Celtic: Ange Postecoglou interested in Antoine Semenyo

Celtic are interested in a deal to bring Antoine Semenyo to Parkhead in the summer transfer window.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by Bristol World, who claim that the senior Celtic scout, Craig Strachan, was in attendance for Bristol City’s 2-1 win over Reading on Wednesday evening, with the 22-year-old centre-forward believed to be the focus of the talent-spotter’s gaze.

The report goes on to state that the Championship side are hoping to tie the striker down to a new deal at Ashton Gate, however, it is also claimed that the Robins would be willing to part with Semenyo this summer – should they receive an offer totalling somewhere around £20m for his services.

Considering just how impressive Semenyo has been for Bristol City so far this season, it is easy to see why Ange Postecoglou would be interested in a move for the 22-year-old this summer.

Indeed, over his 17 Championship appearances in the current campaign, the £1.08m-rated hitman has been in breathtaking form for the Robins, having already bagged five goals, registered six assists and created three big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of 2.1 shots and making 0.7 key passes per game.

These returns have seen the £3.5k-per-week forward who Phil Parkinson dubbed a “dangerous” player average a SofaScore match rating of 6.99, ranking him as Nigel Pearson’s fourth-best performer in the second tier of English football.

Furthermore, with Semenyo also being comfortable operating on the right-wing, the 22-year-old could very easily slot into Postecoglou’s front three, or even play in a front two alongside one of Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda or Giorgos Giakoumakis.

Either way, the signing of the Bristol City goal-machine would appear to be an extremely exciting one for the Bhoys, however, with a figure in the region of £20m being mooted for his services, whether or not Celtic will be looking to splash this sort of cash on a single target this summer is another matter entirely.
