An exclusive Football News report is claiming Celtic are eyeing a swoop for Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres this summer.
The striker had earlier revealed his intention on leaving the Madrid club this summer, and two of Britain giants have already been linked to securing the signature of the Spain international.
Torres, who boast of Champions League, Europa League, World Cup and European Championships trophies isn’t considering hanging his boot yet as he confirmed he will play beyond this summer, despite leaving Atleti this summer.
The €4m rated 34-year-old might not be the same striker he was back then, but he still he’s presence at Celtic would command respect for the Glasgow giants.
Stats compilers at Oddscheker revealed Newcastle United are ready to battle it out with Celtic for the signing of the Spanish international.
Given his previous work under Rafa Benitez, Torres could consider a reunion with his former boss, but he will almost certainly be aware of Brendan Rodgers given their respective backgrounds with Chelsea and Liverpool.
As with any transfer rumours at this stage, we need to take them with a pinch of salt until something concrete finally reveal itself but obviously, having I’d absolutely love for this to be true and to see the Spaniard join Celtic this summer.
