Southampton Set To Make £20 Million Offer to Celtic
Monday, 1st Jul 2024 07:57

News reports from North of the border are suggesting that Saints are preparing a transfer bid to Celtic for midfielder Matt O’Riley, but the Glasgow club are not in the mood for negotiating unless their valuation is met.

Matt O’Riley only signed a new deal at Celtic in October, so Saints will not have a lot of room for negotiation and they are said to be about to offer £20 million whilst Celtic have put a price on his head of £25 million, plus the rumour mill is suggesting that there are other clubs on the horizon interested in the player.

With a name like O’Riley you would imagine that the player would have a background from Celtic’s traditional Irish Catholic fanbase, but the 23 year old was born in London and has been capped by Denmark at international level.

He was signed by Celtic from Milton Keynes Dons in January 2022 just a year after then manager Russell Martin had signed him from Fulham.

So it is now becoming clearer why Saints should be linked.

He has flourished as a player at Celtic and has been a key player in their side, hence the interest from other clubs.

Now it seems ~Saints are interested, but whether they will be willing to pay £20 million is a big question.

6ft 2, 91 games, 25 goals Celtic. Last season 37/18. Plays as a 10, so Stu Armstrong replacement? Can play right side in a 3 MF. So, big goalscoring versatile MF/striker. Just the kind of player we need to stay up.
His mum's Danish. Dad used to live in Farnborough and played in local rock band Straight Shooter in 70s.

Not sure 20 million will interest Celtic. Feel like we’re going to miss out on our main targets to teams like Ipswich and Leicester
