Celtic right-back Hatem Abd Elhamed has has handed a ringing endorsement of Nigerian striker Anthony Nwakaeme ahead of the 2020/2021 season and calls for the signing of the striker.
“I play with some amazing players at Celtic but there was a Nigerian player called Anthony Nwakaeme at my old club. He was unreal,” Hatem Abd Elhamed said in a Twitter Question and Answer session.
Elhamed was referring to their time together at Hapoel Be’er Sheva where he scored 47 goals in three seasons.
In response to his recommendation, the club’s fans took up the gauntlet and asked that manager Neil Lennon sign the Super Eagle.
@Rosstsrvit44 simply said: ” Announce Nwakaeme @ Celtic while @kevibHa51783699 commented tersely with two words: “sign him.”
Nwakaeme has notched up 11 league goals in 27 appearances for Trabzonspor this season.
