There are numerous reports stating that Celtic have missed out on Albian Ajeti with the West Ham player seeing his future elsewhere, this seems credible as terms were reportedly agreed and a medical booked however he hasn’t shown up.

There is talk that the deal has been hijacked by West Brom.

This beckons the question as to whether Celtic actually need another striking option, Klimala scored twice against Hibernian earlier in the week and Griffiths looked in fine form.

The major issue will, of course, be if Edouard is sold, with an extra-long transfer window you cannot blame Lennon looking for cover early.

However, when trying to attract a player short on playing time to the club to come and fight his place among Edouard, Griffiths, Klimala and Bayo it is a big ask.

The last option of course for Celtic s to splash the cash on Ivan Toney, a man who is reportedly keen on a move to Paradise but with his club Peterborough holding out for a fee in excess of 10 million pounds it looks prohibitive.
