Celtic are interested in signing Rochdale teenage sensation Kwadwo Baah following his breakthrough campaign in the Football League.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Give Me Sport, who claim that the Hoops, along with rivals Rangers and Premier League side West Ham, are eager to discuss a move with the 18-year-old.
Recent Juventus and Bayern Munich interest
Baah, who has played all across the front line this season in League One, is out of contract at the end of the season. The teenager has netted three goals this season, also providing two assists in 11 league starts.
Italian giants Juventus and Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were thought to be interested in the youngster at the end of 2020, but a January move abroad failed to materialise and Celtic may now reap the benefits of that.
Transfer Tavern take
Baah appears to fit Celtic’s new transfer strategy like an absolute glove. The Hoops are reportedly (The Athletic) looking at UK-based prospects with high upside potential who are available either on a pre-contract, or for a nominal fee.
The versatile Rochdale ace seems to tick all those boxes, and with the high-profile sides recently interested in the player, a deal could prove to be a shrewd piece of business in the long run.
Reports have suggested current Hoops ace Karamoko Dembele will leave Parkhead in the summer, so Baah could well fill Dembele’s boots as the next youngster to break into the first-team.
