Celtic in advanced talks to sign Premier League wizard

Lennon

Celtic's summer window could be an extremely busy one.

The future's of Odsonne Edouard and Kristoffer Ajer are very much up for debate with both player's linked away. 

However, what happens to Mohamed Elyounoussi and Fraser Forster will also be a keen discussion point.

Neil Lennon has made it clear that he wants to keep the two players but Elyounoussi is someone who could well break their transfer record. 

Either way, if Lennon signs the Southampton duo and manages to tie the likes of Edouard down - it could end up being an expensive window for the Hoops.

Another expensive signing could fall in the form of a Premier League winger.

With Elyounoussi potentially arriving too, it's clear Lennon wants to improve that area of the field, but a recent link could mean a sizeable upgrade on the Norwegian.

Fraser

According to an exclusive from the Fitbaw Gospel, the Hoops are eyeing up an audacious swoop for Ryan Fraser.

The Bournemouth winger has made it no secret that he wants a move elsewhere and after not signing a new contract, will leave at the end of the month on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old has been linked with various Premier League clubs and if he joins the Bhoys, will set them back a considerable £40,000 in wages. That's a far cry from the previous £100k it was stated he wanted, but he'll still become Celtic's highest-paid player.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

This would be a considerable coup for Celtic who are now eyeing ten titles in a row.

Although Fraser is Scottish, he has been rumoured with switches to Tottenham and Arsenal, two teams clearly playing at a level above to the Hoops.

Fraser

Though, if he does arrive, he would be a huge upgrade on Elyounoussi.

The Norway international may have scored six more goals than Fraser this season, but it's hard to ignore what the tricky winger conjured up last term.

At one stage, he was ahead of Eden Hazard for assists as the Cherries wideman racked up 15 in all competitions.

It was a considerable tally but even if he's struggled to replicate that this campaign, it's evidence of a player with immense quality.

At the age of 26, he is about to enter his prime years so signing him on a free transfer would be superb business from Lennon and Nick Hammond.

Providing no top-six club comes in for Fraser, then reportedly, he'll be on his way to Parkhead. Watch this space.
