£12m bid reportedly rejected: Celtic must beat PL side to sign Serie A powerhouse - view
Different to Dembele and Griffiths
Hoops striker Griffiths has starred this season already, scoring four goals in his last two games and showing his renowned technical abilities in abundance.
With the former Wolves striker known best for scoring with the ball at his feet and Moussa Dembele renowned for his blistering pace, signing Zapata would give Celtic something different.
His sensational strength and power would bowl over Scottish Premiership opponents, allowing him to score himself as well as bringing other attackers into play.
In other Celtic transfer news, Rodgers has confirmed his interest in this Premier League attacker.
