Adrian Ramos

Adrian Ramos

Admittedly, this opening suggestion is a bit of a long-shot, but amid Celtic’s need for a dependable front-man, Hertha Berlin striker Adrian Ramos comes to mind.

The Colombian has always been a reliable performer in the Bundesliga, but has exceeded expectations this season by rising to the top of the division’s goalscoring charts.

His 14 goals – in addition to five assists – in 22 appearances is parallel to the efforts of Robert Lewandowski this season, and trumps Bayern Munich’s Mario Mandzukic by one goal.

There’s been a lot of noise about the versatile forward moving to a club of the Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal ilk in the summer, with his Hertha contract now into its last 18 months, but at 28 years of age, that seems incredibly unlikely.

None the less, Ramos seems keen to move onto new horizons after his continued success in the German capital, and Celtic’s regular attendance in the Champions League could be a project that excites him.

The 6 foot 1 forward would come at relatively low cost, and is valued by at just £6million.
