Celtic are thought to be interested in a summer move for Young Boys striker Jean-Pierre Nsame.
That’s according to a report from TEAMtalk, who claimed that Newcastle, Southampton and West Ham have also placed the 27-year-old on their transfer wish lists.
Will Celtic receive over £15m for Edouard?
Nsame, a Cameroon international, has been on fire in front of goal in recent years. He has scored 97 goals in 169 games for the Swiss side after joining for just £810,000 back in 2017. It now seems as if he could be on the move, though, with the £6.3m-rated marksman attracting plenty of interest from Britain.
Transfer Tavern take
It seems as if new Celtic CEO Dominic McKay isn’t wasting any time in putting plans in place for the summer. He arrived at Parkhead seven days ago, and to us, Nsame could be a potentially ideal replacement for Odsonne Edouard.
The Frenchman is looking to seal a Celtic Park exit over the summer, regardless of who comes in as the club’s new manager.
It looks as if Nsame certainly has the goalscoring know-how to pick up wherever Edouard leaves off, but with a number of Premier League clubs seemingly keen, the Hoops may well be forced into a bidding war.
