It appears a majority of Celtic fans have made their mind up on midfielder Eboue Kouassi, with many believing that he doesn’t have what it takes to become a regular for Brendan Rodgers’ first team.

The 20-year-old joined the Hoops in January 2017, for a reported fee of £3m, but has started just 10 times in the period since, most recently in last week’s defeat to Hearts at Tynecastle.

His performance in that match left a lot to be desired, raising question marks about the progress he is making in Rodgers’ squad and the decision by the club to sign him from Krasnodar.

Transfers have been a hot topic with fans over the last couple of weeks, with many hoping to see serious quality arrive in the last couple of weeks of the window, having so far been disappointed this summer.

With defenders definitely needed, a central midfielder would be nice too after missing out on John McGinn, seeing Stuart Armstrong leave for Southampton and many not rating Eboue Kouassi’s chances of backing up Olivier Ntcham and Scott Brown.

A massive 74% of respondents to a poll we published this week feel the midfielder doesn’t have a future at the club.

  • It’s a pity because I thought he had a lot of potential when he was signed but his appearances have been fleeting. In 18 months he’s failed to stake a claim for a place in the first team. We still haven’t seen too much of him but he seems to be lacking in guile and doesn’t seem to possess the ability to impose himself on the game. Close on 3 million was spent on what would appear to be, at best, a bench-warming player so this signing will be deemed by most as a failure. Whatever happened to Nir Bitton? Although he had his limitations, he always gave his best and I think he was a very useful squad player. He’s been sidelined for ages by what wouild appear to be a very serioius injury but it’s a bit odd that nothing is ever published about his recovery process.
    Anyway, it would be good to bring in an experienced central midfielder but the priority has to be both the RB and CB positions.
