Celtic man reportedly emerges as target for Everton and Tottenham

Celtic vs Hearts

As per The Scotsman, Celtic right-back Anthony Ralston, 18, has emerged as a target for Premier League clubs Everton, Tottenham and West Ham.

The Scotland youth international spent upper season on loan with Championship side Queen’s Park Rangers, playing in 10 games, while he was an integral part of the youth team that featured in the UEFA Youth League last season.

Ralston played 11 times for Celtic last term having made his first team bow under Ronny Deila.

The Scottish teenage sensation also appeared for the Bhoys during the UEFA Champions League qualifiers against FC Astana, and has already trained with Scotland senior squad, having been invited to participate in their preparations for their World Cup qualifier against Malta.

Spurs and Everton reportedly sent scouts to watch Ralston during the international break, and he sure impressed as he helped Scotland Under-21s record a shocking 2-0 win over the Netherlands during the midweek.

Boss Brendan Rodgers rate the versatile Scot, who’s able to play on the right wing highly, and despite still not expected to break into his first-team regulars anytime soon, he is seen as one for the future.

Celtic aren’t keen on losing Ralston anytime soon, but it doesn’t appear he would stop attracting the suitors given his very promising potential and rate of development.
