Celtic fans generally appear to be behind the idea of a move for Middlesbrough striker Britt Assombalonga.
If Celtic were to commit such a big amount of money to signing the striker it would be a massive statement of intent.
And many Celtic fans are excited by the rumours that the Congolese international could make the switch to Parkhead.

If its true he would be a beast up here— Ryanbhoy8882 (@ryanbhoy8882) July 11, 2019
I saw a lot of him at Forest and Boro, a cracking player on his day but out injured more often than not. If he’s fit long term could easily play in the English Prem.— . (@conradrancid) July 11, 2019
If we can get him on the pitch he’ll could be a great signing.
Definitely looks a player strong as a ox good in the air if you go with YouTube, ☘☘— Brian Oneill (@brianoneill_) July 11, 2019
FIFA might create a rule so him and eddy cannot be on the field at once breaching fair play rules.— Antonio (@ant0niogonzalez) July 12, 2019
His goals to games ratio is decent - he is a unit - could do a job.— bhoysviews (@bhoysviews) July 14, 2019
Britt Assombalonga would definitely take...— CELTIC.OK (@OkCeltic) July 15, 2019
Celtic are in need of a striker and could have a boosted budget if they do sell Kieran Tierney and Olivier Ntcham this summer.
Whether they would put a considerable chunk of their money into signing Assombalonga remains to be seen though.
Assombalonga has hit 28 goals in his last 85 Championship appearances for Boro, but has previously been a very prolific scorer in England’s second tier.
If Assombalonga was brought to Parkhead he would be in competition with the likes of Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths for a starting place.
