Celtic: Fenerbahce expecting Hoops bid for Osayi-Samuel

Celtic: Fenerbahce expecting Hoops bid for Osayi-Samuel - Celtic

Fenerbahce are expecting to receive an offer from Celtic for winger Bright Osayi-Samuel, Fotospor report.

The Lowdown: Osayi-Samuel links

Osayi-Samuel was heavily linked with a move to Parkhead before he joined his current employers in January on a permanent deal from Queens Park Rangers.

The 23-year-old was labelled as a priority target for Neil Lennon last December, however, Celtic’s only winter window addition was Everton’s Jonjoe Kenny on loan.

The winger, described as ‘dangerous’ by Mark Warburton last year, was linked with the Hoops again last month after struggling in Turkey, scoring just once in 19 appearances for the Super Lig side.

The Latest: Fotospor claim

Fotospor shared a story on Osayi-Samuel on Monday morning. The Turkish outlet suggested that the Nigerian was set to be offered in a swap deal for Monaco’s Henry Onyekuru.

However, Fenerbahce are expecting to receive offers from Celtic, Rangers, and English Championship side Fulham.

The Verdict: A gamble

Osayi-Samuel has already made 109 appearances in the Championship during his career but has been hit and miss in recent years, so he could be risky addition.

As mentioned, he’s netted just once for Fenerbahce and was their sixth-worst rated performer last season for players who played more than 10 games, as per WhoScored.

However, he’s capable of playing on either flank and if he can get back to his form shown in the 2019/20 campaign, he would surely catch the eye in Scotland with that versatility also a boost for the manager.

The wide man was involved in 14 second-tier goals during that season, winning QPR’s Goal of the Season and Supporters’ Young Player of the Year awards.

Should the Hoops have their hearts set on bringing Osayi-Samuel to Scotland, they could do with getting him in as soon as possible, especially with a Champions League qualifier a week away.
