CELTIC target Henry Onyekuru is being tracked by Premier League Bournemouth.
Boss Eddie Howe sent scouts to check out the KAS Eupen striker at the weekend.
Onyekuru scored his fifth goal in four games in the 3-3 draw with KV Kortrijk to take his season’s total to 17 in 32 appearances.
Liverpool and Southampton are also monitoring the 19-year-old Nigerian.
Brendan Rodgers slapped in a £1million bid for the pacy frontman during the January transfer window, but the Belgian minnows rejected the offer.
An upset Onkekuru staged a vanishing act and missed three games before returning to become a first team regular again.
The player recently confirmed he would be leaving at the end of the season.
He said: “I have made my decision to leave. I have already agreed with Eupen that I am joining my new club after this season.

“I want to take the next step and play abroad. My ultimate aim is to one day play in the Premier League .

“There have been many enquiries for me from clubs in Scotland, England and Germany.

“I am negotiations right now with clubs.

“I believe I have had my best season, but I want to leave Eupen on a high and I would love to get as far up the table as possible before I leave.

“But it’s really been my first season in a major league and I know I still have a lot to learn.”

Club Brugge, Borussia Monchengladbach and CSKA Moscow have also been linked with the teenager.
