Marcus Coco should follow Odsonne Edouard and Olivier Ntcham to Celtic

Celtic currently have two Frenchmen in their first-team squad and both are impressing.

Olivier Ntcham stars in Celtic’s central midfield. And Odsonne Edouard is getting better and better up front.

Both players have recently joined Celtic and they are in and around the France youth team squads.

Alongside Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata and DR Congo midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu, there is a fast-growing Francophone contingent at Celtic Park.

Players like to join like-minded team-mates and Celtic can use this to their advantage by bringing in some talented young French starlets.

The 22-year-old is currently in the France under-21 squad and is highly rated by club and country.

At Guingamp, he plays a pivotal role in their Ligue 1 campaign, providing exciting displays on the wing.

Able to operate on both wings, Coco is a constant threat in the French top division.

Coco already has over 100 appearances to his name, despite his young age. And he has struck eight goals.

At Celtic, he could thrive under a top manager in Rodgers and among his French-speaking team-mates.

This is definitely a market that the Bhoys can look to exploit in the future and Coco could be the next top French talent to make his name in Scotland.
