Celtic are looking to complete the signing of Moi Elyounoussi within the next week on another season long loan according to reports in the player’s home country in Norway.
Tonight, there reports claim Celtic and Real Betis are in a tug of war to sign the winger up for next season. Unless there’s a disparity in the wages offered between clubs, it would come down to the player’s preference.
Moi has spoken before about going back to Southampton to try and prove himself, if the club are so quick to dismiss him then he may feel there’s unfinished business.

The injury half way through the season curtailed the winger’s progress and it would be fantastic if Celtic could land the winger for the ten in a row season.
Moi could provide real competition and provide a creative spark.
Mikey Johnston is the only first team Celtic star in that position right now .
