Bristol City have had a good season so far, and they are now in a position where they have a great opportunity of reaching the top six.
The Robins have played consistently well for the majority of the campaign, and will now look to add to key areas of the side in the final week of the transfer window.
One player who has been linked with a move away is Niclas Eliasson. The winger has been in good form and according to the Daily Record, he has attracted interest from Celtic.
Here’s ONE winner and ONE loser if Eliasson was to leave Bristol City…

The winger hasn’t featured as much as he’d have liked so far this season and he’ll probably be worried at getting back into the team having seen the form that Eliasson has been in over the past few weeks.
O’Dowda has failed to contribute as much as other players in the squad and so far this season he’s managed to net just once in all competitions. He has to be doing better, although seeing this transfer speculation may give him the opportunity to get back into the starting XI. Eliasson has taken his spot, and if he leaves then there’s a great chance that O’Dowda will play a pivotal role in the last few months of the season.
What a massive blow this would be to Lee Johnson. It would be a really big sale that would take out the flair in the side. Even if the Robins used the money on a striker, they may well find it a struggle to create chances for a new forward without Eliasson in the team.
It’s the type of transfer that Johnson would be very angry about and he’d feel the club would be making steps backwards. Eliasson has managed to get 10 assists in the league so far this season and that’s a fantastic tally that would be very hard to replace.
