Report: Celtic given new hope in transfer chase for Manchester City's John Guidetti

Feyenoord are said to be struggling to finance a deal to sign Manchester City striker John Guidetti, which gives Celtic the opportunity to swoop.

Celtic appear to have hope in their chase of John Guidetti, with Feyenoord struggling to finance a move for the striker, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Guidetti has already spoken to RTV of his desire to join Feyenoord on a permanent deal, but the transfer appears in doubt due to the Dutch club's lack of funds.

That could give Celtic a chance to land the 23-year-old Manchester City man in the summer, with the striker set to leave the Etihad Stadium.

Ronny Deila has previously confirmed his desire to sign Guidetti in the Mail and it seems that his hopes will have been raised due to Feyenoord's apparent financial struggles.

Guidetti has been on loan at Celtic all season and he has clearly done enough to convince Deila that he would be a worthwhile addition to the squad.

Although the Swede's form has dropped off more recently, he still has a large amount of raw ability and the hope is that he would be able to rediscover his best form with his future more settled. 

Guidetti has scored 15 goals in 34 appearances for Celtic so far this season and the Bhoys will be hoping he can better that total next term, should he extend his stay.
