Italian clubs are ready to make move for Celtic youngster

Celtic’s quest for the historic 10IAR promised to be a celebration of the club’s decade of dominance but has turned out to be a nightmare instead. The club find themselves 20 points behind the Rangers and there is virtually zero chance of them lifting the league title at the end of the season.

It is clear that the club needs to undergo a complete overhaul in the summer. Peter Lawwell has already been confirmed to be leaving after a 17-year run and Neil Lennon is also expected to be shown the exit door. A number of key players are also expected to leave for more lucrative leagues.

As a result, expect to see a very different Celtic team next season. What is not helping in that cause though is the fact that they continue to lose promising youngsters left, right and centre.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Italian clubs are very interested in signing teenage goalkeeper Vincent Angelini, who is currently playing for the Hoops’ youth sides and signed his first professional contract with the club back in 2019:

The feasibility of the deal with Southampton, Everton and Manchester United linked, in Italy it is on the table of many clubs including Lazio, Atalanta and Milan but not only. Angelini would like to try the Italian experience and land in his homeland. Ready to leave Celtic, as a free transfer opportunity.

Celtic continue to lose promising youngsters to European giants

This is certainly not a promising sign for the club, who continue to lose one player after the other to European giants. Liverpool recently swooped in for another youth goalkeeper Liam Hughes. In the recent past, they have also lost Liam Morrison and Barry Hepburn to Bayern Munich, while Josh Adams decided to move to Manchester City.

Not too long ago, Celtic were viewed as a perfect place for young players to develop and gain some European experience before moving to European giants.

This reputation has taken quite a hit in recent times though. It has become increasingly difficult to break into the first-team, with Neil Lennon opting to stick with the tried-and-tested instead of giving youth a chance. And the club also have not qualified for the UEFA Champions League for three straight seasons, which makes them a far less attractive option for youngsters.
