All signs are pointing towards the January transfer window being a very busy one for the Scottish side Celtic FC as players of the club have lured the attention of clubs around Europe including: Arsenal and Bolton Wanderers.
The Premier League club Arsenal was recently linked with the 23 year old Dutch centre-back of Celtic FC. Arsene Wenger is eager to boost his defensive options and one of the players that he has set his sights on is Virgil van Dijk.
The experienced midfielder Kris Commons is another player who might be transferred in January or at the end of the current season. The contract of Commons will expire when the current season reaches its end. Neil Lennon is coach of Bolton Wanderers and he has already voiced his intention in signing Commons from Celtic.
It has not been announced as to how much money will Neil Lennon be allowed and willing to spend in order to sign his January transfer target, Kris Commons but the boss of Celtic is confident that he and his assistants at Celtic are going to try everything in order to keep his star players.
“It’s still quite a long time until the window is open, so there’s going to be rumors every week but we want to keep our best players and that is what we will be going for. We want to keep those who are performing and we know are going to be important, then add other players so we can progress.” Celtic’s Ronny Deila told the media.
Ronny Deila wants to keep his star players in the squad but the manager also said that anything can happen as the main objective of the coach is to increase the quality of the team. The injection of cash that could bring in selling some of his players can also help Deila in signing some of his own targets in January and solve some of the weaknesses that Celtic has been suffering from recently.
