Rodgers sets eyes on five World Cup players to sign this summer


Celtic are definitely going to be keeping a close watch on the World Cup for potential transfer target.

We will be taking a look at five players who Celtic should be taking note of their performance at the World Cup, as they could prove to be great additions to Brendan Rodgers’ squad.

Massimo Luongo (Australia)

Luongo will be playing alongside Celtic’s Tom Rogic in Russia, and the Queens Park Rangers man could be a good addition for the Bhoys in the summer.

An excellent passer of the ball, Luongo would conform easily to Rodgers style, and with his future at Loftus Road in doubt, he could well become a target for Celtic.

Sardar Azmoun

Azmoun has been continually linked with a move to Parkhead and boasts an impressive record at international level.

The Rubin Kazan striker has found the net 23 times in 31 games for his country, and Celtic will almost certainly be keeping tabs on his performances.

Joel Campbell (Costa Rica)

Another player who has a current Celtic man as a teammate in his country team in the form of Cristian Gamboa, Campbell could be a great addition to Rodgers’ team.

The former Arsenal man is a powerful forward, who has registered goals in several leagues across Europe and could further make Rodgers’ side a scoring threat.

Ki Sung-Yueng (South Korea)

Ki is not a stranger to Celtic fans, having plied his trade at Parkhead between 2009 and 2012.

The midfielder’s contract will run out in the summer, and would surely be welcomed back at his former club with open arms.

Matz Sels (Belgium)

Likely to be sent out of Newcastle this summer, Sels could help Celtic solve their goalkeeping crisis if his form in Belgium has been anything to go by.
