Celtic: Norwich set to make improved Kris Ajer bid

Celtic: Norwich set to make improved Kris Ajer bid -Celtic

Norwich City are set to make an improved bid for Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer, according to Scott Burns of The Daily Record.

The Lowdown: Ajer unhappy

Ajer has made it clear he would like to leave Parkhead this summer, however, the Hoops have actually rejected two generous offers for a player who has just 12 months left on his contract.

Bayer Leverkusen and Norwich have both had bids in the region of £10m turned down, with Ajer unhappy over the way his future is being handled.

The 23-year-old, who was hailed as ‘Cafu-like’ by former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner in 2019, is still wanted by the Canaries.

The Latest: £12m bid

Burns shared a story on Ajer on Sunday evening, claiming Norwich are set to go back in with a renewed offer in the region of £12m.

The Canaries are also willing to include future add-ons included in a deal, with Ajer a long-term target for Daniel Farke’s side.

Should Celtic accept £12m for Ajer?

Yes, all day long!

Yes, all day long!

No, keep him or ask for more!

No, keep him or ask for more!

The Verdict: Sell

It seems as if Ajer is becoming increasingly unsettled in Glasgow and would welcome a move away ahead of the new campaign.

The Hoops are at risk of losing Ajer on a free transfer in January with a potential pre-contract agreement, should his situation remain the same, so it would make sense to accept a £12m offer and reinvest in defensive additions.

Ajer’s Transfermarkt valuation stands at £6.3m, so Celtic could end up receiving more than twice that figure with add-ons in a possible transfer to Carrow Road, a good deal all things considered.
