Neil Lennon Admits Ecuadorian Jose Cifuentes is ‘On His Radar’

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has admitted he’s keeping an eye on Ecuadorian wonderkid Jose Cifuentes ahead of the current transfer window slamming shut.

The Hoops have completed two signings so far this summer, with Christopher Jullien and Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo arriving for a combined fee of around £10 million, but it seems the spending isn’t over yet.

The Sun reported last month how Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were keen on taking the 20-year-old midfielder to the Etihad following his impressive displays for his country at the Under-20 World Cup in June.

However, speaking to BBC Scotland ahead of tonight’s Champions League qualifier against FK Sarajevo, Lennon cryptically admitted the youngster was ‘on the radar’, but refused to go as far as saying there’s a proper interest.

He said: “I can’t confirm there is an interest.

“Again, it’s a player who we know very little about but one that has come up on the radar so that’s all I can say on that one.”

Said to be a powerful and clever midfielder, do you think Cifuentes would fit the bill of what’s required at Celtic?
