Celtic: Bhoys set to offload two big names in summer overhaul

Celtic: Bhoys set to offload two big names in summer overhaul -Celtic

Celtic are set for a huge summer overhaul at Parkhead as they plan to cut over £30,000 per week from the club’s wage bill, reports have claimed.

Two bumper summer sales

The 2020/21 campaign will be a year that the Bhoys will want to put behind them as soon as possible. Neil Lennon’s side are currently 18 points behind arch-rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership and chances of winning an unprecedented 10-in-a-row look highly unlikely.

On top of this, the club revealed that they had made a £5.9m pre-tax loss in their half-yearly results due to matches being played behind closed doors.

There's no way you can name all ten obscure Celtic players! First up, who is this?

As a result of this, Football Insider revealed that Celtic plan to take a whole new approach by reconstructing the current squad next summer, regardless of whether Lennon is still in charge or not.

The report added that high-profile names like striker Odsonne Edouard and centre-back Kristoffer Ajer will be two of the players shown the door in what could be a cost-cutting exercise. The duo could be followed out the Parkhead exit door by the likes of Olivier Ntcham, Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton too.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

It will be a great shame for the supporters to see two players that have had such an impact at Parkhead over the years leave the club – Edouard has played 157 games and scored 80 goals, while Ajer has donned the Hoops jersey on 165 occasions.

Both Edouard and Ajer have been linked with big-money moves to top clubs and there is only so much time that the Hoops could resist the temptation of selling.

We think that this could be the summer where both depart – and make way for fresh, young faces to take the club forward for the long-term.
