Celtic aren’t done in the transfer market, Ange Postecoglou has made it clear if the club sees a deal worth doing, they’re flexible enough to go out and get it done.
The manager has spoken about outgoings also, we don’t know for sure how much getting players out the door will impact on who can come in.
The window closes on September 1st at which time the manager and every club up and down Scotland will know exactly what they’re working with until January.
Celtic is being credited with an interest in Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley. The player has been left out of the London club’s official squad list for the new season and now has to find a way out of Stamford Bridge to get game time this term.
GIVEMESPORT reporter Simon Phillip is claiming Celtic along with a host of Premier League clubs are interested in taking Ross away from Chelsea before the transfer deadline.
“With Ross Barkley, he’s got a lot of other clubs interested in him at the moment so it’s not just Everton. He’s got Brighton, Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa and Celtic. So got plenty of options to go to.”
Ross Barkley Celtic Verdict
The former Everton man is reportedly on £100kpw at Chelsea. Any move, even a loan move would have to be subsidised heavily by Chelsea if there was a chance of it happening.
We just can’t see it. Barkley is 28 and will also likely want to stay in the Premier League. If the report is to be believed then he’s got a lot of options to stay down south.
Sometimes mentioning Celtic in a transfer story ups the interest from a readership point of view.
As always, we look at every rumour as well as we can and right now, this deal seems far fetched. A lot of money for a position we’re not short in.
