Players Celtic should dream about signing from Euro 2024

Which players should Celtic dream about signing from Euro 2024?

Euro 2024 is clearly  a showcase of top talent from across Europe, and clubs like Celtic will be on the lookout for emerging stars and established players who could strengthen their squad if Celtic plan to invest heavily in quality players with progression in the Champions league in mind.

Given Celtic’s increased ambitions and style of play, here are a few players worth keeping an eye on at Euro 2024, even if most of them are players the Hoops could only dream of signing!  Nice bit of fantasy football this, if Celtic win a Euro Millions jackpot!

Adam Hložek (Czech Republic)

Hložek is a versatile forward who can play across the front line. His ability to create and score goals, combined with his physicality and technical skills, make him a prime candidate for a move. His performances at Euro 2024 could solidify his reputation as one of Europe’s top young talents.  Unrealistic for a move to Celtic though but we could end up facing him in the Champions League next season if he remains at Bayer Leverkusen.

Gravenberch is a dynamic midfielder known for his dribbling, passing, and tactical awareness. At just 22, he has already shown immense potential at Ajax and Bayern Munich before signing for Liverpool. His ability to control the tempo of a game could make him an ideal fit for Celtic’s midfield.

Mikkel Damsgaard (Denmark)

Damsgaard made headlines at Euro 2020 with his stunning performances. The attacking midfielder/winger is known for his creativity, vision, and goal-scoring ability. If he continues to impress at Euro 2024, he could be a fantastic addition to Celtic’s attacking options and would give him a chance to shine in the Champions League, which is unlikely to happen at Brentford.

 Florian Wirtz (Germany)

Wirtz is one of Germany’s brightest young talents, capable of playing both as an attacking midfielder and winger. His vision, passing, and dribbling skills make him a player to watch. He would bring an extra creative spark to Celtic’s line-up if Leverkusen fancied a straight swap deal for Mikey Johnston.

Patrik Schick (Czech Republic)

Schick was one of the standout performers at Euro 2020, known for his clinical finishing and aerial prowess. If he continues to deliver on the big stage, he could be an excellent signing for Celtic, adding firepower to their forward line. Again a straight swap for another Leverkusen player with Celtic offering Oh and James McCarthy plus £200k.

Orkun Kökçü (Turkey)

Kökçü is a creative midfielder at Benfica who has impressed with his vision and passing range. His ability to dictate play from midfield and contribute defensively makes him a well-rounded option for Celtic. Celtic could use the money that they’ve succeed in chipping off the Paulo Bernardo option to buy fee to secure Kökçü’s services!  If you don’t ask…

Josip Juranović (Croatia)

Juranović, already familiar to Celtic fans, could further prove his worth at Euro 2024 Odds. His defensive solidity and ability to support the attack from the right-back position make him a valuable asset. Watching his performances could reassure Celtic of his continued development and he may well be pining for a return to Paradise.  Again a straight swap deal here for a range of Celtic defenders who would surely improve the Union Berlin defence.

 David Raum (Germany)

Raum is a dynamic left-back known for his crossing ability and defensive acumen. With Celtic potentially looking to strengthen their defensive options, Raum could be a player worth monitoring closely and RB Leipzig should not be hard to deal with, maybe with a cheeky low-ball offer from the Peter Lawwell tricks of the trade transfer manual he left in his desk for Michael Nicholson.

By keeping an eye on these players, Celtic could identify key talents who not only shine at Euro 2024 but also fit the club’s playing style and long-term fantasy football strategy. On a more serious point, had Celtic access to the Premier League then these are the type of players we would be looking at.
