Another young player making a name for himself at one of Europe’s top clubs that has been mentioned with a reported £2m move to Glasgow this summer is Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Edouard Michut.
Having joined PSG’s youth ranks from Versailles back in 2016, the 19-year-old has gone on to make 17 appearances for the club across their senior and youth sides, chipping in with one goal and one assist along the way.
With eight senior appearances to his name for the French giants, five of them came during their previous Ligue 1 campaign, where he managed to assist a goal from Thilo Kehrer during PSG’s 1-1 draw against Olympique Lyon back in January.
To further highlight what sort of player Michut is, football talent scout, Jacek Kulig described the teenager as a “highly technical and creative playmaker” and a “fantastic” young prospect at PSG.
In fact, Kulig also spoke about the French starlet in the same breath as Barcelona youngster Gavi, in terms of their “natural football IQ” as well as their ability to “already have three passing options in their heads before even controlling the ball.”
In those appearances, Gavi has managed to score two goals and provide six assists in the process.
Hailed as an “erupting volcano” by Luis Enrique, the Spaniard certainly looks likely to have a big career ahead of him.
Taking all of this into account, if Celtic were able to land their own version of the Barcelona starlet in the shape of Michut, this could be a very exciting move for the Parkhead club to make.
With the several young players that have waved goodbye to the club in recent weeks, it’s safe to say that the Hoops have the space to add a young talent to their ranks that could have what it takes to force his way into Ange Postecoglou’s squad.
