A whole host of Celtic fans are fuming on Twitter as a fresh claim has emerged in their pursuit of Georgios Giakoumakis.
The Greek striker had previously been linked with Werder Bremen, although the German side have recently pulled out of the deal, leaving Celtic in pole position this summer, but there now appears to be a difference in expectations in terms of wage demands, as per Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos.
Will Celtic win the league this season?
Giakoumakis could be lined up as a potential replacement for Odsonne Edouard, who has been linked with a move to Brighton & Hove Albion this summer, and with Everton interested in the Seagulls’ Neal Maupay, that could trigger a move for Celtic’s French striker.
A lot of Celtic fans appear to be annoyed on Twitter with this latest transfer claim on Giakoumakis.
What have these Celtic fans been saying?
“Thinks he is bigger than the club, I doubt he was anywhere near that money previously.”
“Why should we treble his wages for a guy who has had one good season in his career. 7.5k should be the offer. Take it or leave it”
“What’s he on at the moment? For him to be demanding that kind of money after having one good season is a bit dodgy. Really big gamble going that high.”
“Move on Celtic”
“Why are we so tight”
“Getting bored of this now if we are 2nd choice he can stay in the Dutch 2nd division”
If Giakoumakis was to arrive at Celtic Park, he would become Ange Postecoglou’s ninth signing of the summer as he continues to overhaul a squad that finished 25 points behind Rangers in the SPFL last season.
The striker enjoyed a superb season last time out in front of goal in the Eredivisie, finishing as the league’s top scorer with 26 goals in 30 games, but that was not enough to keep VVV-Venlo in the top division in the Netherlands.
