    Ones saying he preferred to go to the German club. Maybe not coming here were strong words but we clearly weren't his first option. He would be there if they could pay for him.

    I have seen no such thing in Greek media about this and take that with a big grain of salt. But I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

    The general consensus in Greece is that he wants to play for Celtic under a Greek manager but wants more $$$.

    Thing that concerns me is his goal scoring record, which prior to last season was not very impressive at all.

    Made that point yesterday - why are we entertaining a guy who's preference was to go to WB rather than us????

    Makes me question his ability, his attitude and his sanity...

    We'll have been second choice due to the fact that he wont be guaranteed a start every week. As things stand (if he signs) hes behind Kyogo and Eddy at least.

    At this stage I'd take Edoaurd, who seems less of a gamble and spend the money on a left back

    Even a half arsed Edouard guarantees 20 goals.

    This guy seems like a dumpling tbh

    I don't see any sense in this. Scoring-wise Ajeti has been much more consistent over a longer period of time. And as the Dutch league regularly produces top scorers who are * in any other league you can't even argue that it's better than the Swiss league.

    We might miss out on a late boomer but I take that risk. We won't get rid of Ajeti anyway and he seems more fit, happy and motivated so maybe there's some hope left. If we sign a new striker he has to be a more consistent scorer. And it's anyway not priority with Édouard still here and still no first team left back and left winger.

    Tbf to the guy... Who wouldn't expect Werder to bounce straight back up into the Bundesliga?

    Their relegation was a massive shock, all over Europe, and the player isn't exactly a kid. He's probably had his hopes pinned on playing his "peak years" in one of the best leagues on the planet, for a team regarded as a *big" institution in Germany.

    But, still don't want him.

    His record prior last season, is * pish, and this top scorer lark doesn't impress me as much as it does others

    There's better, and younger out there.

    Wit? That’s like saying Hamburg getting relegated was a shock.

    Na, that was just glorious.

    Maybe not do much of a shock, more of a disappointment.

    I looked at the Bremen squad last night. Recognised a about 2 players.

    I think they could struggle and even if they do get back won't be the same side.

    If he wants more money they he needs to prove he is worth it and not a one season flash in the pan. Sign and if you do well we will give you a new contract. Next summer eddy,griff and ajeti will be gone(if not sooner),if we have learned anything its sign a * replacement before others leave.

    Wish this one would just be done with. Really not fussed for him at all. Would much rather we focused on LW (Lovric please) LB and CB this window as that's where we are lacking options and are literally one injury in any one of they areas away from being totally fkd...

    This guy is not showing any desire to sign for us, we should move on to other targets as he is just wasting our time.
