Former footballer and now pundit, Danny Mills, believes that Celtic should make a move for almost forgotten Aston Villa and Republic of Ireland striker Scott Hogan.
With a good goalscoring record in the lower English tiers, Hogan made an £11million move from Brentford to Aston Villa back in January 2017, but with injuries and form being an issue, it’s not unfair to say the 27-year-old has had a bit of a mare at the club. 32 starts and 29 substitute showings has seen only 10 goals, and clearly out of favour, he spent the second half of last season out on loan with Sheffield United (2 goals in 8 games) and 2019/20 has seen him out at Stoke City (3 goals in 15 games).
Having not featured for Stoke since mid-December and on the back of some speculation linking us with having an interest in him, Mills believes he would be the perfect January capture as we look to bolster our options at the top of the pitch and he feels a spell at Parkhead would more than reinvigorate his career.
“Without a doubt. As a player you want to play at the highest possible level that you can, even if sometimes it may seem beyond you, you’ve got to take that opportunity because you don’t know when it’ll come around again. And sometimes, you surprise people and you surprise yourself. Just think about Sheffield United, did we think they’d do as well as they have in the Premier League? No, I was certainly surprised. And sometimes, it works at some clubs for you and others it doesn’t. Lukaku amazing at West Brom, fabulous at Everton but it didn’t work at Manchester United for him. Sometimes there’s no real great or particular reason, sometimes players just aren’t suited to a certain type of club.”
Is Hogan A Worthy Shout?
