Manchester City Thierry Ambrose could thrive at Celtic

Manchester City striker Thierry Ambrose is making waves in the Eredivisie with NAC Breda and could play for Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The thriving partnership with Manchester City has certainly proved beneficial to Celtic over the years.

Since the commencement of the 2014-15 season, John Guidetti, Jason Denayer, and Patrick Roberts have all had loan spells at Parkhead from the Premier League leaders with huge success.

Swedish frontman Guidetti registered 15 goals during his one season loan spell at Celtic, center-back Denayer was honored with the SPFA Young Player of the Year award the following year and in 2016-17, Roberts was instrumental as the Hoops won an undefeated domestic treble.

But who will be the next youngster from the Etihad to shine in the green and white jersey? Well, Celtic should consider red-hot striker by the name of Thierry Ambrose.

Similar to his namesake Henry, Ambrose is French striker fast on his feet with an eye for the extraordinary. The 20-year-old has always been held in high regard within City’s prestigious academy but it has taken a loan spell at NAC Breda in Holland for him to prove his worth in the first team.

Ambrose has found the net eight times in the Eredivisie this season, which includes an incredible long-range drive in a recent 3-1 loss to Ajax.

With Celtic’s striking options looking a little uncertain, with doubts surrounding the future of Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard not really doing enough to suggest the Hoops should make his loan from PSG permanent for a club-record £7 million, Celtic should bring Ambrose to Parkhead if they plan to do business with City again this summer.

Learning under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers in Glasgow could be the making of a young striker with all the attributes to become a top star.
