‘I Nearly Choked On My Frosties There!’ ‘Oh Dear’ Fans On Social Media Laugh Off Reports Of Celtic’s Shock Interest In 24 Year Old

Celtic and QPR are interested in Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu, according to Sky Sports News (via the Scottish Sun). The 24-year-old has been linked with a surprise switch to the Old Firm giants following his performances over the last year.

The TV channel report that the Hoops had scouts watching the forward last season, and have continued to monitor the player at the start of this campaign. Fans on Twitter are highly sceptical about the club’s interest:

Although Ikpeazu is highly unlikely to be a target, there is a case for Celtic delving into the market for another striker in the January transfer window. Odsonne Edouard is having to take a lot of the workload with the lack of options currently available to manager Neil Lennon.

Vakoun Issouf Bayo has scored just once this season, while Leigh Griffiths has been struggling with injuries in recent months and has not played since August.
