Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has been linked with a move away from Parkhead, and the Hoops have identified Thomas Henry as his replacement.
Celtic must look to bring in adequate replacements if the Frenchman moves on, and Henry seems like a superb fit for them.
The 26-year-old OH Leuven striker bagged 21 goals and seven assists last season and could prove to be a quality addition to Celtic’s attack.
Henry could certainly replace Edouard’s goalscoring numbers. The target man could also add a different skill-set to the team.
He is a reliable goalscorer, excellent in the air, and his ability to hold up the ball and bring others into the play would add a new dimension to Ange Postecoglou’s side.
Swansea City recently tried to sign the striker, but their offer of £6 million was turned down.
Celtic should have the resources to pay his asking price once Edouard’s exit is confirmed.
They are hoping to recoup around £18 million for the 23-year-old Frenchman.
The Hoopes have already improved their attack with the signings of Liel Abada and Kyogo Furuhashi.
The addition of a reliable goalscorer could complete Postecoglou’s attacking unit for the season.
Update: Celtic have reportedly submitted a £7 million bid for the player.
