Celtic are continuing to monitor the situation of Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo, as claimed by journalist Pete O’Rourke in an interview with GiveMeSport.

The Ghana international enjoyed a productive campaign at Ashton Gate in 2021/22, registering 20 goal contributions in 31 Sky Bet Championship appearances; eight goals and 12 assists.

Following recent reports, it seems as if the Celts could be set for a transfer saga this summer as they eye another central striker.

Celtic have been watching Semenyo for ‘quite a long time’ – O’Rourke

Celtic have been watching the 22-year-old for quite some time according to journalist Pete O’Rourke, meaning they have a solidified knowledge of what he could offer at Parkhead.

The forward has another year left on his contract at Bristol City, though, they have the option to extend the contract by a further 12 months.

Commenting on Celtic’s interest in Semenyo, O’Rourke claimed:

“I think he’s someone that Celtic have been watching for quite a long time. There was talk of a possible move last summer, and also during the January transfer window, and I’m sure Celtic have continued to monitor his situation. He’s got potential, Semenyo”.

Celtic could definitely use another striker next season

In terms of bringing another forward into the building, there is no doubt that signing Semenyo would be a shrewd move by Celtic.

Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgios Giakoumakis have been brilliant additions to the club, however, both spent considerable time on the treatment table last season. In light of this, the Hoops had to use players from other positions in the central striking berth, including the likes of Liel Abada, Tom Rogic, and David Turnbull.

Being able to have another striker to rely upon would make sense for Celtic, whilst plenty of game-time would be on offer due to the strenuous nature of a campaign fighting on both domestic and European fronts.

Hopefully, Celtic can get a deal tied up for another striker before too long.
