Celtic fans are hoping that Brendan Rodgers does not make a move for Franco Di Santo.

According to the Daily Mirror, Rodgers has identified Di Santo as a player he would like to bring to Celtic this month.

The Bhoys are believed to be in the market for a striker, as they look to buy cover, in case Moussa Dembele leaves.

Di Santo is a player who Rodgers knows well, as the pair worked together at Chelsea, earlier in their respective careers.

However, Celtic fans are really hoping that Di Santo does not arrive at Parkhead any time soon.

Di Santo’s scoring record of late has not been at all impressive, as he only has four goals in 52 games for Schalke.

If the Italian was to move to Celtic he would be in competition with the likes of Dembele, Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard in the competition for striking places.

Celtic have already made two signings this January, bringing in Marvin Compper and Lewis Morgan.
