Report: Celtic could return for Fraser Forster next month
Celtic could reportedly make a fresh move for Fraser Forster next month.
The Athletic have claimed the Hoops could try to re-sign the Southampton stopper after failing to land him for another stint in the summer.
Forster of course, spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Parkhead, impressing especially in Europe.
He played a big part in Celtic winning the domestic treble, and many fans were gutted the club couldn’t bring him back.
This season, the failure to re-sign Forster is proving costly, with Celtic way behind Rangers in the league and already out of the Europa League.
With the £70,000-a-week star (Spotrac) having not been handed a single minute the season by Ralph Hasenhuttl, The Athletic say Celtic could now try to make another approach for Forster to replace the under-fire Vasilis Barkas.
TBR’s View – Forster a matter of urgency for Celtic
Things are look bleak at the moment for Celtic, and the club should absolutely be looking to bring Forster back to the club as a matter or urgency in the winter window.
Clearly Hasenhuttl doesn’t want to use him over Alex McCarthy, and Celtic must throwing everything at a deal.
Barkas looks nervous and Scott Bain also doesn’t convince, and an arrival of Forster could give the dressing room and, particularly, the defence a huge lift.
