Celtic ‘make contact’ with Premier League top club over fantastic 26 goal striker transfer

Celtic has reportedly initiated contact with Wolverhampton Wanderers regarding the potential signing of striker Fabio Silva. The Hoops are said to have reached out to the Premier League side to discuss the forward’s availability. Silva, who joined Wolves in the summer of 2022, has recently been on loan at Anderlecht and PSV Eindhoven. In the current season, he has made 10 appearances for Wolves, netting once in the League Cup.

Celtic’s interest in Silva is seen as a move by manager Brendan Rodgers to bolster the squad, especially with the Asian Cup approaching. The tournament may lead to the absence of key players Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu, who could be called up to represent Japan and South Korea, respectively.

In a separate development, Celtic has released a statement reaffirming its position on the recent European Super League court ruling. Following the decision in favor of the rebel clubs involved, Celtic emphasized its commitment to staying within the UEFA framework. The statement clarified that the ruling referred to outdated UEFA statutes, amended in June 2022, and does not endorse or approve the so-called ‘Super League’ project. Celtic reiterated its active role within the European Club Association (ECA) framework, expressing dedication to working through the ECA and UEFA to uphold the values of European football. The club emphasized the importance of the strong partnership between ECA and UEFA and highlighted the lack of support for the European Super League within the wider European football community. Celtic pledged to continue promoting the interests and protection of football’s broader family through collaboration with the ECA and UEFA.
