Bristol City and Celtic could be handed a boost in their attempts to sign Andraz Sporar, according to Bristol Live.
The Slovan Bratislava striker has been in red-hot form so far this season and has been scouted by the Robins, but they face strong competition from Celtic and Dynamo Kiev should they want to sign him.
Bratislava have so far held firm in their attempts to keep the Sporar at the club – at one point saying they would not sell the in-form striker for anything less than £6-million – but fresh rumours have offered a hint that they may be willing to let Sporar leave.
According to Bristol Live via Ekipa.svet24.si, the tabloids claims the club are preparing for life after Sporar by making a £350k move for Lokomotiv Plovdiv striker Alen Ozbolt.
It could well mean that Slovan have softened their stance on keeping Sporar, who has 20 goals in 26 appearances to his name this season.
Bristol City have scouted the 25-year-old, who has previously ply his trade with Basel and Olimpija Ljubjana, as they seek to add to their attacking units this month.
Yet it is Celtic who we believe currently have the most interest in Sporar’s services and favorite to sign him, with manager Neil Lennon confirming the Hoops were keeping tabs on him.
However, the Hoops manager has denied rumours that the club had made a bid for Sporar.
