We don’t yet know what is going to happen with the transfer window for football this summer. The reason for that, of course, is the football lockdown which is currently affecting the game.
However, you do imagine that eventually teams will get permission to sign players, and Celtic should be making plans for that eventuality.
One impact that the lockdown could have on the game is how it will affect clubs’ finances now that they won’t be playing for the foreseeable future.
One team who may be affected by that is English side Gillingham. The Daily Mail reported that they may be forced to sell centre-back Jack Tucker to make sure that wages are paid to players and staff in the months to come.
Hoops have reportedly watched player repeatedly
That is where Celtic come in. The Scottish Sun reported last month that the Hoops have repeatedly scouted the player, who is rated at £1.5 million.
With Gillingham perhaps keen to sell Celtic should swoop in to sign the player, who has made 33 appearances in all competitions this season.
The Hoops may need to wait to find out when players can be signed this summer, but as soon as the window is open Tucker is a player that should be targeted.
Could be part of side for years
He is only 20, and could be part of the Hoops defence for years to come, as well as providing competition for the players who are currently at the club.
Celtic might well be in the market for another defender when the window opens, as there is uncertainty over the future of Jozo Simunovic and Jack Hendry.
Therefore, it might well be in Neil Lennon and Nick Hammond’s plans for the Hoops to go and sign another centre-back when the window opens.
Should he become available, Jack Tucker could be the player that the Hoops make a move for.
