Reports: Premier League clubs rival Celtic for Euro 2016 quarter-final hero

By Harvey Byrne

A number of Premier League clubs have asked about Celtic target and Euro 2016 star Hal Robson-Kanu, according to a report.

Sky Sports claim that four Premier League clubs have been in contact with Wales striker Robson-Kanu’s representatives since he scored in Friday’s stunning quarter-final win over Belgium.

The 27-year-old struck Wales’ second goal to put his national side in front with a stunning Cruyff turn and finish on the same day that he became a free agent.

The London-born player, who’s primarily a left-winger, let his contract run down at Championship side Reading and his preference is a move to the top-flight of English football.

However, it is understood that he has also received enquiries from China and the UAE.

The Express claim that Swansea are one of the Premier League club’s involved, but they are set to face competition from Celtic, who are managed by his former mentor in the Reading youth set-up, Brendan Rodgers.

The pacy attacker has scored two goals for Wales during the European Championships and has an overall record of three goals in 33 appearances for his country.

Robson-Kanu starred for the Royals in 35 encounters across all competitions in the recently completed season scoring five goals and providing seven assists.

In other Celtic news, Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the Bhoys are keen on signing former Liverpool defender Kolo Toure.
