'I am so sad', 'I'd take him': Some Celtic fans react as Hoops reportedly edge closer to striker transfer
A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports claiming that the Hoops are growing increasingly confident of signing striker Charlie Wyke on a free transfer.
Wyke is attracting a lot of attention. He goes into the summer off the back of, by far, his best season for Sunderland.
The 28-year-old scored 30 goals in all competitions. And according to The Northern Echo, he is set to be out of contract at the Stadium of Light.
Unsurprisingly, the Black Cats want to keep Wyke. However, Celtic look to be the front-runners for his signature.
The Northern Echo reports that they are confident of signing Wyke. And that has prompted quite a strong reaction on social media.
It looks to be a pivotal window at Parkhead. Ange Postecoglou has arrived. And the club are looking to move themselves back into the title picture.
However, many clearly do not see signing Wyke doing that. Admittedly, his record has been incredibly inconsistent over his career.
‘Celtic have somehow made the Scotland result look good’: Some fans concerned by striker transfer reports
And several are desperately hoping that further attacking additions would still be on their way if he did come in.
Some are a little more optimistic. On a free transfer, such a deal carries much less risk.
But there are major concerns…
on a free, nothing to lose and we need another striker as we are down to the bare bones, he is a bit different too, big penalty box striker

Sunderland fans all saying he’s average so hopefully that’s not true unless he’s coming in as 3rd/4th choice

Charlie Wyke : Movement, strength, instinct, finishing and positional sense all seems strong. Getting him on a free transfer is good business for me, looks well suited to the Scottish game and could flourish in a Celtic team. A good focal point in attack.
