Alberth Elis as caught the eye of Celtic scouts as the MSL striker has confirmed that he wishes to make a European move and already has a few clubs who are expressing interest.

The striker will use the MLS is back tournament that is scheduled to start in July to get clubs talking about his performances, in return for a potential move away from the USA.

The Honduras international has also been backed by compatriot and former Hoops player Emilio Izaguirre, who has backed claims that Celtic are looking at him.

Speaking to his national media outlet :

I know that if I have a very good tournament, there are teams that will be watching… this is very beneficial for me… I hope that very good offers come.’

When speaking of Celtic’s interest.

Our Verdict

The striker’s form has been impressive of late and if Lennon does indeed manage to get Edouard to stay, Celtic would highly benefit from sticking with both strikers upfront.

We can see Klimala or Bayo having a real impact next season (we could be wrong) and Lennon will need a strong 3rd choice to allow rest to both Griffiths and Edouard.
