Celtic were offered the chance to sign Bodo/Glimt striker Ola Solbakken last summer but the Bhoys apparently had other ideas.
This is according to the Scottish Daily Expresswho claim Solbakken was touted as a transfer option to Celtic last summer.
It should be noted that We Are Celts actually got this story first and The Express apparently support this.
Ange Postecoglou was looking to rebuild the Celtic squad at the time, but Solbakken’s agent refused to be carried away by the rumors during an interview with The Express.
Solbakken, 23, plays mostly as a right winger and cuts the inside of his left foot to wreak havoc.
The Norwegian star scored against Celtic on Thursday night, helping Bodo/Glimt knock Bhoys out of the Europa Conference League.
Solbakken was a constant threat, taking his Conference League tally to five goals and two assists in just eight appearances.
Celtic apparently felt Solbakken wasn’t a good fit for them last summer but could they try again later?
Solbakken is out of contract at the end of 2022, meaning he can actually sign a pre-contract deal this summer.
Celtic have a few right-sided wingers in Liel Abada and James Forrest, but Solbakken could be a bargain just too good to pass up
Bodo/Glimt have been a real success story under Kjetil Knutsen and Solbakken could be the last star to leave as a result.
Jens Petter Hauge has joined AC Milan, Philip Zinckernagel at Watford, Kasper Junker at Urawa Red Diamonds and, most recently, Fredrik Andre Bjorkan at Hertha Berlin and Patrick Berg at Lens.
Solbakken could soon be Bodo/Glimt’s next big export, with Celtic surely thinking of him; maybe hoping their luck hasn’t completely gone away.
