Celtic: Hoops monitoring Osayi-Samuel

Celtic: Hoops monitoring Osayi-Samuel -Celtic

Celtic are closely monitoring Fenerbahce winger Bright Osayi-Samuel, according to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur.

The Lowdown: Osayi-Samuel set to leave

Osayi-Samuel only arrived at the club at the beginning of the year but looks set to move on just six months into his four-and-a-half-year deal.

Reports from Fantik last week touted a €3m (£2.5m) fee for the 23-year-old, who QPR manager Mark Warburton hailed as a  ‘dangerous’ attacker.

Osayi-Samuel has reportedly struggled to adapt to Vítor Pereira’s new system, with Celtic name-checked with an interest last week.

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.

During the 2019/20 season, Osayi-Samuel averaged 2.9 successful dribbles per game in the Championship – Celtic’s highest last season was Odsonne Edouard with 1.6 (WhoScored).

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.
