20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals

  20 players Celtic could possibly target in pre-contract January deals Celtic managed to bring in six players during the summer transfer window. AC Milan left-back Diego Laxalt was the final addition, arriving on a season-long loan deal. The Uruguayan joins Vasilios Barkas, Albian Ajeti, Shane Duffy, Moi Elyounoussi and David Turnbull through the door at Celtic Park, and the Hoops’ recruitment team will more than likely be turning their attention to the January window. The turn of the year also gives the club the opportunity to explore pre-contract agreement deals with players who are out of contract at the end of the 2020/21 season.

AC Milan have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 matches against Celtic in all competitions. Celtic have now lost two of their last five home matches, which doesn't bode well for the welcome of AC Milan , who have won every match this season.

The Hoops will look to bounce back from derby day defeat as they host Serie A leaders AC Milan in their Europa League Group H opener.

Let’s not sugarcoat it: we were abysmal on Saturday and lacked any fight, desire or hunger to actually win the game. The team looked content for things to remain the same when Rangers doubled their lead. Serious questions have, and will continue, to be asked of the players and manager if things don’t change.

Thursday poses a new challenge for Lennon and co, which comes in the form of one of Italy’s biggest clubs, AC Milan. The Rossoneri were involved in another one of Europe’s biggest and fiercest rivalries at the weekend; a Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace was enough to fire Milan top of the table with a 2-1 win over Inter; Stefano Pioli’s side have won four from four in Serie A (scoring nine and conceding just one goal in the process).

Predicted XI: Celtic v Rangers (H)

  Predicted XI: Celtic v Rangers (H) The return of club football will be welcomed by many after a bizarre and unprecedented week for Celtic. Though despite the off-field drama, they have the chance to go top of the table with a win over Glasgow rivals Rangers this Saturday. The international break got off to the worst of starts when Odsonne Edouard tested positive for COVID-19 while away with France U21s, and shortly after Ryan Christie was told he’d have to isolate after being identified as a close contact of Scotland teammate Stuart Armstrong – who had tested positive too.

So it’s fair to say it’s a tough task for the Scottish champions, though it’s one that would give them a much needed boost if they were to get a result (a big ‘if’, that is).

Whether Lennon sticks with 3-5-2 or decides to shake things up in order to combat Milan’s attack remains to be seen; could we see the return of a 4-2-3-1?

Jullien (back), Edouard (protocals and testing), Elhamed/Bitton (isolating), Forrest (ankle) and Johnston (surgery) are all unavailable for Celtic; Ryan Christie is back in the squad.

Elyounoussi's Milan cameo has given Lennon attacking headache .
Celtic suffered a second straight defeat in the week, as they went down 3-1 to AC Milan in their Europa League opener on Thursday. However, one positive to come out of the performance at Celtic Park was the second-half display of Moi Elyounoussi, who, we feel, has now given Lennon a real attacking headache ahead of Sunday’s clash with Aberdeen. The Norwegian was part of a double change at the break alongside Ryan Christie, initially partnering Albian Ajeti in attack. Elyounoussi had really struggled for form in the past few weeks. He was the club’s worst performer in the 2-0 win over St Johnstone prior to the international break, with a WhoScored rating of 6.17.
