Celtic players seem to be in high demand in Italy. Kris Ajer was linked with AC Milan earlier and now it is the turn of another Hoops player. But with a different team.
Celtic have won the Scottish league for nine consecutive times. And with that success has come the attention of clubs around Europe. Of course, it is one of the biggest clubs in the world but the Scottish league is not a financially lucrative league by any stretch of the imagination.
As a result, for the past several seasons, the club has lost some of its best players to financially stronger sides. And that will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future. That is the bitter truth about modern football.
Earlier in the season, Kris Ajer was linked with a move to AC Milan. Now it is the turn of his defensive partner, Christopher Jullien. But this time, Napoli are the side looking to secure the services of the player.
Well known Italian publication Corriere dello Sport reported on it and it was cited by Calcio Napoli 1926 as:
In Scotland, in Celtic, there is a Frenchman, Christopher Jullien , who caught the eye, before the season stopped, and led to some thoughts, Imposing physicist (one meter and ninety-seven), scattered experiences (Auxerre, Friborg , Dijon and Toulouse, before Scotland).
Now Jullien has come in for some criticism lately but Celtic cannot afford to let him go right now. Especially not when the club need another centre-back as things stand. But considering how things turned out the last time with Ajer, the fans can take these rumours with a pinch of salt.
