Celtic join Rangers in race for Charlton's Joe Aribo

Celtic join Rangers in race for Charlton's Joe Aribo Celtic have reportedly joined rivals Rangers in monitoring Charlton Athletic midfielder Joe Aribo, according to Goal. The 23-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is yet to agree a new deal with the Addicks. Charlton won’t be eligible to receive a fee if the player rejects a new deal, meaning the Hoops could secure Aribo’s services for nothing this summer. Along with Celtic and Rangers, French outfit Rennes and Premier League side Southampton are also thought to be keeping tabs on the youngster ahead of a possible move.

Celtic target Timothy Castagne has told Belgian media outlet Het Laatste Nieuws that his ‘dream’ is to play Premier League football. Atalanta player Castagne was strongly linked with Celtic in the January transfer window. Gianluca Di Marzio reported that Celtic had a big-money bid rejected for the defender.

Celtic target Timothy Castagne is a wanted man this summer, and according to claims from Italy, ‘several’ Premier League clubs are keen to sign him from Atalanta.

The Belgian has been impressive for his side throughout the season, helping them achieve a strong finish in Serie A and reach the final of the Coppa Italia, where they fell short against Lazio.

Castagne has earned plaudits for his displays and, in doing so, Celtic have been heavily linked with a possible summer move after failing in their January attempts to sign him.

However, it seems they will face plenty of competition for the right wing-back’s signature ahead of next season.

According to a report from Il Mattino, as cited by Calciomercato, Serie A trio Napoli, Roma and AC Milan are joined by a host of Premier League clubs in their admiration of Castagne.

Celtic may be keen to strengthen their options on the right-hand side as they prepare for the 2019/20 campaign, with the 23-year-old seemingly among the players who are being considered.

Man City enter race for Liverpool target Fekir.
Manchester City have reportedly joined the race for long-term Liverpool target Nabil Fekir, ahead of the Frenchman’s inevitable Lyon departure this summer. The World Cup winner was close to moving to Anfield last summer in a deal worth more than £50million, but the transfer fell through at the final hurdle due to the results of a medical. Fekir has confirmed he intends to leave Lyon this summer though, which has seemingly placed some of Europe’s top clubs on red alert. According to Express Sport, Man City have asked the Ligue 1 club to be kept updated about Fekir’s situation over the transfer window.
