Sporting Lisbon eye move for Celtic player this summer

Celtic already appear to be on the verge of losing one of their most important players in Jota. The Portuguese winger has been a nailed on starter for the club ever since he arrived in the summer of 2021. But a £25 million move to Al-Ittihad seems to be pretty close to completion. And now, it looks like another of the Hoops’ players is drawing interest.

Liel Abada is someone who has been linked with a move away from Celtic for some time now. It will be interesting to see if that situation changes, with Jota set to exit, opening up a spot in the starting XI immediately.

There seems to be plenty of interest in the signature of Abada. Clubs like Benfica and Ajax have been linked with him already. And it looks like more are joining the race to sign the Israeli international.

As reported by Sky Sports, Sporting Lisbon are interested in Abada. The Portuguese giants are considering a move for the Celtic winger, especially if Marcus Edwards leaves this summer.

Abada might not have been a nailed on starter for Celtic last season, but he certainly made his presence felt off the bench, contributing with both goals and assists. The youngster is certainly someone with the ability to make something happen in the final third of the pitch.

Thus, with Jota leaving, it would make sense for Celtic to try and keep him at the club next season. Let’s see how things play out.

Both Jota and Abada leaving in the same window would be a major blow for the club without doubt. It also remains to be seen what Brendan Rodgers thinks of playing Daizen Maeda on the wings. This is a very interesting time for the Hoops for sure.
