Ange can seal big Kyogo upgrade with £3.5k-p/w Celtic target who has “power and pace”
3 minute read
With the Hoops ending their previous campaign with the Premiership title under their belt and more goals scored (92) than any other team in the top flight, it’s safe to say that those attacking players were impressive additions to the club.
One of those who had a solid debut season at Parkhead is Kyogo Furuhashi, who found the net 12 times in 20 league appearances.
Now that the 2022/23 season is fast approaching, the remaining weeks of the summer transfer window could give Ange Postecoglou the chance to strengthen his squad in order to give them the best chance of not only securing the league title once again but also being as successful as possible in Europe.
One player who has been mentioned with a move to Celtic and who could be a potential upgrade on Furuhashi is Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo.
Last season saw the 22-year-old score eight goals and provide 12 assists in 31 Championship appearances, which shows that while he may not have scored as many league goals as Furuhashi, the Robins striker showed how capable he is of setting up goalscoring opportunities for his team-mates.
Bearing in mind how the Celtic attacker could only provide two assists in the Premiership, this is an area where Semenyo, who is currently earning £3.5k-per-week, could be an upgrade on the Japanese attacker.
Do Celtic need to sign another attacker this summer?
To further highlight Semenyo’s attacking talent, his manager Nigel Pearson said that the striker “is a real threat with his power and pace.”
Taking all this into account, it’s safe to argue that the Bristol City star certainly has the attacking prowess to be a suitable addition to Celtic’s squad and potentially put Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis’ places in the team at risk.
Should Postecoglou want to add another attacker to his squad who can be just as reliable when it comes to creating goals as well as scoring them, securing a deal for Semenyo could be the ideal next move for the Hoops.
