Celtic are now interested in signing Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet, according to The Daily Mail’s Stephen McGowan.
The Lowdown: Nisbet’s impressive campaign
Nisbet enjoyed a successful 2020/21 season at Easter Road. The 24-year-old scored 18 times and registered eight assists in all competitions, with two of his goals coming against the Hoops.
His displays were rewarded with a place in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad for the European Championships.
The Latest: Nisbet links
According to McGowan, Celtic have now set their sights on Nisbet after announcing a deal for defender Osaze Urhoghide from Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday.
Work has already begun to see how much a potential transfer would cost, with Hibs thought to be holding out for more than £4m.
The Verdict: Wyke or Nisbet?
Another striker who has been heavily linked with a Celtic Park switch in recent weeks is Charlie Wyke.
Wyke, who is now out of contract with former employers Sunderland, wanted Celtic to double his wages on a four-year deal with a multi-million pound signing-on fee.
A move for Wyke has gone quiet in recent days, and perhaps Nisbet would be a smarter option.
He’s four years youngster than Wyke and has experience of scoring goals in the Scottish Premiership.
Yes, Celtic would have to pay a fee for Nisbet and not Wyke, but it could prove to be a wise move, should they decide to do so.
