Celtic: Postecoglou can form magical duo with Edouard Michut swoop

Celtic have seen a significant number of midfield players leave Parkhead since the end of last season.

The likes of Tom Rogic, Nir Bitton, Ismaila Soro, Luca Connell, Kerr McInroy and Ewan Henderson have all waved goodbye to Paradise in recent weeks and months.

In terms of incomings, the only midfielder who has put pen to paper on a deal at the Premiership champions this summer is Aaron Mooy, who joined on a free transfer after his exit from Shanghai Port earlier in the year.

With 44 goals and 40 assists to his name in 319 senior club appearances throughout his career, the 31-year-old could be a useful goal contributor to Ange Postecoglou’s side from the middle of the park.

Another midfield option with whom the Hoops have been linked recently and who could not only further strengthen that area of the squad but also give Postecoglou the chance to form a special partnership alongside Mooy is Paris Saint-Germain youngster Edouard Michut.

Having made eight senior appearances for the French club, the 19-year-old already has one assist to his name.

First up in this Celtic transfer quiz, which club did Celtic sign Christopher Jullien from?

This shows the attacking talent that he has started to show and the potential that he has to become a regular goal threat from midfield.

To further highlight what sort of player he is, football talent scout Jacek Kulig described the Frenchman on Twitter as a “highly technical and creative playmaker” and a “fantastic” product of PSG’s academy.

Should Celtic sign Edouard Michut this summer?





In terms of a potential move to Celtic, which could cost the Bhoys a reported fee of £2m, having a vastly experienced midfielder like Mooy next to him as a mentor, especially when it comes to scoring and creating goals, could be just what Michut needs in order to develop his game and progress in his career.

Also, with the prospect of potentially getting more game-time with the Hoops than for his current club, and with both teams featuring in the Champions League this season, this could make a move to Glasgow rather tempting for the teenager.

If the French champions are willing to allow their young midfielder to leave Paris this summer, Celtic should do all that they can to ensure that they win his signature and see if he can blossom into a top talent at Parkhead.
