Celtic are one of two clubs to have made ‘concrete approaches’ for Le Havre striker Tino Kadewere.
That’s according to RMC Sport, who say that the striker ‘stirs the lusts’ in the January transfer window, with several proposals already with the French club.
Kadewere has been in red-hot form for Le Havre this season, with 17 goals in 19 games putting him top of the Ligue 2 goalscoring charts.
It’s the kind of form that has not gone unnoticed, with RMC Sport reporting that a whole host of clubs are keen to sign the striker this month.
Indeed, Le Havre are said to ‘no longer have much hope’ of retaining Kadewere, suggesting the interest is fierce.
Celtic are among those interested and RMC claim the Scottish champions are one of two clubs, alongside Brazilian team Flamengo, to have made ‘concrete approaches’ so far.
There is no mention of the level of this approach, or indeed if any money has been offered, just that one has been made.
Qatar side Al-Rayan have already made two €8m bids, though, so it’s fair to presume that Le Havre would be looking for at least that much from Celtic.
There have also been discussions with Lyon, but they are on the backburner, as are Marseille, who will only make a move if they sell a striker themselves.
There are also interested parties in the Premier League and they ‘should be positioning themselves’, but recent suggestions that agent Willie McKay has a ‘mandate’ to put him in England’s topflight are not accurate.
Celtic, and the other interested clubs, may face a fight to convince the player to move this month anyway.
RMC say Le Havre would sell but take the player back on loan until the end of the season, an idea that is shared by the player and his agent.
