Report: Celtic Considering Move For Ireland And Brighton Striker

Celtic are reportedly contemplating a move for Ireland U19 striker, Aaron Connolly.

According to the Scottish Sun, Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers, is "keen" on the Galway-born forward who is currently with Brighton.

Connolly joined Brighton in 2016 and has since flourished with the club's U23 side. He has scored 16 times for them this season between Premier League 2 games and the Checkatrade Trophy.

Earlier this month, he was named PL2 Player of the Month for November.

Connolly has already been linked with loan moves from Brighton in recent months, including to Bundesliga side, Hoffenheim.

Manchester United, where he spent time on trial before joining Brighton, and Manchester City are also said to be tracking the 18-year-old's progress.

Sky Sports reported last month that Connolly has been offered a new contract by Brighton but is yet to sign it.

Brendan Rodgers said earlier this month that he is looking to bring in two strikers during the January window. One of those looks likely to be Timothy Weah on a six-month loan deal from PSG.
