Celtic flop Kouassi Eboue linked with a move to Greek giants Panathinaikos

It seems that Kouassi Eboue could be heading out of the club this summer with Greek giants Panathinaikos interested in signing the out of favour Celtic midfielder.

According to Greek site Sdna.Gr, they have claimed that Panathinaikos’ sporting director Nikos Dabizas is set for talks with the Celtic hierarchy over a move for the 21 year old - with no news yet on whether it will be a permanent move or a loan deal.

Kouassi was signed by Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers in January 2017 for a fee of €3.5m from Russian side Krasnodar, but has failed to establish himself as a first team regular, while suffering a number of injuries as well. His four year deal ends in 2021.

A loan move to Greece with the option of a permanent deal would be the smart play for both clubs and it would allow Kouassi to get some much needed first team football also.

Since moving to Glasgow in 2017, Kouassi has played just 22 times for the Scottish champions in all competitions - with ten of those coming on as a substitute.
