Celtic are reportedly eyeing a move to sign Motherwell striker Lee Erwin this summer.

According to The Sun, Celtic will make a move for Motherwell striker Lee Erwin at the end of the season, with a change in their transfer policy on the horizon.

The Bhoys will end the season with two trophies to their name, having won the Scottish Premiership as well as the Scottish League Cup, giving Ronny Deila a promising first campaign as Celtic manager.

Now, fans will be expecting more of an impact in European competitions, with Celtic once again qualifying for the preliminary rounds of the Champions League.

In order to be more of a force on the continent, Celtic may need reinforcements - but The Sun report that the Bhoys will alter their transfer policy this summer.

Almost a year ago, Celtic brought in a number of foreign players; Aleksandar Tonev, Mubarak Wakaso and Stefan Scepovic all arrived, but the trio have made little impact.

That failure now has Celtic looking to bring in Scottish players instead, according to The Sun, having seen Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong impress since joining from Dundee United in January.

As part of this new strategy, the report states that Celtic could look to bring in Motherwell striker Erwin, who has scored four goals in his last six games.

The 21-year-old, who stands at 6ft 2in tall, has been with Motherwell since the age of 12, and has this season emerged in the first team at Fir Park.

With Celtic now seemingly looking to bring more Scottish players to the club, Erwin is reportedly on their radar - and his great form of late suggests he could have a bright future ahead of him.
