Celtic: Postecoglou can finally axe Ajeti by signing Antoine Semenyo

Celtic gave their fans lots to shout about throughout the 2021/22 SPFL season in terms of the number of goals Ange Postecoglou’s side scored.

Throughout their 38 league games, the Bhoys found the net on 92 occasions, leaving them with the best-attacking record in the top flight.

To further highlight how much of an attacking force Celtic were this season, 18 different players all managed to score at league one goal, with four scoring at least ten.

One of those 18 players that was not as prominent as others was striker Albian Ajeti.

With only seven league appearances to his name in this campaign, the 25-year-old provided two of Celtic’s 92 league goals.

Since arriving at the club back in August 2020 from West Ham United in a deal worth £4.5m, Ajeti has scored just nine goals in 48 league appearances across all competitions.

With Frank McAvennie claiming that it’s “unbelievable” that Celtic are still paying the 25-year-old’s wages, Ajeti’s position at the club could be in danger this summer.

Should the former Hammers man find himself out the door at Parkhead in the coming weeks, one figure that the Hoops have been linked with that could be an excellent replacement for him is Antoine Semenyo.

Having delivered 20 goal contributions in 31 Championship appearances for Bristol City this season with eight goals and 12 assists to his name, the 22-year-old certainly has enough attacking talent in him to be a suitable addition to Postecoglou’s side.

Bristol Live fan columnist Math Withers previously described one of Semenyo’s shots at goal as a “piledriver,” which highlights the sort of danger he carries going forward.

The Ghanaian also has the highest average for shots (2.3) and dribbles per game (1.2) this season, along with the second highest average for key passes (1.1).

This highlights how much of a creative attacking figure he is as well as a clinical finisher in front of goal.

While the Hoops had no issues when it came to scoring goals in their title winning campaign, adding a player like Semenyo to their ranks as a potential replacement for Ajeti could be just what Celtic need to refresh their attack and get the right amount of strength and depth in that position.
