Celtic are reportedly keen to sign Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts.

Brendan Rodgers recently admitted that he would be looking to bring in one or two more attacking players before the transfer window slammed shut. 

One of the players who could arrive at Park head this summer is Patrick Roberts, who enjoyed a previous 18-month fabulous loan spell with the Glasgow club.

According to reports from The Daily Record, Rodgers is “waiting for word” from Manchester City on the availability of the winger.

The player is keen to establish himself under Pep Guardiola, but the Spaniard may have other plans for him.

In fact, Roberts was left out of City’s opening Premier League clash with Brighton on Saturday.

Roberts featured during pre-season for Pep Guardiola's side, playing against Manchester United and West Ham, but it seems Guardiola still wasn't convinced enough with him to include him in the Premier League squad.

With City spending £43million on Bernardo Silva, Roberts’ chances of making it into the first team looks bleak.

Celtic are reportedly assessing the option of bringing him back on loan again, and the 20-year-old exciting winger should consider that option.
