With Vakoun Issouf Bayo set to leave on a season-long loan, Celtic need another striker, and they are looking to see if they can bring in Nmecha.
The Man. City academy graduate spent the second-half of last season on loan at English Championship side Middlesbrough have spent the first-half at Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg.
While the 21-year-old couldn’t find the back of the net in 24 games last term and only scored four times in 44 games for Preston North End in 2018-19, he remains highly thought of by City manager Pep Guardiola.
The Germany youth international can also play on the right side of the attack and could be a fine cover for Odsonne Edouard.
Nmecha’s pace could be a great weapon of attack for Celtic and the fact that he was a prolific goalscorer at youth level means he has the potential to become a great finisher.
He scored 28 goals at under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels during the 2017-18 season — more than any other player in his age category in England, and he could rediscover that form in the Premiership.
