If deal is torn up, Celtic must seal swoop for powerful attacker reportedly on radar


It seems likely that Charly Musonda’s disappointing loan spell with Celtic may well be coming to a premature end.

Brendan Rodgers has even stated, as quoted by the Daily Record, that Chelsea could well end the loan agreement a year earlier, due to the Belgian’s lack of playing time.

The Hoops will now need a replacement attacker, and one player who seems like an ideal replacement is Red Star Belgrade winger Luka Adzic.

The Bhoys have previously been linked with a move for the 19-year-old, with the player’s agent claiming in January, as reported by the Daily Record, that the Hoops have the attacker on their radar.

A move has not yet materialised, but it might now after the failure of the Musonda experiment.

The player is 6ft tall, which is not what you expect from a winger, especially those at Celtic, where the wingers are usually small and tricky, and as a result Adzic would add a new, powerful dimension to the team.

Adzic’s contract runs out in December, so the Hoops would have to pay a transfer fee for the player, but he seems to exemplify the Hoops’ transfer policy, a player that you buy for cheap then sell on in a few years for a huge transfer fee.

Only time will tell if the move happens, but Adzic looks to be an ideal replacement for Musonda as the Hoops go forward.
