Report: Celtic eye a move for West Brom midfielder Rekeem Harper

Celtic FC News: Celtic are eyeing up a move for West Bromwich Albion midfielder Rekeem Harper, according to Daily Record.

The 19-year-old is out of contract this summer and also being watched by Premier League giants Tottenham.

Furthermore,  Harper and his representatives were present in Scotland on  Sunday to witness the Hoops lift the Premiership title.

Player stats

The English teenager progressed through the youth ranks at the Hawthorns and soon broke into the first-team.

He then spent a short loan spell with Balckburn Rovers and returned to his parent club last year.

As far as this season is concerned, Harper has made 17 appearances in the Championship this season, racking a goal and an assist, mainly as a starter.

However, the talented English teen staggered in the crucial phase of the Championship, eventually receiving stick from the fans for his lacklustre display.

Rakeem has earned 10 caps for the England U-19 side.

Why should the Celts move for  Harper?

Harper is a highly talented midfielder, who possesses great physical attributes and a knack of making long-range passes.

While it is difficult to beat the likes of  Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and skipper Scott Brown, Harper could still be useful as a back-up player.


As the Baggies failed to secure promotion to the Premier League, there are big chances for the Hoops to persuade Harper to move to Celtic Park.
