Celtic: Hoops target Aissa Laidouni has confirmed ‘interest’

Celtic: Hoops target Aissa Laidouni has confirmed ‘interest’ -Celtic News

Celtic target Aissa Laidouni is the subject of ‘interest’ ahead of January, according to Ferencvaros CEO Pal Orosz.

The Lowdown: Standout performer

The Tunisian midfielder has recently been out in Qatar representing his nation at the World Cup, where his performances have attracted attention approaching the upcoming winter market.

The Scottish Premiership champions are one of several clubs to have been credited with an admiration for the 26-year-old, who was available for €4m (£3m) prior to the tournament, a number which has now increased following his campaign in the Middle East.

The Latest: Laidouni to Celtic update

Speaking to Sport Radio (via Fussball Transfers and Sport Witness), Orosz confirmed that Laidouni is receiving interest from potential suitors, though no bids have been submitted yet.

“There is interest, but no concrete offers yet. The price for a player of this quality is high.”

The chief further stated that his maestro won’t be a ‘bargain’ transfer and is set to cost at least €10m (£8m) should any club want to prise him away from the top flight of Hungarian football.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Ange Postecoglou is getting down to business early having already signed Alistair Johnston and Yuki Kobayashi in defence, and it appears that he’s now moving his attention further up the field.

Laidouni has six goal contributions to his name across all competitions this season and is a versatile player with the ability to operate in both central and defensive midfield (Transfermarkt).

The Hoops’ stance on paying £8m for their target remains to be seen, but it sounds like an absolute bargain and a fee that the club should pay for someone who will be at the heart of a transfer tug-of-war in the weeks ahead.
