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 would be a good choice

Remember folk complaining about us signing Skippy and that turned out not too shabby, personally I would sign Miovski and Shankland

I’d take miovski but I can’t see the lawwells paying 4m+ for a Scottish based player.
SVD should be good for us though

Aberdeen striker would be the one the club should be after ,£4m and MJ should be what the club offer

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.
