With a number of players slated to depart Celtic this summer, a number of fresh faces are likely to join at Parkhead to fill the void.
Of course, the club’s recruitment efforts this summer will have a significant impact on the following season. Naturally, the club will be eager to bounce back as fast as possible following a disastrous season in which they failed to win any trophy for the first time in a long time. As a result, it’s critical that they make the appropriate decisions during the approaching transfer window.
Lewis Ferguson is one player that has recently emerged as a Premier League standout. The Aberdeen midfielder is one of Scotland’s most promising players right now, and at 21 years old, he’ll only become better in the future. As a result, it’s not unexpected that he’s been connected with a number of teams recently, including the Glasgow giants.
Ferguson also submitted a transfer request, which was instantly denied by Aberdeen, according to the club’s official website.
Ferguson has scored 10 goals and contributed 5 assists in 41 games across all competitions this season, according to Transfermarkt statistics.
With Scott Brown and Ryan Christie both expected to leave in the near future, it may make sense for the Hoops to pursue a player like Ferguson, who can play both central and offensive midfield.
Is he good enough to play for a team like Celtic? Only time will tell if this is true. However, his contract with Aberdeen is expected to last until the summer of 2024, indicating that the club will not be in a hurry to let him go. However, the transfer request might pave the way for a summer departure.
