Celtic fans have been reacting to potential news surrounding Norwegian Mohamed Elyounoussi.

The 26-year-old is currently in his second season at Celtic Park having re-joined on loan from Premier League side Southampton in the summer. The versatile winger has certainly been impressive during his time north of the border, scoring 20 goals and providing 12 assists in 53 appearances.

And according to a report from Football Insider, Celtic have their sights set on re-signing the attacker this summer, with the chance to make that move a permanent one now possibly a lot easier, with Southampton reportedly willing to cut their asking price for him from £8-10m to as little as £5m.

News which went down incredibly well with supporters on social media, who were pretty much demanding that the club make the permanent, although some suggested that he might work better with someone else in the dugout:

“If we can get him for 5 million i think we definitely should it’s a bargain he could be class under a new system and a new manager” 

“£5m is a steal for him, will come to life under a new manager”
“Honestly that would be a great piece of business been great this season”
“Absolutely, cannot understand the stick he gets, he’s a class player and at that price would be a steal”
“5 million is a snip”
“5 mill while playing with a new manager I would definitely have him.”
“Steal of the century at £5m, if you disagree you’re no right in the heid. Get Moi under a good manager and watch him pick up top goal scorer and POTY next season. Remember this tweet”
“100% yes . He is better than what we have , and we are unlikely to attract better.”

Has Elyounoussi impressed you this season?

Yes, he's done well

No, he's been average

With Celtic looking to rebuild on such a poor season and mount an effective title challenge on Rangers, they’ll need all the help that they can get, and looking down someone with his production would be a great way to start.
