Celtic have made an offer for FC Twente midfielder Lindon Selahi, according to a report from Sport Ekspres in his homeland Albania.

The outlet believes a number of clubs are interested in his services this summer but that the Scottish champions have officially made their move.

Twente, however, are said to have rejected the opening offer.


It’s reported they are keen to keep ahold of the talent for next season and would only accept a ‘high offer’ for his services.

That may be beyond the Hoops in the current circumstances.

Selahi has been a regular in his debut Eredivisie campaign, making 25 league appearances to date (Transfermarkt).

Able to play in a variety of defensive and attacking roles, he looks to be a versatile central midfield talent.

The 21-year-old has made a breakthrough at international level too, winning his first cap for Albania against Moldova in October of last year.

He’s the third midfielder to be linked with a move to Celtic in recent weeks.

There have been reports crediting the Hoops with an interest in France-based Haris Belkebla and Rapid Vienna star Dejan Ljubicic.

It seems that Neil Lennon is on the hunt for a new talent to add depth to his options beyond Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, Olivier Ntcham and Ismaila Soro.

On the face of things that might appear to be overkill.

However, with Brown in the twilight of his career, Ntcham a sellable asset and Soro still untested, it’s a prudent approach ahead of the new season.
