Despite the flood of goals that Celtic have started the season with more and more supporters are putting a striker at the top of their January Wish List.

Odsonne Edouard is developing rapidly into a quality striker with valid comparisons being made with Moussa Dembele while Ryan Christie reached double figures before September was completed,

Despite the stats and with one eye on the December fixture there appears to be an over reliance on Edouard. Vakoun Bayo has potential but is far from tried and tested while Leigh Griffiths continues to throw up more questions than answers despite a promising scoring burst at the start of the season.

Lawrence Shankland was mentioned last week but was overlooked in the summer when he was available as a free agent from Ayr United.

There is always the internal option with Jonathan Afolabi showing lots of promise in his first couple of reserve outings. Integrating him into the first team squad during high profile matches could be difficult but as Tony Watt proved a few years back sometimes circumstances can look favourably on a young player.

Other names will be mentioned but there is little doubt that when January comes around another striker will be on the menu for Celtic’s scouting team.
