The two players Celtic need to buy and the two they must sell THIS summer

With Rangers hot on their tail, Celtic will need to ensure they improve their squad in the summer transfer market to continue their dominance of Scottish football.

Celtic are now ten points clear at the SPFL summit but the table suggests it’s not been as comfortable for them at the top as the margin suggests.

Having lost manager Brendan Rodgers to Leicester, big changes could be set to happen at Celtic Park as the club embark on a new era.

Express Sport has taken a look at two players Celtic should consider bringing in this summer and two stars they should look to get rid of in order to continue moving forwards next season.

In comings

Patrick Roberts – Manchester City (currently on loan at Girona)

Celtic fans loved Patrick Roberts during his two years on loan from Manchester City.

But they were priced out of a move for the young winger last summer after his stock increased as a result of his high quality performances.

Roberts has disappointed on loan at Girona in La Liga this season meaning he’s fallen away from the spotlight.

With the Englishman reportedly keen on cutting ties once and for all with City this summer, Celtic should try and capitalise.

Timothy Castagne – Atalanta

The Belgian has emerged as a player on Celtic’s radar and a move for the defender would make plenty of sense.

Neil Lennon’s side are in need of some experience at the back and Castagne has been capped twice by his national team.

Predominately a right-back, the 23-year-old can also fill in on the left side of defence.

Whoever is in charge next season at Celtic will be looking to sign a leader in defence, Castagne would not be a bad point of call.


Dedryck Boyata

The big defender has been a great servant to the club but he will leave in May upon the expiry of his contract.

Celtic should be kicking themselves that they rejected £9million from Fulham last summer.

The 28-year-old’s form has deteriorated and he has put his side under pressure at times trying to play out from the back.

It’s time for Celtic to find a new star centre-back.

Olivier Ntcham

The powerhouse midfielder has only shown in glimpses what he is capable of at Celtic and they should now seriously consider cashing in.

A host of European clubs including Porto are said to be keen on the Frenchman.

Regenerating some cash to invest will have to happen this summer for Celtic and Ntcham could help recoup a sizeable figure.

They’re likely to make profit on the £4.5m they spent on him in July 2017.
