Latest Celtic transfer news on Luis Palma, Kieran Tierney, and Jota developments.

Celtic supporters have been pleading for some transfer news, and last night they finally received it.

In order to find a direct replacement for Jota, the Hoops have made a £3.5million offer for Aris winger Luis Palma, as reported by the Daily Mail. Rangers and the Honduran international have long been associated, but it is understood that no approach was made for Palma this summer by the Ibrox club.

With Watford and Anderlecht also interested in the 23-year-old, Celtic has now formally entered the competition for his signature. According to reports that have surfaced today, a mysterious Saudi club plans to make the attacker an “crazy” offer. When asked about the Parkhead club’s interest today, Brendan Rodgers kept quiet, responding, “I think we need to improve the squad, but there’ll be no confirmation of names. There are numerous names that have been mentioned. We’ll let you know as soon as we sign anyone. “.

Having lost Cameron Carter-Vickers, Maik Nawrocki, and Stephen Welsh to long-term injuries, it is evident that the Scottish champions are searching for a new central defender. Rodgers confirmed that the three will be out for around TWO MONTHS, leaving Celtic with few options at the back going into their match against St. Johnstone on Saturday, with Gustaf Lagerbielke and Liam Scales the only available and healthy center-backs.

Kieran Tierney, an avid basketball fan, is one player who can defend on the left side. After Mikel Arteta told the 26-year-old to train separately from the first-team group, the player’s time at Arsenal is numbered. As the Scotland star tries to leave the Emirates before the deadline on next Friday, Tierney trained separately from the main group today.

It has been reported that KT would be open to making an emotional return to his boyhood club, Celtic, after graduating from their academy this summer. Tierney’s wages and transfer fee, however, would be a significant roadblock in any deal, as Arsenal would be hesitant to approve a loan deal without an obligation to buy. Four years ago, the Gunners paid £25 million to sign Tierney from Parkhead, and they anticipate making back their entire investment plus more.

On three different occasions this summer, Rodgers has been questioned about a potential reunion; the most recent inquiry was made at today’s press conference. “Listen, I would never talk about Kieran outside of the time that I had him here,” he said. He plays for Arsenal, and that is where he is right now.

Kieran will likely want to play for himself, in my opinion. He is no longer a young player and will undoubtedly want to continue playing football. In particular, where he was in his early years with Arsenal, where he occasionally served as the team’s captain. They obviously have a very talented team, and Mikel has done an outstanding job there. However, Kieran will undoubtedly want to go outside and play. “.

The recently deceased Jota is another former Hoops hero who has a very bleak future. After spending two wildly successful years in Scotland, the Portuguese winger made a life-altering move to Saudi Arabia in June. However, Al Ittihad are shockingly prepared to sever ties with their £25 million signing in order to make room for Liverpool superstar Mo Salah.

The mega-rich Saudi club is prepared to offload Jota in an effort to make Salah the highest-paid player in football. League rules only permit eight foreign players per squad, and with names like Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, and Fabinho already on the books, they have no choice but to comply.

Jota could find an unlikely ally in former Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, who is said to have instructed the Al Ettifaq board to put together a loan package.

Earlier reports had suggested that the Saudi champions could allow Jota to leave on a free transfer, with Serie A big spenders Atalanta and Turkish giants Fenerbahce interested. Jota has unavoidably been linked with a quick return to Glasgow’s east end, but that’s just wishful thinking unless he accepts a sizable pay-off or is ready to give up his £10 million tax-free salary.
