The 2019-20 season should be seen as a new era of sorts for Celtic, with Neil Lennon arriving as permanent manager for a second time and plenty of transfer activity expected to go down this summer.
Major international tournaments always provide a great chance to scout new players on the biggest stage, and this summer the Copa America takes place in Brazil.
The tournament will showcase all of the well-known South American stars, as well as upcoming talent that clubs with a limited budget, like Celtic, could potentially pursue if they impress.
A potential successor to Craig Gordon in between the sticks and a new central defensive partner for Kristoffer Ajer are two areas that need to be looked at, but there is room to improve elsewhere too.
In this slideshow, we look at players in four positions that Celtic should be looking at during the tournament to strengthen their options following an incredible treble-treble success.
Wuilker Farinez (Venezuela)
Farinez has represented Venezuela at every age level and earned his first cap in 2016 at just 18. His reflexes are jaw-dropping and leadership qualities aged just 21 make it seem like the sky is the limit for him, and he could be the ideal successor to Craig Gordon. Barcelona have been linked with him as they look for a replacement for Jasper Cillessen, which should suggest how could he is.
Christian Zapata (Colombia)
With Christian Zapata’s AC Milan contract expiring this month, the 32-year-old could be an ideal partner for Kristoffer Ajer in the heart of the Celtic defence. It would be a short-term fix, but Zapata would bring bags of quality and experience over to Parkhead in hope of securing more silverware before he hangs up his boots.
Christofer Gonzales (Peru)
‘Canchita’ Gonzales certainly isn’t one for the future, aged 26, but has plenty of qualities that would make him improve Celtic’s current midfield. His main traits are his ability to read the game and work ethic on and off the ball – both would make him a valuable asset for Neil Lennon.
Luis Diaz (Colombia)
The dynamic, left-footed winger is a piece of work on his day and a primary reason for Atlético Junior’s recent success. Earlier this year, it was revealed he had pre-agreement with Cardiff City but since their Premier League relegation, other clubs may be able to pounce. Diaz is full of ambition, and Celtic could provide him with a chance to shine in the Champions League, as well as all-but guaranteeing him silverware.
