Celtic are closely monitoring Fenerbahce winger Bright Osayi-Samuel, according to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur.
The Lowdown: Osayi-Samuel set to leave
Osayi-Samuel has reportedly struggled to adapt to Vítor Pereira’s new system, with Celtic name-checked with an interest last week.
Would Osayi-Samuel be a great signing for Celtic?
The Latest: Loan to buy?
According to Konur, who posted on Twitter on Monday, both Celtic and Rangers are closely monitoring the Nigerian.
He claimed that a temporary offer may come with an option to purchase Osayi-Samuel.
The Verdict: Sign
Ange Postecoglou still wants to sign another winger, and Osayi-Samuel could be another piece in fixing Celtic’s attacking issues over the last 18 months.
On that basis, having a man who is capable of beating a full-back with ease could prove to be an excellent piece of business in the long run, and a loan with an option to buy could be sensible by Dom McKay, offering Postecoglou a genuine one-on-one threat on the flanks.
