Some Celtic fans have been talking about the club’s links with a move to sign Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was recently talking to the Sun. He also talked about the future of Ibe at the Vitality Stadium. He revealed that the club isn’t handing the former Liverpool player a new contract. The Cherries boss said that while he doesn’t have regrets about signing Ibe, he is sad that it ‘didn’t quite happen’ for the player at Bournemouth.

Starting with an easy one: which Italian club did Nakamura join Celtic from?

The report went onto mention Celtic’s interest in signing Ibe. A report from the BournemouthEcho also relayed interest from the Hoops.

A Celtic-related page called CelticBible relayed this report from the BournemouthEcho and asked fans about whether they’d take Ibe at Parkhead. A couple of Celtic fans flocked to this and said they’d like to see the club sign Ibe.

Should Celtic sign Jordon Ibe?

Stay away from him

Stay away from him

Ibe has been at Bournemouth since the summer of 2016, when he had arrived from Liverpool. But since then, the Englishman has contributed to only 14 goals in 92 appearances in all competitions for the Cherries. This season, he has made only four appearances in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).

Many Celtic fans feel that he doesn’t score enough, while others talked about his wage demands.

Some fans even point to some of Ibe’s disciplinary issues. Recently, he had breached lockdown rules to get a haircut done. Before that, he was fined for crashing his car into a coffee shop.

This shows that apart from having a low goals output, Ibe also has disciplinary issues to deal with. In that sense, staying away from signing him might be a good idea for Celtic.
