MK ceIt has been a mixed old season for Celtic fans and gaffer Brendan Rodgers, but we put ourselves back at the top of the Scottish Premiership table for the March international break, and this weekend’s encounter could be absolutely pivotal to us staying there.

As the end of the 2023/24 domestic campaign nears, and with fans knowing that Rodgers had expected a bit more business to have been done during the January transfer window, we are also seeing a plethora of players being linked with a potential summer arrival, and one of the latest ones on the rumour mill is Armenian playmaker Eduard Spertsyan. If you like a small flutter and have a Bet365 Bonus Code taking a punt on future transfer action might float your boat.

The 23 year old Krasnodar attacking midfielder has already racked up 25 full international caps for his country, and he has previously been linked with both Newcastle United and Ajax where there was talk of a potential £13 million move being made, but as that interest dried up, his valuation has now significantly dropped if reports are to be believed.

In the reports linking us with now holding an interest in him, there is no speculation as to what we might have to pay but for very understandable reasons his club would have placed a premium on his head when it comes to the Dutch giants and interest from the English Premier League, so whilst he would undoubtedly still be potentially a significant outlay for us as they tried to repeat that trick, we would no doubt be confident that we could get more value for money from the deal.

His pedigree is pretty good despite his age, and he is certainly a fan favourite in the Armenian national side, as having made a very early breakthrough for them, he is also the youngest ever Armenian player to feature in the Champions League, and he scored both home and away for his country when they face Ireland two years ago – and that certainly catapulted his standing in the wider world of football and made him a far better well known name.

The player himself has recently spoken about his future ambitions, and one of those is to clearly secure a move to Europe at some point so he can test himself at a higher level, but he was grounded enough to know that this would only happen if he continued to work hard and impress.

“I like being at Krasnodar, but I want to try to go to Europe while I have the chance, I don’t know what can happen there. I’m confident and I think I can achieve even bigger goals.”

He still has two years left on his existing deal at Krasnodar, but with Celtic having a bit of a record of picking up more unknown players who go on to star for us, he may certainly be a name worth remembering.
