Oliver Ntcham reportedly in ‘advanced negotiations’ with English Premier League Club

Posted by

French midfielder Oliver Ntcham is reportedly in talks with English Premier League side, West Ham.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato, West Ham are at the advanced stage of negotiations for the player, two years after he left England for the Scottish Champions

With only a few days left in the window, the 23-year-old would be a big loss for the Scottish Champions. The midfielder has bags of potential, so it is no wonder clubs from such big leagues are being linked with him.

He has previously been linked with the likes of Portuguese side Porto and French sides such as Lille.

Many fans would be disappointed to see Ntcham leave with the player playing a big part in the title race so far this season. He has also scored some crucial goals in Europe such as his famous last minute winner and celebration against Lazio, to put Celtic through with two games to spare in the Europe League.

His departure would also mean Celtic would need to find a replacement and fast which could be hard with not much time left in the window, which shuts on Friday.

There hasn’t been many rumours around this transfer, which has seemingly come from out of nowhere, with barely any speculation around the players exit this month.

Hopefully these rumours are only that, and Ntcham is at least, at the club for the remainder of the season. In this title race, we cannot afford to be losing key players such as Oliver Ntcham. The team news for tonight’s game could give a big indication into the players future at the club.
