“Ange Postecoglou and Celtic have got their priorities,” Sky Sports reporter

It’s an incredibly relaxing position to be in to think Celtic’s transfer business may have been concluded with an incredible 44 days of the transfer window remaining.

Just as we did with the January window, Celtic have not only been busy in the transfer market, they have also got their business done early.

Yet according to Sky Sports Anthony Joseph Celtic’s business may not be concluded just yet, as he took to social media to hint another attacking player may still make their way to Celtic in the coming days and weeks.

‘With 44 days left in the transfer window, Ange Postecoglou & Celtic have got their priorities. Any more will be to add strength in depth…’

With six new signings, seven if you include the completion of Daizen Maeda’s Yokahama F Marinos obligation to buy also being concluded in this window, Celtic have spent north of £17m on transfer fees alone, that’s before wages and signing on fees are taken into account. Yet it would appear another forward may still be on the mind of Ange Postecoglou.

Much of that may be dependent on the likes of Albian Ajei and Christopher Jullien having their substantial salaries shifted from the wage bill, but with historical links earlier in the window to the likes of Ferencvaros attacker Ryan Mmaee and free agent gift horse Jordan Larsson still without a club, then perhaps there is indeed an interest from Celtic in bringing another attacking player to the club.

It’s an area of course Celtic have fairly well covered, but should a high earner or two make their way through the exit door, then the possibility certainly opens up that Celtic could yet add to their attacking options before the transfer window – sorry it has to be said – slams shut!
