Report: Celtic linked to €9m striker with 10-goals in 19 games

Celtic have been linked with a move for Greek striker Vangelis Pavlidis. The Greece international currently plays for Holland Eridevise side Willem II.

According to report from Greek based website sporfm.gr, it’s being reported that the Glasgow club have made a reported offer of €6.3m and 10 per cent sell on clause for the services of the Greek man.

However, the Hoops bid was said to be rejected by Eridevisie side, with the Dutch club demanding a whooping €9m and a 10 per cent sell on clause.

The signing of Pavlidis would definitely be a boost for Celtic attack, as they are on the verge of their “nine in a row” title dominating run.

So far this season, Pavlidis has scored 10 goals in 19 games for Willem II, and is an integral part of the club having missed just one match thus far.

Should Celtic agrees a fee in the region of €9m for the striker, this will be one of Scottish Football’s most valuable transfers.

Celtic are also said to be targeting Polish youngster Patryk Klimala in this January transfer window, with the striker set for a medical with the club.

The Klimala deal is rumoured to be worth around £3.5m, and it looks like Celtic could be going big this month if both Klimala and Pavlidis are signed.

However with Willem II currently sat in fourth in the Eredivisie, we feel they are unlikely to want to sell their top marksman this month given how they are in with a chance of qualifying for Europe.
