Celtic: Georgios Giakoumakis move now in doubt

Celtic: Georgios Giakoumakis move now in doubt -Celtic

Celtic’s swoop for VVV-Venlo striker Georgios Giakoumakis is in doubt, according to a report from Inside Futbol.

The Lowdown: Fee agreed?

Duncan Castles was the man who shared the initial links to Giakoumakis earlier in the week.

The transfer expert added more details on the 26-year-old on Thursday, claiming a fee has been struck between Celtic and VVV-Venlo for his services.

However, even though a move is seemingly heading in the right direction, one report isn’t so sure a transfer is as straightforward as it appears.

The Latest: Doubts shared

Inside Futbol shared a report regarding Celtic’s move for the Greece international on Thursday evening.

They claimed that a transfer to Parkhead is currently rated at less than 50 per cent likelihood, with negotiations not running smoothly.

The coming days will be crucial over any deal going through, with the report adding that Bundesliga side Werder Bremen are also keen.

The Verdict: Not ideal

It looked as if Dominic McKay’s attempts over a move for Giakoumakis were gathering real pace, so this update comes as a shock.

Even though Celtic weren’t thought to be after a new centre-forward at the beginning of the month, it now seems as if they want to bring in Giakoumakis.

If they fail in their attempts to land the forward who Ange Postecoglou personally called, it may have a knock-on effect with Odsonne Edouard.

Should a new striker not come in, the Hoops could be reluctant to part ways with Edouard, which could see him leave for nothing next summer and therefore harm Celtic in the long-term.
