Frank McAvennie has exclusively told Football FanCast that Josh King would be a hugely successful signing for Celtic.
King joined Everton on a short-term deal in January, but has failed to score in eight substitute appearances and will be available on a free transfer this summer, should the Toffees decide against signing him permanently.
But whilst the Norwegian striker has failed to make an impact on Merseyside, King is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League having scored 48 times across five seasons for Bournemouth prior to their relegation last term.
Despite King’s poor form for Everton, he’s been attracting attention from other Premier League sides, although recent reports suggest that Eddie Howe wants to make him one of his first signings at Parkhead.
“I think he’s a good player. I think he could do wonders up here,” McAvennie told Football FanCast.
“It would be great for him to come up here, spend two or three years and win some trophies. That’s what he would want and he would score goals up here, although he would have to get fit.
“He would come up here and he would definitely score goals and would be a great replacement if Eddie goes.”
