Celtic and Brighton both looking at January move for influential Championship ace



Scottish giants Celtic and Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion could be set to go head to head to sign Wigan midfielder Nick Powell.

The Latics man, who has been influential over the last few seasons as the club have got back into the Championship, has been impressing once again this season and could well be set to be part of a January bidding war.

According to the Sun, Powell is a target for both Chris Hughton and Brendan Rodgers, with both managers looking like they are already making plans to add to their respective squads in the winter window.

The 24-year-old has found his feet with the Latics after a few seasons seemingly wandering around the football league following his failed spell with Manchester United. Loan spells with Hull and Leicester City did not work out, however a spell with Wigan back in 2013 was enough to convince the Latics to make a permanent move for the attacking midfielder back in 2016.

Since then, Powell has gone from strength to strength, notching 15 goals last term as he helped his team to promotion from League One.

Powell already has three goals this term, and it is now clear that his form is catching the attention of onlooking managers, with both Celtic and Brighton now looking to make their move.

Wigan fans, what do you think? Would you sell Powell? Let us know in the comments!
