I am really, really intrigued to see who - and how many - we sign this season. 
 

Lots to be done.

Some of the names touted just now are as expected though Doig, McCann, Hickey, Nisbet.

Few suggestions we may try raid a few Bournemouth for the likes of Steve Cook & Begovic.

Massive summer and needs to be done right

Then a purported gangster that runs nightclubs got similar treatment to what PL did a few days ago.

Is he a gangster? I can't find anything on that. If so then my couple of visits to Rogano funded crime. Seems like it's shut down now though.

Quite a bit of word by mouth rumours about him aye, might be jealousy I suppose but given the situation it’s easy to believe.

 

Although the possibility that some moron has decided it’s time for a purge and is going after affluent businessmen is also a possibility.

Begovic would be an excellent signing.

I agree doubly so as he’s out of contract I believe

You are still in touch with Ivan Toney. Whilst it looks inevitable he will join someone like West Ham or Spurs (or possibly Arsenal), the lad only wants to move for first team football. He really likes the way Celtic have treated him over the past year or so, constantly kept in contact with him. 

As for Begovic, I am not convinced. He looked very good at Stoke, but that move to Chelsea killed him.

I wasn’t aware of that all, I assumed we would have missed our opportunity with him due to just how outstanding he has been this season that a premier league move would be inevitable. He would be a sensational signing if we could make that happen.

Ivan Toney just broke the goal scoring record in the Championship and will be joining someone for around £15M-£20M+.

Celtic will not be able to meet that kind of transfer fee given the other positions they need to fill.

I don’t think 15-20 mil would be out of reach as essentially it’s just re-investing the fee we will get for Edouard so it’s essentially a swap deal.

All of this ofc depends how much Howe will be backed as you say we have a lot of positions needing 

However in saying that surely he is destined for the Premier League as he’s been superb

You need to remember though that 40% of any fee received for Edouard is due to PSG so there would still need to be a significant outlay regardless. I just can't see it happening realistically.

If you look at the two most recent sales Brentford made to EPL teams for reference, Ollie Watkins went to Aston Villa for £30M and Said Benrahma went to West Ham for £20M. Toney would command a similar fee after the season he has just had. I just don't think that's something anyone in Scotland can compete with.

I think he’s destined for Premier League anyway, being honest he’s probably a class above what we could attract at this time, we had the opportunity and missed it so I doubt we will get a second chance however what a coup if we could.

With Harry Kane now making noises about moving I wouldn’t  be surprised to see someone like Spurs move for him as I doubt they will be attracting the very best especially if they miss out on Europe

Obviously he is most likely going to be joining a Premiership club, but he has been really impressed with the way Celtic have conducted themselves in the past 12 months or so. He is reluctant to join West Ham, Spurs look like a probable move with the news on Kane. 

He is desperate to play international football, for England or Jamaica, so he knows he needs to be playing first team football. 

I doubt he will make the move up North, but thought it was worth posting. I think after this season especially there is obviously this impression that Celtic are a complete basket case, but from what I've been told, they have acted incredibly well towards the lad. To the point the club sent him some piece of Celtic memorabilia when he broke the Championship goal scoring record the other week.

This just sounds like an intern sending flowers to the 10/10 bird in their work while she is busy getting rattled in the toilets by the company director.

I don't think Ivan Toney is getting rattled by anyone imo.

Its certainly an unusual thing for us to do, certainly makes me wonder why however if we have an opportunity to grab someone of that quality then we have to break bank especially if its also working in the players interest by giving him first team football.

If Kane goes it keeps Toney in London and obviously they will pay him top dollar, suppose the only question about that i is anyone in the current climate willing to pay the ridiculous sum Daniel Levy would ask for Kane?

Either way i was completely unaware of this so thanks. Will keep my eye on this one for sure

Ivan Toney won’t sign for Celtic. The opportunity was there 12 months ago and Hammond and Lennon chose to spend the money on Ajeti.

Toney’s stock is really high down south at the moment and he’s only 25. He’ll be EPL bound if he chooses to leave Brentford I’m afraid.

Him and Klimala were absolutely baffling signings. Neither I think are bad players for this level but totally not suited for our way of playing. The same could be said for Duffy at the other end.
