Celtic can land big Ajeti upgrade with Antoine Semenyo transfer move

Celtic had no issue when it came to scoring goals throughout their previous SPFL campaign.

In fact, with 38 games played, the Hoops found the net on 92 occasions in total, 12 more times than their Old Firm rivals Rangers managed to rack up.

First up in this Celtic transfer quiz, which club did Celtic sign Christopher Jullien from?

To further highlight how deadly Ange Postecoglou’s side were, there were 18 different players that managed to get their names on the scoresheet at least once throughout the campaign.

One player that contributed to this total of goals scored throughout the season in a rather small degree is Albian Ajeti.

To be specific, with seven league appearances to his name, the striker could only fire in two goals for his side.

This shows that even when he’s been given the odd chance to play, he hasn’t always been a useful provider of goals for his side.

With rumours of a potential exit arising around the Switzerland international, the Parkhead club could be on the look to see who could be brought in to be a potential replacement for the 25-year-old.

One figure that has been mentioned with a move to Glasgow, that wouldn’t just be a good replacement for Ajeti, but also a significant upgrade is Antoine Semenyo.

The forward has regularly been linked with a switch and Pete O’Rourke confirmed they still have interested in the player late last week, saying: “Celtic have been keeping tabs on him for a while and I’m sure that will continue.”

With 31 league appearances for Bristol City last season under his belt, the striker scored eight goals and delivered 12 assists, which shows that not only is he very capable of scoring goals, he can also set them up for his teammates on a regular basis.

Are you surprised Albian Ajeti is still at Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This is something that Ajeti hasn’t really been too consistent with as he’s only managed to supply five assists in a Celtic shirt with 48 appearances to his name.

Semenyo also racked up a higher rate for shots on target per 90 minutes (1.14) than any other player at the Championship club, along with the highest average for dribbles per game (1.2).

Again, this highlights the attacking attributes that the 22-year-old has over the current Celtic striker as he could only muster an average of 0.1 dribbles per game in the SPFL last season.

Hailed by Nigel Pearson as being a “nightmare” for defenders to play against, Semenyo would be an ideal candidate for Celtic to look at in terms of being a potential replacement for Ajeti in the future, as he has proved how different and effective he can be compared to what the 25-year-old has shown during his time at Parkhead.
