Celtic and Fulham want to sign ‘next Jack Grealish’ for free


With Brendan Rodgers replacing Ange Postecoglou as manager, Celtic’s transfer policy was always expected to undergo some change. Interestingly, it did not last summer. But now, we are starting to see signs of that. Over the past few weeks, we have seen the club being linked with a number of players currently plying their trade in England.

Jake Clarke-Salter of Queens Park Rangers is believed to be a key transfer target for Celtic this summer, as is Sammie Szmodics of Blackburn Rovers. And they are not the only ones.

Another player who has been doing very well this season is Callum O’Hare of Coventry City. Having returned from a serious injury earlier in the campaign, expectations were not set very high for the former Aston Villa player, but he has done brilliantly. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 9 goals and provided 4 assists in 30 appearances and 1702 minutes of football.

Celtic are not the only club whose eye he has caught with his performances. As reported by FootballTransfers, Fulham have already spoken to Coventry City a couple of times with regards to the possibility of a deal for O’Hare. He is set to be a free agent at the end of the season though.

Considering the fact that O’Hare came through the ranks at Aston Villa, as well as their similarity in style, it is not hard to understand why the Coventry City player has earned comparisons to Jack Grealish. And he is starting to show his quality on the pitch now as well.

This has been the best season of his career so far. It is also worth remembering that he missed a significant part of it due to injury.

It would make sense for Celtic to sign someone like O’Hare in the summer, especially with doubts around the futures of Matt O’Riley and Paulo Bernardo. The fact that he is set to be available as a free agent makes a deal even more attractive.
