Brentford submit offer for Bayer Leverkusen target Kristoffer Ajer (Celtic)

Bild report tonight that Celtic have received an offer from Premier League newcomers Brentford for defender Kristoffer Ajer, sneaking in at the 11th hour after the 23-year-old had agreed a deal in principle with Bayer Leverkusen.

The figure is believed to be above Celtic’s valuation of €15m, a fee that Bayer Leverkusen don’t believe is feasible with just one-year remaining on his current deal.

Per the report, Ajer had agreed a contract of at least four years with Bayer Leverkusen and had even spoken to new B04 head coach Gerardo Seoane but it’s now unlikely that they will increase their offer.

A central defender remains top priority for Bayer Leverkusen following an injury to Edmond Tapsoba, who is expected to be sidelined until October.
