BOURNEMOUTH winger Jordon Ibe is wanted by Celtic on loan.
Eddie Howe is now weighing up whether to allow Ibe out as there are concerns over Arnaut Danjuma’s foot injury.
Ibe has also attracted interest from foreign clubs but could be needed for cover as Danjuma has aggravated a problem that ruled him out for four months last season.
The £13.7million signing from Club Brugge has gone for scans on his injury and has left Ibe sweating on a season-long move.
Howe only has Harry Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Ibe as wide options as Danjuma has joined David Brooks and Junior Stanislas in the treatment room.
Ibe was on the bench against Sheffield United at the weekend and Howe has been considering allowing him out.
Italian club Napoli have enquired about him, while Italian club Fiorentina and Espanyol in Spain have also shown interest.
Turkish giants Galatasaray have also tracked Ibe but the opportunity to play for the Scottish champions would be difficult to resist for Ibe.
For Bournemouth, though, the biggest blow is Brooks’ absence.
The Wales star, 22, who was on the shortlist for PFA young player of the year last term, is out for three months after having surgery on his injured ankle.
