Celtic are looking to push through the transfers of Kris Ajer and Odsonne Edouard before the end of the month.

Those transfers could bring in between £25-30m which should push the end of year (30 June) accounts into positive territory as Peter Lawwell heads off into retirement.

After failing to sell any players last summer it seems that the club is keen to push through with sales with the new manager inheriting a squad looking thin on quality and quantity.

The Daily Record reports:

Celtic are keen to allow the new boss to get to work and there will be funds available for the rebuilding mission.

The kitty is expected to be bolstered by the sale of big names Odsonne Edouard and Kris Ajer by the end of the month.

Should Peter Lawwell leave with immediate effect?

Yes, utterly toxic, the rebuild starts when he leaves

With four loan players back at their parent clubs, six more on international duty and Scott Brown bound for Pittodrie the start of pre-season training on June 17 will look much different from the same stage in 2020.

In 2018 Moussa Dembele was sold to Lyon on August 31 with no replacement brought in. A year later Kieran Tierney was sold to Arsenal on 8 August.

During the current financial years Celtic spent around £13m on Albian Ajeti, Vasilis Barkas and David Turnbull plus loan fees. In January they brought in around £11m from the transfers of Jeremie Frimpong and Hatem Abd Elhamed.
