Celtic have already made their first signing of the summer, bringing back Mohamed Elyounoussi on loan from Southampton. The club are eyeing a new goalkeeper and a striker next, as per the report.
Fletcher, to that end, has emerged as a potential target for the Scottish champions. Addressing these rumours, the Hoops boss, Neil Lennon said (h/t The Scotsman):
“He’s on a long list of players that I am sure a lot of clubs are looking at.”
A veteran of over 500 appearances, Fletcher has 140 career goals to his name. His experience would come in handy for Celtic as they chase an unprecedented tenth consecutive Scottish Premiership title.
It will be interesting to see if the Hoops do act upon their reported interest in the veteran striker or look elsewhere to bolster the attack.
