Celtic youngster Vincent Angelini has been linked with the likes of AC Milan, Juventus, Lazio and Manchester United in recent months.
However, it is Premier League strugglers Brighton who are now making a serious attempt to snap up the 17-year-old goalkeeper in quite the turn of the events considering the massive names mentioned above.
According to the Daily Record, Angelini has ben invited to train with the Seagulls and is waiting to be given the green light by the Hoops.
Angelini snubs new Celtic deal
The report claims that the shot-stopper has turned a new deal at Parkhead and looks set to quit the club.
Celtic will be due a compensation fee, should Angelini leave. Brighton want to see the teenager train with their own development squad before agreeing a fee with the Hoops.
Should Celtic sign a new goalkeeper this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
Although the club are looking to land some of the UK’s top young talent ahead of the summer window, the number of teenagers heading the other way appears to be a concern.
Another young goalkeeper in Liam Hughes left Celtic for Liverpool earlier this year, and attacking starlet Karamoko Dembele also looks set for a Parkhead exit this summer.
It appears as if Angelini will be the latest to call time on his young career in Glasgow, and a move to the south coast with Brighton could well materialise, should he impress on trial.
