'In a heartbeat' - Celtic fans react on Twitter to reported interest in PL speed machine

By Will Butcher

Celtic fans have urged their club on Twitter to complete the signing of Chelsea winger Charly Musonda after a report linked him to the club.

The Daily Mail claim Brendan Rodgers is eyeing the Blues youngster after the Belgian enjoyed a hugely successful season in Spain’s top tier with Real Betis this season.

It is believed that Brazil international Lucas Leiva is also on Rodgers’ hitlist, after the duo worked together during Rodgers’ time as manager of Liverpool

Known for his blistering pace, Musonda also has an eye for goal and the ability to provide an assist for a teammate and could prove to be the perfect replacement for Patrick Roberts.

The Daily Mail claimed City are looking to loan Roberts to only a Premier League side or abroad this summer, which could be the reason behind Rodgers’ reported interest in Musonda.
