Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Celtic fans happy to sell Ajer for £27m

It’s been widely reported that Kristoffer Ajer could be on his way out of Celtic Park this summer, and we’ve now got a clearer idea of where he could end up, and how much money the Bhoys could receive for him.

The Norwegian centre-half has been a key man for Neil Lennon’s side this term, starting 28 league games in 2019/20, but with the defender seemingly unwilling to extend his contract beyond 2022, it may soon be time for the Scottish champions to cash in.

They aren’t short of suitors either as Tuttosport are now reporting that he is on AC Milan’s radar, but Celtic aren’t willing to let him go for cheap, demanding at least €30m (£27m).

This news has a lot of fans salivating at the idea of such a hefty financial windfall for a centre-back who many of them don’t seem to rate that highly.

Some fans stated that they’d be ecstatic to get £27m for him, while another stated that his poor aerial ability makes £27m a great price for the selling club.

Ajer’s aerial ability may have come under some criticism here, but the stats don’t seem to back up that theory, he wins 3.3 aerial duels per game in the Europa League, and WhoScored list aerial duels as one of his strengths.

However, with Transfermarkt valuing him at just £2.43m, it’s hard to argue that £27m wouldn’t be a great price for Celtic, and many fans seem to agree.

Others were much kinder about Ajer’s talents, stating that although he is a good player, the club would have to take £27m if such an offer came in.

Of course, setting a steep asking price is no guarantee of making a sale, but if AC Milan or another club from Europe come in with a hefty offer for the Norway international there will be a lot of joy around the green and white half of Glasgow.
