Artjoms Rudnevs (again)

Neil Lennon has confirmed plans to secure a new striker for Celtic even if Gary Hooper stays at Parkhead.
And Sportsmail understands Hamburgs Latvian international Artjoms Rudnevs is under consideration as an option.
The player was the subject of a Celtic bid when he quit Lech Poznan last summer but the 25-year-old opted for the Bundesliga instead.

34 games, 26 starts, 12 goals and 4 assists in his first season at Hamburg in the Bundesliga.

Did very well.

Some more quotes from Lennon:

‘We’re doing some work on that,’ Lennon acknowledged. ‘We do have a No 1 striker in mind and, even if Gary stays, we’d still like to bring that player in.’

‘We’re not really making great inroads — but we’re trying our best.’

‘I’d like to have him by Thursday as that would mean he would be eligible for the Elfsborg game.’

‘We’re working really hard on that one — but it’s slow progress at the minute. He’s someone we hope will score goals on a regular basis, the way Hooper has done in the last couple of years. He’s a player we like and a player we’ve liked for a while.’

Yes please but I don't understand why he would want to leave the Bundesliga.

I think Lenny has always wanted Rudnevs because we big 2.5 million the last time.

Hes a powerful striker considering his size. He would score loads here. Would imagine they would want about 5 million at least for him.

Was gutted when we supposedly lost out on him last summer I'd be delighted if we could sign him.

I like that, even if Hooper stays he still wants to bring him in!

I'm liking this ambition. Lennon looking likely to get his top target, brilliant.

Finally some excitement and a good quality striker linked.

It was getting worrying with Kevin Doyle and the likes being the only names mentioned.

dont like this at all, when we miss out on a player, i dont like going back in for them after they've already made a step up, because we lose the most capital this way, would be a bad move imo
