Celtic have been busy in the January transfer window having already secured the signings of both Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro but a recent report suggests they might not be finished just yet.
According the the printed version of The Scottish Daily Mail (29/01/2020, back page) – via Daily Record – Celtic are considering a move for Hull City’s Kamil Grosicki, who is out of contract with the Championship club in the summer.
The report claims Neil Lennon would like to sign a wide man before the window clsoes and they have also scouted Bristol City’s Niclas Eliasson.
Grosicki has been a mainstay for the Yorkshire outfit so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing four assists in 28 Championship games.
Even at 31 years of age it’s clear that Celtic’s target has plenty to offer, and it’s no surprise that plenty of positive murmurs have been emerging from the fans on Twitter.
Indeed, these fans suggested the club should move for his signature, with one citing the Poland international’s past form to justify his point of view.
Take. Hull absolutely killed him, he was one of the most promising wingers around 3 or 4 years ago.

Meanwhile, other fans simply talked up the winger’s ability.
Ringing endorsements were offered for the player and one fan even suggested he could have an impact akin to that of Kris Commons, who scored a whopping 62 goals from 149 SPFL games in a glittering stint at Paradise.
I have no idea why he is at hull, he is miles better.

Grosicki is a baller – old but I think he could have a Commons like impact

Finally, though, one fan suggested Lennon should trust in Marian Shved instead of targeting a new winger.
And considering the Ukrainian has played just 15 minutes of league football so far this season, it’s easy to understand why fans are eager to see him handed a proper opportunity to impress.
Crazy idea but maybe we should play our young Ukrainian internationalist who was only last year smashing in goals in the Ukrainian Premier.
Don’t want to see the Neil Lennon hoarding of 2012-2014 ever again.
