Postecoglou is now ‘ready to sell’ £5m star to Parkhead


Celtic are open to offers for striker Albian Ajeti this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Antoine-Joseph.

The Swiss international left West Ham two years ago but is struggling to live up to expectations in Scotland.

What is the latest news about Ajeti?

Despite failing to score in his 12 months in the Premier League, the Hoops still opted to bring Ajeti to Parkhead for a hefty fee.

Ajeti had established himself as a proven goalscorer for his boyhood club Basel, but it just didn’t work out in Glasgow.

He first made a strong start to his career at Celtic, scoring five of his first six Scottish Premiership games at the start of the 2020-21 season.

But the 25-year-old would only find the net once more this campaign, and after striking just three times last term, he now has a disappointing record of nine goals in 48 green-and-white appearances.

A hamstring injury forced Ajeti to miss the best part of five months last season, although even when fit he fell down the pecking order which saw him become nothing more than a full-fledged player.

What did Joseph say about Ajeti?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think Celtic are very willing to listen to any offers that come their way and it could be something like a loan with an option to buy.

“It really depends on the fee because Celtic got him for £5m and they would really try to get as much money back as possible.”

What went wrong for Ajeti at Celtic?

When Ajeti first joined Celtic and scored a flurry of goals in his first few months at the club, £5million for his services seemed like a steal.

Although not always a regular starter, Ajeti was playing pretty close every week and showing promising signs under Neil Lennon.

Since his goalscoring spree, however, Ajeti has simply struggled for consistency and shown little to suggest he could be the answer for Celtic up the pitch.

As a result, last season turned out to be a loss for the striker, who played just 552 minutes in all competitions and now appears to have played his last game for the club.
