Celtic: Mehdi Ghayedi update emerges

Celtic: Mehdi Ghayedi update emerges -Celtic

The rumours linking Celtic with a move for Shabab Al Ahli forward Mehdi Ghayedi are not true, according to GolBezan’s Arya Allahverdi.  

The Lowdown: Ghayedi links

The Hoops have already added to their attacking ranks this month by bringing in Daizen Maeda. They are also working on making Jota’s loan spell permanent, with sources suggesting Celtic now want a third attacking addition.

Reports earlier in the week claimed that Celtic have had a bid rejected for Ghayedi but plan to return with an improved offer, while they are also linked with Martin Boyle in the search for a third forward signing.

Ghayedi, who can operate anywhere across the front three, is 23 years of age and has scored four goals in 2021/22.

The Latest: Allahverdi’s update

Allahverdi took to Twitter on Monday evening to provide an update on the Iran international.

Following reports of Celtic having an offer turned down, Allahverdi claimed that the rumours are not true.

“Mehdi Ghayedi to Celtic rumours are not true. Confirmed this with his intermediaries.”

The Verdict: Swoop for Boyle?

Ange Postecoglou revealed last month that he is happy to scout the Iranian market when it comes to transfer targets, but it seems as if the links to Ghayedi may simply be the media putting two and two together from the manager’s revelation.

Celtic look keen to sign another wide forward, though, with another player linked being Hibernian’s Boyle. Hibs are braced for offers from the Hoops for the Aussie, so perhaps he could be a smarter target.

Boyle, like Ghayedi, can also play anywhere across the front three and has contributed to 60 Scottish Premiership goals at Easter Road – the Hoops would surely have a proven quantity in the division.

Celtic are yet to make a Scottish Premiership addition under Postecoglou, so now may be the right opportunity with Boyle to strike a nice balance within their summer and winter arrivals.

In other news: Celtic now close to another signing; may be finalised in the coming days.
