Celtic had a particularly busy transfer window with no fewer than 12 new faces joining up with the first-team squad at Parkhead.
However, Ange Postecoglou’s recruitment has come with mixed success in what has been a topsy-turvy campaign for the Hoops.
With the likes of Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard leaving Paradise behind this summer, Celtic looked at significantly bolstering their attack.
Giorgos Giakoumakis and Kyogo Furuhashi have arrived to fill up spots in a more central area while the lively characters of Jota and Liel Abada have been threatening out wide.
However, after failing to score against Livi this weekend, there is a sense Celtic need more depth in their side.
One player the club looked at signing in January was Fulham’s Anthony Knockaert.
That’s according to a fresh report from Football League World who state the Frenchman had attracted the likes of Celtic, QPR and West Brom.
A move didn’t materialise but work is now being done behind the scenes at Craven Cottage in order to find the winger a new club.
Furuhashi has had a wonderful start to his life with the Hoops. Signed before Edouard left, he became the Frenchman’s natural heir as the club’s leading striker.
After failing to score against Livi, supporters will be lusting after his return, as well as a source of chance creation.
Abada has shown flashes of his excellence in Glasgow, amassing eight goal contributions in 11 outings.
Jota, meanwhile, was the provider of Albion Ajeti’s goal against Betis last Thursday and looks incredibly sharp in the final third.
With James Forrest already out injured, losing another of them further down the line would expose Celtic’s lack of depth again.
Knockaert, therefore, would be a particularly good addition to the squad. Not only would he provide them with more options offensively but a potential partnership with Kyogo is a mouth-watering thought.
The Japan international has caught the eye with his pace and close touch control, something Knockaert also has in abundance.
He’s only scored five times in the last two seasons but on his day, the 29-year-old is a dangerous weapon.
With that in mind, it’s hardly a surprise to hear him described as a player of “high quality” by pundit Ben Parker.
In supplying 2.1 key passes per game, it demonstrates that the £2.7m-rated magician could be a regular feeder of the ball for Kyogo. His 2.7 dribbles a match during the same campaign also paints a particularly vibrant picture.
Just imagine the thought of him down the wing creating opportunities for not only himself but also their Japanese sensation. If Celtic still have Knockaert on their radar then a January swoop simply has to be on the cards.
