According to the Daily Mail, Celtic are interested in signing Michael Olise from Reading in the summer transfer window as Neil Lennon looks to add to his squad.
The Hoops have seen themselves crowned champions in Scotland once again with the SPFL bringing the campaign to a close and now they’ll be focusing on building for 2020/21.
Indeed, it’s a big year next year in Scottish football as Celtic look to go for a tenth title in a row and Rangers look to stop them, so both will be aiming for productive transfer windows.
Olise could be on his way to the Hoops, then, and there are a few reasons why such a move could work out in the Bhoys’ favour.
Let’s take a look at those reasons now:
The first one is fairly obvious, Olise has big potential and could be a star if he gets the right tutelage at the right club.
Celtic pride themselves on bringing through good young players and giving them the chance to shine and Olise could benefit hugely from even more game time than he is already getting at Reading.
Fits Celtic signing profile
Celtic know what they’re doing when signing attacking young players and making them even better.
Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard are prime examples of that in recent years and they’d be confident of similar results with Olise given their track record, which is obviously why they’d want to get him in.
Potential sell on
If and when it came to selling Olise, there is a good chance that Celtic would make quite the profit on him.
They made a great deal of financial gain when Moussa Dembele left the club and stand to do so from further moves he makes and Olise could provide more financial boosts if the Hoops developed him and opted to then let him go in a few years.
