Celtic fans are ecstatic as the club is being closely linked to American wonderkid Timothy Weah.

The Hoops are about to acquire the 18-year-old on loan from PSG according to French sports website RMC.

The Celts will have apparently beaten the likes of Rennes and EPL clubs for his signature.

Timothy Weah fits the bill

The PSG youth is looking to play football with barely a handful of appearances this season.

Brendan Rodgers is looking for two or three strikers to beef up his threadbare front line.

The team of Rodgers and Kolo Toure has apparently sealed the deal to bring Weah to Glasgow.

The striker has also followed a host of Celtic players on Instagram very recently.

The USA international comes with the reputation of being the son of legendry footballer turned politician, George Weah.

Twitter reacts

The Hoops fans are expressing their surprise for this potential early Christmas present.



One down one to go

After Weah’s acquisition, Rodgers will need to go out and build on that impressive first signing.

He still needs and wants another striker to complete the competitive nature for the strikers.

However, the next player must be a permanent buy as fans won’t buy more loans to build-up other teams’ players.

Rodgers and Toure have been ambitious with going after Weah. Fans will want them to keep their sights high for the next signings.

Celtic need potentially a right-back, a centre back and another striker on top of the potential signing of Weah.

Players are coming to the end of their contracts at both right and centre back. These are priority positions and must come from the same stock as Weah.
