Celtic: Hoops register Santos Borre interest

Celtic: Hoops register Santos Borre interest - Celtic

Celtic have registered their interest in River Plate striker Santos Borre, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Borre profiled

Borre is 25 years of age and has four caps to his name for Colombia. He currently plies his trade for Argentine side River Plate but is out of contract in seven days time.

The centre-forward has scored 74 times and registered 23 assists in 212 club appearances for River Plate, Deportivo Cali and Villarreal.

He’s won five honours during his career and two individual accolades, and it seems as if the Hoops are plotting a move for the South American.

The Latest: Source shares news

Football Insider shared a story on Borre on Wednesday morning, claiming Celtic have joined rivals Rangers in the race for his services.

They have been informed by a Celtic source that the Hops have registered an interest in Borre.

The striker, currently on £11,000-a-week, is after a lucrative long-term contract, with those demands set to be pivotal when it comes to choosing his next club.

The Verdict: A possible Edouard replacement?

Odsonne Edouard is still expected to leave Celtic despite his move to Leicester City falling through. So, should the Frenchman move on, Borre could well be a suitable replacement at Parkhead.

He has experience of playing in Europe with Villarreal and appears to be the calibre of forward required to replace someone like Edouard, who has netted 83 goals in 168 Hoops appearances.

Borre’s wage demands could also be in Celtic’s price range, with the club’s top earner Callum McGregor on £20,000-a-week.

Edouard is on £19,000-a-week in Glasgow, so perhaps Celtic could offer Borre an £8,000-a-week increase on his current salary to win the race for his services.
