The £2.8 million deal bringing 19-year old Ivorian midfielder Kouassi Eboue to Celtic might be confirmed at any moment, as several media outlets report. Touted as the “next Wanyama”, Celtic fans should certainly be excited about this transfer move.
The Ivorian midfielder has only appeared 19 times for Russian side Krasnodar this season, though he has shown plenty of skill.
This goal highlight’s Eboue’s impressive acceleration and work rate, as his dedication to maintain pressure on the ball leads to a goal.
This longer highlight video demonstrates Eboue creating through passes, attacking the ball, scoring, and simply man-handling the opposition.
Eboue will bring much needed options off the bench in the midfield for Brendan Rodgers, and Celtic fans should be hopeful to see whether the Ivorian youngster can replicate what Wanyama accomplished at Celtic. Whether his success in Russia translates to success at Celtic is yet to see, but the highlights at least show Eboue as a non-stop dynamo.
