Manager confirms he wants to complete Chelsea transfer for "what you would call a number 10"


Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers says he wants to sign a big talent who is "what you would call a number 10".

Recent reports have claimed that the former Liverpool manager is referring to Chelsea's Charly Musonda.

Rodgers was speaking after the club secured the services of 19-year-old Kundai Benyu on a four-year contract.

"That is Kundai and Jonny Hayes with us now, but I still want to add to the squad," Rodgers is quoted as saying by The Sunday Post.

"We have another one, a player of substantial pedigree and quality, who we hope can get in very soon.

'He is young but he is a big talent who has got experience.

"If we can close the deal out, it will be for good money. He is what you would call a number 10.

"We have players who can play there, but it's about getting pace and power and also another one that can make the last pass.

"I felt that was something from last season that I wanted to add. We are hopeful we can get it done.

"It has been six months in the making, and Celtic have been great in trying to make it happen.

"There's no timescale or percentage on it. When it's done, it's done."
