Celtic in shock £3.5m transfer link with Rangers ‘target’

As first reported by the Daily Mail, Celtic have launched a £3.5million move for Aris Thessaloniki winger Luis Palma. The Honduran international has been heavily linked with rivals Rangers this summer and was viewed as a potential replacement for Ryan Kent.

However, Celtic are also thought to be looking for a winger themselves following Jota’s move to Saudi Arabia and look to have joined the race for the 23-year old. Other clubs across Europe, including EFL Championship side Watford and Anderlecht of the Belgian Pro League, have also been linked.

Per a report from Football.Scotland, Ianis Hagi could be on his way to Trabzonspor with initial contact reportedly made between Rangers and the Turkish Super Lig side. The Romanian attacker is apparently unhappy at his current place in the Ibrox first team under Michael Beale and has always looked likely to leave Glasgow this window.
