Celtic: Further Georgios Giakoumakis update emerges

Celtic: Further Georgios Giakoumakis update emerges -Celtic

Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has claimed that VVV-Venlo striker Georgios Giakoumakis is weighing up a move between Celtic and Werder Bremen.

The Lowdown: Celtic’s summer

CEO Dominic McKay has been a busy man in his first summer at the club.

Seven new first-team signings are already through the door, with two more expected in Shamrock Rovers’ Liam Scales and Legia Warsaw’s Josip Juranovic.

Striker Thomas Henry of OH Leuven was recently linked with a move to Glasgow, however, it seems as if McKay and co are now looking at Giakoumakis, who enjoyed his most productive season in front of goal last year with 26 Eredivisie goals in 30 appearances.

The Latest: Joseph’s post

Joseph took to Twitter on Thursday to provide an update on Giakoumakis and a potential Parkhead switch.

He admitted that the 26-year-old is weighing up a move between Celtic and Werder Bremen, with £3m set to be enough for his services.

The Sky Sports reporter then added more details regarding the striker.

“I’m told that Giakoumakis & his agent visited Bremen last night to see the club’s facilities and held informal discussions. Bremen had a bid of £1.7m rejected by Venlo, but have not given up hope. Celtic have made initial contact with the player’s representatives & the club.”

The Verdict: Sell Edouard

If Celtic are successful in their pursuit of Giakoumakis, then they should be looking to offload Odsonne Edouard in the final weeks of the window.

The French forward has been the Hoops’ main man in recent years, contributing to 124 goals in his 176 Celtic appearances.

However, he will be free to talk to sides in January ahead of a potential pre-contract agreement, with his Hoops deal up next summer and is working on a Parkhead exit.

So, should Giakoumakis, described as ‘very special’, arrive for £3m, then Celtic should explore selling Edouard for a decent fee before the end of the month instead of risking losing him for nothing over the next 12 months.

In other news: Joseph shares more Celtic transfer news, but this one isn’t positve.
