Agent of reported Celtic, Norwich target Alireza Jahanbakhsh discusses potential summer transfer

Celtic

Jahanbakhsh has been linked with a summer transfer to both Celtic and Norwich City.

Speaking to SoccerNews in the Netherlands, the agent of Iranian wonderkid Jahanbakhsh confirmed interest in his client, and admitted that a transfer will come around if a buying club will allow him to establish his name in football.

Amir Hashemi said: “Ali is no longer a talent. He must now establish his name. PSV have expressed interest. But nothing yet concrete. AZ is also in.”

Jahanbakhsh currently turns out for NEC Nijmegen, where the 21-year-old scored 12 goals and registered 17 assists in 28 games, playing as a winger.

A full Iranian international, with 14 caps to his name, the youngster is considered a real talent in world football, and a summer transfer is expected to one of Europe’s top leagues.

His agent has confirmed interest from Eredivisie clubs PSV and AZ, whilst Voetbal International claimed Norwich City are keen on making a move for him. Scottish champions Celtic have also been linked with the youngster, as per the Scotsman.

Jahanbakhsh has impressed so heavily in the Netherlands, and a summer move is expected. His agent is clearly pushing for a move away from NEC, and it looks as if Celtic and Norwich face stiff competition to sign a player who is set to become a superstar in the future.
