Swansea striker Jordan Ayew ‘seriously interesting’ Celtic

CELTIC’S top transfer priority for the Champions League qualifiers continues to be their front line.

The Hoops will take part in Europe’s most prestigious club competition after winning their seventh successive Scottish title.

But they will have to battle through four qualifying rounds to reach the group stages and land a £35 million-plus windfall.

With such rewards on offer, manager Brendan Rodgers is determined to get his main business done early.

To that end talks have been ongoing with Paris Saint-Germain aimed at securing a permanent deal for Edouard Odsonne.

The 20-year-old, who made a huge impact while on loan at Celtic Park in the 2017-18 season, is expected to sign for £5 million, plus add ons, in the next few days.

It has also emerged that Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew is “seriously interesting” the Hoops.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian international is expected to leave the Welsh club following their relegation from the Premier League.

Despite the Swans’ demotion, Ayew had a strong season, scoring 11 goals in all competitions.

He still has two years remaining on his contract but, according to his friend, Nana Oduro Sarfo, he is wanted by former Swans boss Rodgers.

“Jordan has had offers from several clubs. He will surely not play in the Championship with Swansea,” Sarfo, director of football at Ghanaian club Berekum Chelsea, is reported to have said.

“Celtic seem to be serious with their interest. I believe he may go to Scotland looking at how events are unfolding since they want to meet every demand.

“They speak English just like in England so he can express himself well in there and meet expectations in the league.”

It is anticipated there will be a significant turnover at Parkhead during the summer with Moussa Dembele liable to again be the target of English clubs.

While in that case a sale in the region of £30 million might appeal, they will undoubtedly look to rebuff any moves for core talent such as Kieran Tierney.
