The Bournemouth winger is being strongly linked with a move to Celtic.
Neutral fans are mocking Jordon Ibe amid reports the Bournemouth winger could join Celtic on loan.
The Express claims Celtic are looking to tie up a temporary deal for Ibe, having been unprepared to meet Bournemouth’s asking price.
According to the same publication, the Cherries paid around £14 million to sign the 23-year-old from Liverpool in 2016.
Ibe had previously broken through at Anfield under the then-future Celtic boss, Brendan Rodgers.
And the former Wycombe Wanderers prodigy was once tipped by John Aldridge to surpass Raheem Sterling.
But things haven’t quite turned out that way for Ibe, who has scored or made just 14 goals in 88 games for Bournemouth, compared to Sterling’s 139 in 194 for Manchester City.
And a potential move to Celtic is perceived by some to be the latest downward turn in Ibe’s career.
Here’s what’s being said on Twitter…

This man’s been handed every opportunity to develop and succeed on a silver platter if he flops again he should just retire— big pat (@bigpat8lfc) August 20, 2019
Should Ibe indeed join Celtic, he can at least take inspiration from the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Moussa Dembele and Kieran Tierney, who have gone on to continue their careers at elite clubs after leaving Parkhead.
