Surely West Ham won't sign Celtic's Olivier Ntcham if Camacho happens

Olivier Ntcham of Celtic's free kick hits the wall during the Rangers v Celtic Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match at Ibrox Stadium on March 11, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Celtic star has been linked with West Ham United this summer.

The Guardian reported on Saturday that Ignacio Camacho is a target of West Ham United - and Celtic fans might be hoping that the deal goes through.

The Wolfsburg midfielder is reportedly keen to join up with West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, who once managed the 28-year-old at Malaga.

Signing him would be excellent for the Irons, who have already had an exceptional transfer window, but such a deal would probably also have positive ramifications for Celtic.

Last week it was reported by L'Equipe in France that the Premier League side had asked about signing Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham.

 

But if Pellegrini can land the one-time Spain international - who joined Wolfsburg for £9 million last summer - then surely a move for the Hoops star makes very little sense.

In truth, West Ham had a slim chance of prising Ntcham from Parkhead anyway without a huge offer, given his importance to Brendan Rodgers's side.

But fans of the Scottish Premiership side can rest easy in the knowledge that it probably won't happen if Pellegrini went and re-signed the powerful midfielder.

United only have five days left in which to bolster their squad and if Ntcham to the London Stadium was a silly rumour to begin with, it definitely won't be happening if West Ham get their Spaniard.
