Exit strategy

Mohamad Abu Fani and his agents are pushing for an exit from Maccabi Haifa this summer amid interest from Celtic, Israeli media report.

We’ve told you how the Hoops are one of four clubs credited with an interest in the 24-year-old Israel international, having sent scouts to watch him in action for his country this week.

Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt and Belgian clubs Standard Liège and Royal Antwerp have also sent scouts to monitor the starting midfielder.

Fani made his international debut against Scotland two years ago and has become an influential player for Maccabi, who won the Israeli title this season.

He still has three years left on his contract but reports in Israel suggest his club will not stand in his way if any team, including Celtic, reach their £800,000 valuation.

Israeli outfit ONE suggest talks have already taken place between Maccabi and the player’s agent Dudu Dahan, who wants him to leave this summer – even though he has three years left on his contract.

Dahan has done many mega deals with Celtic in the past for Efe Ambrose, Nir Bitton, Beram Kayal and recently for the club’s impressive young winger Liel Abada.
