HOOPS PLAN NEW BID FOR NIGERIAN STRIKER

0
CELTIC are planning to make a second bid for Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru after their first offer – believed to be around £1million – was rejected.
The Hoops hoped to sign exciting 19-year-old attacker from Belgian club KAS Eupen after being impressed by his record in the Jupiler Pro League this season.

In just 22 games, he has scored 10 and provided six assists.

That is a record which has prompted interest from several big clubs, including Bundesliga outfits Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, as well as Russian champions CSKA Moscow and Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

And it was enough to prompt Brendan Rodgers, who has already bought £2.8million Ivorian midfielder Kouassi Eboue from Krasnodar in the January window, to make a bid.

However, Celtic were told the player – owned by Qatari youth set-up, Aspire – is not currently for sale by the organisation’s director general, Ivan Bravo.

But the champions will  make another move for Onyekuru who said in CQN yesterday: “Celtic are interested in me and they have tabled an official bid.

“There are discussions between the clubs and my agent.

“I believe everything will be sorted out soon.”

Watch this space! Could be a busy week ahead on CQN!
