Napoli and Fiorentina ‘interested in Celtic target Jordon Ibe’

Napoli and Fiorentina ‘interested in Jordon Ibe’ as out-of-favour Bournemouth winger considers future with Celtic also interested in loan deal

  • Former Liverpool winger Jordan Ibe has fallen out of favour at Bournemouth 
  • The winger was an unused substitute in Saturday’s draw with Sheffield United
  • The 23-year-old started just nine games in the Premier League last season 
  • Any potential move could hinge on the fitness of new signing Arnaut Danjuma

Celtic are reportedly facing competition three European clubs in their pursuit of Bournemouth winger Jordan Ibe.

The Englishman has fallen out of favour at Dean Court, starting just nine Premier League games last season.

The Hoops are keen on a loan deal for the player but Serie A sides Napoli and Fiorentina are also interested as well as La Liga outfit Espanyol, according to The Scotsman.

Celtic, Napoli, Fiorentina and Espanyol are reportedly interested in the 23-year-old 

However, any potential deal is said to hinge on the fitness of new Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma, who is understood to have aggravated a foot problem that saw him spend four months on the sidelines last season.

Danjuma, who joined the Cherries from Club Brugge for £13.7m earlier this month, has been sent for scans on the injury.

Ibe was an unused substitute in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

If the Danjuma injury is serious then the 23-year-old will be just one of three wingers at Eddie Howe’s disposal, reducing the chances that the Bournemouth boss would allow him to leave.
