Abel Hernandez has been an incredible option for Hull City when he has been able to avoid injuries.
The Uruguayan striker’s current contract runs out in the summer, so he is an enticing free agent for interested clubs due to being proven at this level as well as in the Premier League.
Hull had a poor first season run back in the Championship because they ended the season above the drop in 18th place, but showed they were an exciting side with 70 goals scored as well as 70 goals conceded.
The Celtic target, however, only registered 10 league appearances this season, so his injury issues are a worry. Hernandez’s goal return is remarkable because he netted eight goals in those 10 appearances.
His contributions in the final third aren’t just limited to goals either because he provided an assist as well as creating a total of nine chances. Therefore, he isn’t one-dimensional and could work well with another striker, which opens up the options for the manager of the club that he decides to join whether that be Celtic or somewhere else.
He is heavily involved in the attacking play, though, because he averages 3.1 shots per game while also being a physical presence for the opposition defence to deal with because he wins 1.2 aerial duels on average per game.
Celtic could lose Moussa Dembele, so he would be a great replacement to bring in because of the short-term impact he would have. He could dominate in the Scottish Premier League, but would also be useful in Europe as Brendan Rodgers aims to get Celtic far in that competition.
