Sampdoria are considering a move for Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie, according to Scott Burns of The Daily Record, and a number of Hoops supporters have been reacting to the news on social media.
The 26-year-old is actually free to talk to clubs outside of Scotland ahead of a pre-contract agreement, as his Parkhead deal expires in January.
Celtic are aware of the latest interest from the Serie A club and are waiting to see if they will make a concrete bid ahead of a possible immediate summer deal. French duo Monaco and Nice, along with Premier League side Burnley, have also been linked with a move, with Christie unlikely to extend his Celtic Park contract.
Celtic fans react
“More importantly the league starts in 3 weeks and for me we’ve yet to sign one first team regular. Where are the brains. Where is the ambition. Where are the targets.”
“Scottish newspaper editors wanting every story to have an Italian angle this weekend.”
“Another Impostor, 4 to go. Maximize the fee ££, but he MUST GO!”
“This ends in Christie signing new contact”
