‘A Good Choice’ ‘Never Scored 20 Goals In A Season’ Fans Debate Whether Celtic Should Sign £5M Rated Striker

Celtic laboured to a 1-0 win against Ross County on Saturday and it has prompted more talk about the Hoops recruiting a forward before the transfer window closes later this week.

The likes of Bologna’s Sydney van Hooijdonk and Hearts’ Lawrence Shankland have been linked with a move to Parkhead recently.

However, after scoring 17 goals in all competitions for Aberdeen this season, fans on X have been discussing whether the Scottish champions should sign Bojan Miovski instead:

Miovski won’t be available on the cheap

At the start of the month, it was reported that Aberdeen would demand in excess of the £5m they received from Liverpool for Calvin Ramsay a couple of years ago.

It is believed that the Dons feel justified in their valuation because he is still only 24 years of age and the fact that the North Macedonian international has plenty of suitors, including clubs in Germany, Italy and Spain.

Celtic may consider lower-cost alternatives

The Hoops have been particularly reluctant to spend big on players based in the Scottish Premiership over the years so there is some pessimism that they would be willing to meet Aberdeen’s demands for Miovski.

In contrast, van Hooijdonk could be sold for closer to £4m, which may make the Dutchman the favourite to be brought in before the transfer deadline.
