Report: Bournemouth eye Celtic loan striker Timothy Weah

Celtic could face competition to keep striker Timothy Weah beyond the summer, with Premier League outfit Bournemouth reportedly ready to swoop.

The Scottish Sun report that the south coast club have been watching the young American since his loan move to Parkhead from Paris Saint-Germain in January.

Scout and ex-striker Mark Burchill also watched him in action for the USA’s U23s last month.

Weah has caught they eye in Scotland having scored four goals.

 

The teenager hasn’t yet been able to make himself a regular starter in the side, which will surely encourage Bournemouth about a potential summer move.

TBR’s view

Celtic apparently want to keep hold of Weah ahead of next season, but Bournemouth’s supposed interest is a blow to their hopes.

Barring a catastrophic end to the season, the Cherries will be playing in the English top flight once again next season, and that will surely appeal to Weah.

If the Hoops really want him to stay beyond his loan deal, then Neil Lennon will have to hand him more starts between now and the end of the season, or else he could consider other options.

There is strong competition in the forward areas though from the likes Odsonne Edouard, Oliver Burke, Scott Sinclair and James Forrest, but Weah is a bright young talent and is already well liked by the Celtic faithful.
