'Get it done early': Some Celtic fans ecstatic after hearing who Postecoglou reportedly wants to buy
Celtic fans have been discussing the report linking the Hoops with Kevin Nisbet.
New Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou sealed his first signing on Thursday, bringing Osaze Urhoghide to Parkhead.
Now, the Bhoys are looking for more new recruits ahead of their Champions League qualifiers.
And the Daily Mail claims the Bhoys have set their sights on Nisbet.
The high-flying Hibernian striker scored 18 goals and claimed eight assists in all competitions last season.
Celtic are apparently begun trying to establish how much it would cost to bring the 24-year-old to Parkhead.
Hibs are reportedly holding out for £4million and, though they have no need to sell, are open to discussions.
Somewhat unexpectedly, Celtic extended Leigh Griffiths’ contract on Thursday.
However, some Hoops fans think Postecoglou could look to use Griffiths as a makeweight in a deal involving Nisbet.
Griffiths to Hibs on loan + cash for Nisbet should be offered straight away. Get it done early— Jamie (@Jamie67_) July 2, 2021
Good finisher, good work rate👌 could thrive at a team that technically should create a lot of chances lol— jamie (@TheCelticKiwi10) July 2, 2021
Definitely worth a chance, will improve playing at a better team, only 24! better than signing another Klimala/bayo— Micko (@fluffybasket) July 2, 2021
See if I’m being perfectly honest, I think Nisbet is good enough to start for Celtic.— Ryan Fitzsimons (@RyanStevenF) July 2, 2021
We were incredibly lucky to have players the quality of Dembele and Edouard consecutively, it’ll be hard to match that. We need to manage our expectations. Nisbet is a goalscorer.
Correct mate about time we started looking at the talent in Scotland and lower league England. Most of these guys know the league and have played on it season after season.— Craig Williamson (@CraigWilliamso9) July 2, 2021
Kevin Nisbet has managed 75 goals in all competitions in the past three seasons playing for Raith, Dunfermline and Hibs.— Ryan McGinlay (@TheRyanMcGinlay) July 2, 2021
It’s an absolute no-brainer for me.
Chuck Leigh Griffiths in as part of the deal and I’ll be ecstatic! https://t.co/iSmQU5LRBi pic.twitter.com/wQHEZ3uDkv
He will be a quality signing. Something tells me they have gave LG that contract extension and they might use him as part of the Nisbet deal— Gerard Green (@GerryGreener31) July 2, 2021
As well as Celtic, other clubs are apparently eyeing Nisbet including Birmingham, Nottingham Forest, Swansea, Brentford and Krasnodar.
Nisbet is set to return to pre-season training this weekend after featuring for Scotland at Euro 2020.
