Celtic interested in signing Christian Atsu

Published on: 17 September 2020

According to reports, Scottish Champions Celtic are very keen on signing Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu this summer. 

Atsu has fallen out of favor with Newcastle manager Steve Bruce. Bruce stated that although he likes the work ethic of Atsu, he is not in his plans for the season and hinted that he should find a way out of the club.

The 28-year-old struggled for playing time last season and Celtic seemingly wants to offer him a way out. It is unknown whether a formal bid has been submitted but the reports have indicated that Celtic are very interested in taking him to Scotland.

It will be interesting to see if Celtic gets a deal done for Atsu.
