Celtic: Hoops ‘set sights’ on Antoine Semenyo

Celtic: Hoops ‘set sights’ on Antoine Semenyo -Celtic News

Celtic are once again being linked with a move for Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo in the upcoming summer transfer window, this time by Ghanasoccernet.

The lowdown: Hot prospect

Born in London but of Ghanaian descent, the highly-rated forward has enjoyed a steady rise to prominence in the southwest of England, having graduated through the Robins’ youth system.

Having spent time on loan at Sunderland, Newport County and Bath City, the 22-year-old has already made 137 senior appearances despite his tender years.

Heading steadfast towards the final year of his contract at Bristol City, a move could now be on the horizon for the talented forward…

The latest: Celtic watching Semenyo

As per Ghanasoccernet, Celtic are believed to have ‘set sights’ on Semenyo as Ange Postecoglou looks to bolster the Hoops’ ranks ahead of next season.

It’s claimed that the Ghana international, who made his Black Stars debut this week against Madagascar, has ‘been on the radar’ at Parkhead for a prolonged period, and officials from the Glasgow club have been ‘closely monitoring’ his development.

The report added that the Hoops will allow £5m flop Albian Ajeti to leave the club in order to make room for the youngster, who was touted as a ‘real talent’ by journalist Gregor MacGregor in 2019.

Celtic fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict: Make it happen

Predominantly operating at centre-forward, Semenyo scored eight times and provided 12 assists during 2021/22, showcasing selflessness and an ability to bring team-mates into goalscoring positions while also having a sharp eye for the net himself.

Valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt, the Championship outfit were previously holding out for offers in the region of £20m for their talented youngster as Nottingham Forest and Watford both attempted to land the Ghanaian.

No

No

However, with the aforementioned contract entering its final 12 months, Celtic should be testing the waters with a much lower initial offer in an attempt to sign the talented attacker, particularly if Ajeti moves on following a torrid campaign for the Swiss forward, in which he scored a paltry  three goals.
