Celtic could be about to make an offer for Deportivo Alaves forward Patrick Twumasi, according to Football Ghana.
A two-time Ghanaian international, the 25-year-old only made the switch to Spain in July but he looks set to be on the move again after failing to score in La Liga during a disappointing 2018/19 campaign.
Football Ghana reports that Copenhagen are interested in offering Twumasi a fresh start in Denmark after he struggled to settle on Spanish shores, though Celtic are also interested in signing the versatile forward.
And Twumasi has a history with Celtic.
Back in August 2017, he scored twice as Astana beat Brendan Rodgers’ Hoops 4-3 in a thrilling Champions League qualifier, running Celtic’s defence ragged in a display of speed, power and clinical finishing.
Fortunately, The Bhoys won the first leg 5-0 so Twumasi’s exceptional display counted for little in the end. Twumasi was certainly a huge hit at Astana though, scoring 53 goals for the club and winning four Kazakhstan league titles.
Many Celtic fans will probably just see his horrendous record in Spain and say no chance but that might be a blessing in disguise for the Hoops as Celtic could snatch him at a bargain price as he is only valued at around £1 million.
Twumasi has fantastic pace and strength that could compliment both Edouard and Griffiths.
