Celtic can finally axe Albian Ajeti with Alexandre Mendy transfer

Celtic haven’t had many issues when it comes to scoring goals in the SPFL this season.

With 34 games done and dusted, the Hoops have found the net 81 times, making them the deadliest attacking team in the league.

To further highlight just how much of an attacking threat Ange Postecoglou’s side have been in this campaign, the Bhoys have racked up a whopping total of 707 shots at goal, 41 more than the second-best.

Putting that further into perspective, that’s more than double the likes of Livingston, Ross County, Dundee and St. Johnstone have had in the same period of time.

One figure at the Parkhead club that hasn’t been particularly prominent in an attacking sense in comparison to the other forward players is Albian Ajeti.

With seven league appearances to his name throughout this campaign, the striker has only managed to have nine of those 707 shots at goal, with only four being on target.

Now that the season is drawing to a close and the summer transfer window is set to open for business, this could provide Postecoglou with the perfect opportunity to get rid of the 25-year-old and potentially bring in a suitable replacement for him.

Having been linked with a move for SM Caen striker Alexandre Mendy in recent weeks, he could be the right person to come in and finally push the misfiring Ajeti out of the club.

In this current Ligue 1 campaign, Mendy has found the net 16 times in 31 appearances, showing that he has a knack for scoring goals in one of Europe’s top leagues.

Has Albian Ajeti been a bad signing for Celtic?

Yes

No

No

To further highlight his attacking prowess, out of the 68 shots he’s had at goal, 35 of them have been on target, meaning that the £1.8m-rated centre-forward is a real nuisance for opposition goalkeepers.

Labelled as a “problem” for Celtic in terms of his style of play in the past by Frank McAvennie, Ajeti has clearly not been able to prove himself to the Hoops boss this season, meaning that his future at the club could be in doubt.

Heading into the summer transfer period, if the Bhoys can work out a deal to bring Mendy to Celtic Park and get their current striker’s £18.5k-per-week wages off their books, this could be an ideal situation for all parties involved.
