As reported by The Sun, Celtic are tracking the progress of a striker who is knocking in the goals for club and country at youth level.
Celtic have had a fantastic recent track record of bringing through teenage talent into the first team with the likes of Kieran Tierney, Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts all excelling at a young age for the Hoops.
Now The Sun are reporting they’re tracking the progress of another – Real Madrid youngster Dani Gomez. The 18 year old striker has been with the Spanish giants since a young age and the paper reckon he would be available for a fee of around £3m.
That’s not an insignificant sum for Celtic, so is he worth it?
Gomez joined Real Madrid when he was 12 years old and is described as pacy, agile and gifted with strength on the club’s official website.
He certainly appears to be making good progress in his development and is in lethal form for both the Madrid U19s side and the Spanish U19s side.
He has eight goals in his last nine appearances for both and helped his club to the semi-finals of the UEFA Youth League, scoring four goals in seven in the competition.
He’s had the education at one of the biggest clubs in the world and now he needs first team action. Given the talent available to Zinedine Zidane, it seems unlikely he’ll get that at Madrid but it’s something that Celtic can certainly offer if they believe in his talent.
