Celtic have been linked with Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki with just a few days left before the transfer window “slams shut” according to a report in The Scottish Sun.
The Parkhead club has had a busy window and have seen wide men Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan depart the club but remain strong in that department with Daniel Arzani back in first-team reckoning and Mohamed Elyounoussi also close to a return.
Neil Lennon has tinkered with his shape recently – with James Forrest also being unavailable – to include two central strikers and his side have managed to start 2020 with a perfect winning record, however, there may yet be room for new additions if something becomes available as he told reporters in his pre-match press conference:
“We’re working away, but if we don’t bring anyone else in then I’ll be happy to go with what we have”.
“The squad has good depth and quality. It’s always a difficult window and fans are looking for new faces. But I won’t bring in players just for the sake of it. Put it this way, if the window closed tonight I’d be happy enough”.
“It helps we had a good window last summer. That was very good and I was delighted with it, even though one or two are out at the moment. I can’t guarantee we’ll do any more business this month”.
“Sometimes, towards the end of a window, players become available that you wouldn’t have expected. A few names may pique our interest, but right now it’s all quiet”.
Grosicki, 31, has scored 8 goals in 31 appearances this season and although he is out of contract in the summer The Sun reports that the Tigers have the option of extending his deal by another twelve months in a similar fashion that saw Sinclair extend his stay last May.
He has 73 Poland caps and would represent a solid addition to the Hoops forward line with experience of British football and having played international football at the highest level.
Celtic will continue to be linked with names – especially wingers – until the window closes on Friday but Lennon appears to be preparing fans for a quiet few days as he satisfies himself with the £5.5m spent of Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro.
