, Celtic won’t be the only interested party.
The reigning champions would be wise to pounce on Campbell now rather than risk losing out to another club.
