Celtic are weighing up whether to revive their interest in Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet, according to reports.
The 25-year-old has been in outstanding form since returning from a serious knee injury, scoring seven times in his last six outings for Hibs.
However, supporters on Twitter are divided over whether Nisbet is good enough for the Hoops. Some believe he possesses less quality than Giorgos Giakoumakis while others claim he’d be a decent backup option:
No chance. No disrespect to him but that’s a downgrade from GG

Yes, depends on the transfer fee tho…not sure he is a £4m player just yet but has the makings of a decent striker and cud shine for us

He'd probably do a job in the league but as a replacement for GG we make our squad weaker Imho, so it's a no from me.

Yes. He's a quality player

To replace GG??

Definitely, would only get better playing for Celtic

Not up to Celtic standards

As some fans have said, a lot will depend on how much Hibs are demanding for the Scotland international. If they are reluctant to sell and slap a high price tag on the player, it may not be a deal worth pursuing.
In terms of alternatives, there are reports suggesting that Celtic could return with another bid for Suwon Bluewings striker Oh Hyeon-gyu, while there have also been links with Gornik Zabrze’s young forward Szymon Wlodarczyk.
