We have been given a price for Mohamed Elyounoussi and it is beyond reasonable for a player earlier branded as ‘Bambi on ice’ by skeptical Soton fans.
Fraser, on the other hand, has been the topic of choice among Celts worried about a now scotched return clause, what has also been reported is that Celtic insisted on a clause to buy the hero of Rome.
With today’s reports suggesting 8-10 million pounds is enough to sig Mo, surely we should be looking at bargaining with the reported sell-on clause for Fraser.
The opportunity is there to buy both players and maybe even knock a few quid off the price, Celtic and Soton have good relations and it isn’t an impossible idea to think we could pick the two up for closer than 15m than 20m.
Forster adds steel not just to the goalmouth but the defensive line, Mohamed Elyounoussi is a player who is improving before our eyes, his presence on the ball frightens defenders domestically and in Europe and he would be an amazing acquisition for Celtic.
We are a club which has a set financial outlook, buy them cheap and unknown, build their profiles and then sell the for a fortune.
I won’t depress you by naming those who have followed that path lest to say that a former Newcastle reserve keeper was one of them.
But if we are to convince our stars like Calmac, Ajer, Edouard and Ntcham to stay and build this team into not just a Scottish but European force, we can’t let players like this leave.
It is time to show intent, it is time to sign a favourite son back and a player discarded by fans and club alike to the Hoops long term, their value will never decrease from here after all.
