Celtic must make an audacious approach to sign Tammy Abraham from Premier League giants Chelsea in the January transfer window with Brendan Rodgers side in dire need of a new centre-forward.
Rodgers’ has confirmed that his side are “in the market” for new acquisition upfront with Odsonne Edouard ruled of action until at least three weeks for injury sustained in the 3-0 win against Motherwell on Wednesday night.
Report from London Evening Standard is claiming Chelsea could consider recalling the 21-year-old from his loan at Aston Villa in order to cash in on him and fund their pursuit of AFC Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.
However, Celtic are bound to face keen competition from Newcastle United and Crystal Palace for the signing of England forward, but should also enter the race to sign the striker because he would be a seriously good addition to their attack.
With Abraham’s clinical form in the English Championship this season, he would provide a solid layer of depth for Celtic upfront while he would also be a number one option for the Glasgow giants.
Abraham so far with the Villains, has netted 12 goals in 16 appearances, with eight of his goals coming in the West Midlands club last six matches.
His move to Celtic is likely to cost Celtic a club record fee, withe report claiming Chelsea have placed a £10million price-tag on the striker’s head, but he will definitely be worth it and that value could more than double before the end of the season if he continues his fine form in the Scottish Premiership.
