As Celtic look to strengthen the squad ahead of the new season, one player that has made it absolutely clear that he intends to leave is Norwegian defender, Kristoffer Ajer.
Ajer is on the radar of English clubs Norwich City and Newcastle and with Bayer Leverkusen in the mix, it seems that Celtic may eventually get a price north of £10m for the stopper.
But there is a new club on the block ready to come and pounce for Ajer.
Reports from Germany say RB Leipzig have a massive £30m burning a hole in their pocket since Liverpool bought Ibrahim Konate from the Bundesliga club just last month and it seem that Leipzig are keen to use that money to bring Ajer to The Red Bull Arena.
Ajer gave an interview with Norwegian television just last week here he confirmed his intentions to depart Paradise,
“There are many rumours, and right now there are only rumours.
“It is clear that something will happen this summer. It is the best for both parties.”
Ajer will be a massive loss to the Hoops but Celtic fans are resigned to losing one of their best players. The only positive they can take is that with clubs from some of the richest leagues in the world looking to spend on him, the likelyhood of a larger than expected transfer fee is in the offing.
And that can only be good news for Postecoglou who will be hoping that he will be allowed to invest all money brought in from the sale, back into the first team!
