Celtic have had a bid rejected by Belgian club K.A.S Eupen for Henry Onyekuru, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claim that the Bhoys have had a bid of £1million-plus rejected for the 19-year-old striker, who is also catching the attention of RB Leipzig and Fenerbahce.
The report details that Onyekuru would only be sold for at least £4million, meaning Celtic would have to add an extra £3million to their offer.
It is understood that manager Brendan Rodgers is keen on the speedy attacker and the player fancies a move to Scotland.
Onyekuru helped Eupen reach the top-flight in Belguim last season and he has continued to be a top performer this campaign.
The striker has scored 12 goals and supplied six assists from just 24 appearances so far in all competitions this season.
Football Insider verdict:
Celtic should seriously consider a move for the highly rated Onyekuru who has been impressing in Belgium. The 19-year-old would certainly fit into the Scottish club’s youth policy as manager Brendan Rodgers has assembled a strong young squad. A move to the Scottish league could be a good move for Onyekuru and give him the chance to put his name on the European map. However, the youngster would face a very tough battle to get into Celtic’s starting line-up. The Bhoys already have senior players Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele in their squad fighting for a starting position.
In other Celtic transfer news, the club’s defender has joined Kilmarnock on loan until the end of the season.
