Celtic: Selling Kyogo Furuhashi would be a disaster

Celtic sanctioning the sale of Kyogo Furuhashi in the January transfer window would be a disaster for Ange Postecoglou.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a claim made by Stuart Hodge, with the journalist stating his belief in an interview with GIVEMESPORT that, with Southampton reportedly interested in signing the centre-forward in the January transfer window, should the Hoops cash in on the 26-year-old, it would represent a clear lack of ambition from the Parkhead side.

Speaking about the interest in Kyogo, Hodge said: “If they sell Kyogo Furuhashi after six months, then, I’m not saying it’s going to lead to protest because you never know, but it would be the most telling nail in the coffin of the lack of ambition that Celtic now have – if they were to do that.”

Would selling Kyogo in January be a mistake?





Fans would be fuming

Considering just how impressive the £4.86m summer signing has been for Celtic so far this season, should the club indeed decide to sell the Japan international in the winter market, it would undoubtedly be a decision that would leave fans of the club fuming – as Hodge suggests.

Indeed, over his six Scottish Premiership appearances this term, the £1.8m-rated man has already found the back of the net four times, as well as taking an average of 2.3 shots and making 0.8 key passes per game.

However, it is not only in the league where Kyogo has been prolific in front of goal, as the centre-forward has also scored three goals over four Europa League qualifying fixtures, bagged one goal over two appearances in the Europa League proper and netted one goal in one appearance in the Scottish League Cup – taking his total haul for the season to nine goals in 13 games.

As such, it is easy to see why Hodge believes that selling the striker in January would represent a lack of ambition on the part of Celtic, as it very much appears as if the 26-year-old possesses the ability to fire Celtic back to glory in the current campaign.
