Celtic FC are interested in signing Motherwell’s 20-year-old midfielder David Turnbull – according to a report in The Athletic.
David Turnbull is a product of the Motherwell academy and he made his debut for the senior side back in January of 2019. This season though, the midfielder has hardly played any matches due to a knee surgery.
And many pundits think Lennon is looking to sign the 20-year-old since Olivier Ntcham has been linked with a move to Southampton over the past couple of weeks.
Should Celtic FC sign David Turnbull?
This is not the first time Turnbull has been linked with a move to Park Head as the Hoops tried to land him in the summer of 2019 but eventually, the deal did not go through.
But if Celtic FC are serious about bringing him on board then there’s no doubt that Southampton will be able to sign Olivier Ntcham sometime during the summer transfer window.
Ntcham has been a key figure for Lennon’s side this season but as per reports, Celtic are ready to listen to bids for the French midfielder. And right now the Saints are standing in the front of the queue.

Having said all this, there are serious doubts over the fitness of David Turnbull since he underwent a knee surgery in July of last year and has been on the sidelines since February.
As a result of this injury, the 20-year-old has managed to play only two matches in the Premiership this season and we believe the Bhoys should be really careful before signing a player who has just recovered from such a serious operation.
Olivier Ntcham is itching to play for Southampton and if the 24-year-old does move to England in the summer then Celtic will surely make a move for David Turnbull.
