Paris Saint-Germain youngster and United States international Timothy Weah is emerging as the striker that could be brought into to solve Celtic’s goalscoring.
The Hoops are in the market for a striker and Weah appears to be the man that they have turned to ahead of the January transfer window.
The highly-rated youngster is keen to leave PSG on loan to get some game time under his belt and Celtic could be the perfect place for him.
We’ve taken a closer look at the striker to find out everything there is to know.
Weah is an 18-year-old striker who stands at exactly six foot tall.
He was born in New York and began his footballing career out in the States.
He plays primarily as a striker, but has also been known to play out wide and is capable of playing on either wing.
It has been well documented that Weah is the son of former Milan and PSG striker George Weah.
His father enjoyed an incredible career with spells in Italy, England and France.
Timothy has immediately drawn comparisons to the former Balon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year, but he is looking to make a name for himself in the game.
Club career so far
Weah began his youth career in the United States and was eventually snapped up by New York Red Bulls.
At the age of 13, his father arranged to have a trial with Premier League side Chelsea, after maintaining a good relationship with his former side.
However, despite training with the Blues and spending time in London, Weah did not sign for Chelsea.
After moving to France, Weah would go on to join Paris Saint-Germain and it is here where he is working his way through the ranks.
He has been catching the eye with his performances in the UEFA Youth League in recent years and is now looking to break into the senior game.
He made his first appearance for the Ligue 1 giants back in March, coming off the bench against Troyes AC.
International career so far
As a youngster, Weah had a big decision to make early. He was eligible to represent the United States, France, Liberia and Jamaica.
He opted to go with the US and was involved within their U14 set from 2012.
After making his way through the ranks at an international level, Weah was handed his senior debut back in March 2018.
By doing so Weah would go to become the first player born in the 2000s to earn a senior cap for his country.
He featured in a 1-0 win over Paraguay and has since cemented himself as a regular.
Who else is interested?
Weah is not short of suitors after announcing his intention to leave PSG on loan.
Keen to get some game time under his belt, clubs are scrambling to secure his signature.
Celtic are known admirers, while Amiens are also trying to convince him to remain in France.
Strasbourg and Angers were also keen over the summer, while there is also believed to be interest from clubs in England and Germany.
