Celtic all of a sudden have a fight on their hands to sign Cameron Carter-Vickers, with a fresh claim confirming that numerous Premier League clubs now want to sign him.
The Lowdown: Celtic in advanced talks
The 24-year-old has enjoyed a superb season for the Hoops, arriving on loan from Tottenham last summer and proving to be a vital member of the defence.
Celtic are keen on making the centre-back’s temporary move a permanent one this summer, with some reports even claiming the deal is ‘expected‘ to go through after an American source revealed advanced talks, but a potential hurdle has now appeared.
The Latest: PL clubs could scupper move
“Cameron Carter-Vickers is attracting plenty of interest. Fulham & Southampton are the latest to join the race but the likes of Crystal Palace, West Ham & Wolves are looking too. Celtic obviously keen but pull of Premier League football is an issue.”
The Verdict: Major stumbling block
The lure of the Premier League is always great for players, considering it is widely thought of as the most entertaining and competitive league in the world.
The key to this whole situation is how happy Carter-Vickers is at Celtic and if he is willing to ignore interest from south of the border, where more money could potentially be on offer.
Hopefully, the American sees a positive future for himself at Parkhead and regaining the title this season could play a huge part in his decision, with Champions League football sealed in the process.
