CELTIC are involved in a £7million transfer puzzle over over reported target Andraz Sporar.
The champions have been told it will cost them more than the original £5.5million quoted to sign the Slovan Bratislava striker.
The club chief Ivan Kmotrick insisted the Hoops HAVE made an approach for their prolific forward, as CQN reported at the weekend.
However, Neil Lennon dismissed the speculation which stated they had been given the green light to go for the 25-year-old ace who is under contract until June 2023.
But the Slovenian club’s insisted the champions have been in touch about the availability of the hitman.
Sporar has 20 goals from 26 appearances this season, including netting five in six during the Europa League group stage.
And Kmitrick, speaking in the Daily Record, said: “It is true that Celtic has sent us a specific offer and has shown an enormous interest in Andraz Sporar.
“Other strong clubs from countries such as France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium have also heard from us.
“The interest is great and we expect it to be even more pronounced during the transition period.
“I cannot imagine selling Andraz for less than €7m-€8million.”
Lennon has admitted he will be looking to next month’s transfer window to strengthen Scotland’s title kings and it seems clear Odsonne Edouard needs support in attack.
