The Celtic forward line for next season could feature an array of full and youth international talent and Neil Lennon will be spoilt for choice whether he decides to start with one or two leading the line.

Current deputy to Odsonne Edouard, Patryk Klimala finally appears to have settled into life at Parkhead and the 21-year old Poland youth international is fully focussed on improving his game so that when he is called upon, he is ready to deliver, according to an interview reported in The Daily Record.

“I have learned a lot of things from Odsonne during this pre-season. It was really good for me and now I can try to use some of these things on the pitch.

“Sometimes we talk about it but really I just watch how he plays on the pitch. Sometimes I can just watch him and learn some things but we are different players.

“Odsonne plays the game differently from me but there are many things that I like that he does and I can learn from him.”

Edouard, like Klimala, was far from the finished product when he first arrived on Scottish shores and has improved year on year to the level that he is now seen as a potential target for top Premier League sides.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon

From which club did Celtic sign Neil Lennon?

The Pole will be hoping to follow in his footsteps, although he could soon face an even tougher challenge with the news that Celtic are looking to add both Ivan Toney and Albian Ajeti to their already goal heavy squad.

Lennon will be spoilt for choice if he manages to get both players over the line but if Klimala continues to show the determination and work rate that he has in recent months, they will have a fight on their hands to edge out the former Jagiellonia Bialystok striker.
