According to a report from Sky Sports, Celtic want to sign West Ham striker Albian Ajeti this summer. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The Switzerland international, who earns around £50,000 per week according to Sky Sports, has really struggled to settle at the London Stadium. He moved to the Hammers from FC Basel last summer for around £8 million (BBC).
In fairness to Ajeti, he hasn’t really been given enough chances to prove himself. But when the 23-year-old has played, he has looked well out of his depth at the highest level.
The former Basel man joined West Ham on the back of a decent goalscoring record in Switzerland. And Sky Sports claim that Celtic boss Neil Lennon wants to bring the Switzerland international to Parkhead this summer.
Who knows? Perhaps the striker will be more suited to the Scottish Premiership than he is the Premier League.
With David Moyes in a position where he will probably have to sell before he can buy, Ajeti’s days at West Ham are surely numbered.
And some Hammers fans reacted on Twitter to the report claiming that the Swiss hitman could be on his way to Celtic this summer…
