Many Celtic fans have been talking about the club’s links with a move for Rennes defender Brandon Soppy.
Journalist Ekrem Konur recently tweeted about Celtic’s chase of Soppy, stating that the Hoops have offered a fee of £3 million for the 19-year-old. The player has a lot of offers on his plate though with Rennes continuing to negotiate a contract extension for him too. It has been suggested that he would be available for a fee of £4.3m.
Should Celtic pay the money for Soppy?
This comes after Fabrizio Romano had reported about Soppy, claiming that the Hoops are interested in him and they’ve opened talks to sign him too.
Konur’s update was relayed on Twitter by Everything Celtic. Many Bhoys fans began talking about this news.
What did Celtic fans make of this news?
“I don’t get it. If they £4.3mill why we bidding £3mill.”
“Just offer what they want why do we always do this.”
Soppy is a product of the Rennes youth academy and he broke into the club’s first-team only last season, playing just nine Ligue 1 games for the side, whilst also playing a couple of times in the Champions League (as per Transfermarkt).
Celtic have just Anthony Ralston as a right-back option right now, which shows that the Bhoys need depth in that position. Soppy is still young and he may still improve in the future, so signing him will be a wise move for Celtic.
