Celtic beating PL trio to land this £3m Scottish league sensation would be an absolute steal by Lennon

Celtic FC Opinion: Hoops in for David Turnbull – Good move?

According to a report in Daily Record, Scottish treble winners Celtic have enquired about the possibility of signing Motherwell star David Turnbull during this transfer window. English Championship side Bristol City are also in the race. (h/t Daily Record)

In response, Motherwell have slapped a £3m-plus fee on the young player of the year. They have made it clear that the 19-year-old will only be sold if a significant bid is made. Anything less than what they value won’t interest them in letting the player go. (h/t Daily Record)

Turnbull, whose contract expires in the summer of 2021, had a great first senior season for Motherwell. He scored nine goals and supplied five assists in 25 Scottish League appearances, playing as an attacking/central midfielder.

Here’s why Celtic should sign the youngster ahead of other clubs:

Lennon could do with a goalscoring midfielder

In terms of his attributes, the 19-year-old has a very good turn of pace on the ball, can dribble past defenders, has a very good eye for picking out key passes and doesn’t shy away from shooting from outside the box if the opportunity arises.

All in all, the youngster is an impact player in attacking midfield, who possesses the quality to make a telling difference in a particular match.

Celtic shouldn’t hesitate in making a bid for him, simply because they require more creativity and boldness in midfield. While those things don’t get picked out in domestic games, they flatter to deceive in European competition.

Turnbull is still young but the ability and confidence with which he plays football is heartening to see. He is certain to be a star in the upcoming years.
