Celtic: Devlin confirms Kevin Nibset interest

Celtic: Devlin confirms Kevin Nibset interest -Celtic

Kieran Devlin has confirmed Celtic’s interest in Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet.

The Lowdown: Player-plus-cash reports

Celtic signed Josip Juranovic from Legia Warsaw on Saturday, however, that wasn’t the only transfer development regarding the Hoops.

Reporter Peter Martin revealed that Celtic are keen on Nisbet and are prepared to offer Hibs Leigh Griffiths plus cash for the £52,000-a-year forward.

Georgios Giakoumakis is another forward seemingly on Dominic McKay’s radar and Devlin addresses links to both on Wednesday.

Would you take Nisbet at Parkhead?

Yes, in a heartbeat!

The Latest: Devlin claim

Devlin, Celtic’s correspondent for The Athletic, shared an in-depth piece on where the Hoops need to strengthen Ange Postecoglou’s squad.

When it came to forwards, he said that the club’s interest in Giakoumakis could be due to a possible Odsonne Edouard departure or a lack of faith in Albian Ajeti and Griffiths.

Devlin then went on to add that the Hoops have a longstanding interest in Nisbet, who was described as ‘excellent’ by Ally McCoist.

The Verdict: Room for two?

Should Celtic agree personal terms to sign Giakoumakis and then part ways with Edouard, it would be interesting to see if the club would consider another attacking addition.

Postecoglou could end up having Giakoumakis, Ajeti and Griffiths as centre-forward options, and with Nisbet a long-term target and Griffiths not featuring, they may well look to get the Hibs man through the door.

If they decide to do so, McKay will need to act fast, as there are just six days remaining in the window.
