Celtic: Hoops ready to sell Albian Ajeti

Celtic: Hoops ready to sell Albian Ajeti -Celtic News

Celtic have informed striker Albian Ajeti that he’s free to walk away in the summer, according to Football Insider.

The lowdown

Celtic paid just under £5million to sign Ajeti from West Ham United in August 2020.

In all, he’s made 48 appearances for the Hoops, but only managed to score nine goals in addition to five assists.

This season, the Swiss forward has been limited to just three league starts, though it’s worth noting he did miss two and a half months of action with a hamstring problem.

The 25-year-old is now valued at £2.25million at Transfermarkt and still has around two and a half years left on his £18,000-per-week contract (the fifth-biggest at the club).

The latest

A source at the club has told FI that Ange Postecoglou doesn’t see Ajeti as part of his squad going forward, in what the outlet call a ‘major update‘ before Livingston.

As such, they’ll be receptive to any offers they receive when the transfer window opens.

They add that, at this stage, it looks more likely that he’ll leave on loan.

The verdict

A summer move would be best for both parties.

Celtic, for their part, would surely hope to agree a wage split with any loan club, reducing the financial burden.

They already have the likes of Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis as centre forward options, and the duo have struck a combined 18 goals this season.

Ajeti clearly finds himself well down the pecking order and a move may be just what he needs as he looks to secure a place in the Switzerland squad for the upcoming World Cup.

He was called up in October but missed out in November, suggesting his fate hangs in the balance.

In other news, Celtic could be about to bank seven figures from this transfer.
