Scottish Premiership giants Celtic have to pay the £4m transfer fee demanded for Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet if they want to sign him this summer. This is according to ex-Hibsplayer Tam McManus in his recent interview as monitored by media portal HITC.
QPR target Nisbet was recently praised by Rangers legend Ally McCoist for his prowess in the box. According to McCoist, the QPR transfer-linked player comes alive in the box. Scotland national team player Nisbet has been labelled the young Ally McCoist by a lot of football stakeholders in Scotland.
Nisbet showed his quality as a striker on the big stage when he opened his account for the Scotland national team in the 2-2 draw with the Netherlands earlier this week in an international friendly. He found the back of the net off the cross from team captain and Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.
Hibs striker Nisbet has been linked with Celtic as a potential replacement forOdsonne Edouard who’s a reported target for Leicester City in the Premier League. Nisbet could replace Frenchman Edouard at Celtic if he leaves the immediate past Scottish Premiership champions this summer as expected. Celtic will have to fend off the interest of QPR for Nisbet.
Nisbet is expected to play for Scotland under manager Steve Clarke at the Euro 2020 tournament which starts on Friday. Scotland are in the same group as home nations rivals England, Croatia and Czech Republic.
Hibernian are on course to make a huge profit on 24-year-old Nisbet whom they signed from Dunfermlinefor just £250,000 last summer.
