Celtic make £1.75m offer for striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo

Celtic make £1.75m offer for striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo Celtic have reportedly placed a £1.75 million offer for Dunajska Streda striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo, according to the Express, cited by the Daily Record. The 21-year-old has been a regular for Dunajska Streda in Slovakia’s top division, finding the back of the net on 18 occasions in 23 appearances this season. And with Hoops’ record signing Odsonne Edouard struggling with a muscle injury and Leigh Griffiths taking time away from the game, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is short of options in an attacking sense. Moussa Dembele also left Celtic Park on the final day of the summer transfer window, joining French side Lyon in a deal worth £20 million. However, with Celtic favourites to land Paris Saint-Germain’s American youth international Timothy Weah next month, the club have also tabled an offer for Issouf Bayo. The Ivory Coast under-23 international has helped his current club to second in the Slovak Super Liga, and with a host of European sides monitoring his progress, Celtic could well be landing a future star next month.

Vakoun Issouf Bayo (born 10 January 1997) is an Ivorian footballer who plays for Dunajská Streda as a forward. Bayo joined Dunajská Streda in March 2018.

Dunajska Streda’s sporting director Jan van Daele has confirmed that Celtic have made a bid for Vakoun Issouf Bayo, but he says his club have rejected the offer.

“Speaking to Sky Sports News: Van Daele said”

“We confirm we have received a bid from Celtic but refused the bid as it did not match our expectations.”

However, Van Daele confirmed that the Slovakian club will be willing to sell the Ivorian forward if Celtic up their offer.

“We are in direct contact with Celtic club officials and we are open to negotiating with Celtic.”

The Scottish champions reportedly made a bid of £1.75million for the 21-year-old, but Dunajska Streda have told Celtic that they want around £2.3million for their star player.

Celtic told to up their bid for Vakoun Issouf Bayo

Celtic told to up their bid for Vakoun Issouf Bayo Celtic have been told that they will need to up their bid for Vakoun Issouf Bayo to nearly £3 million. According to the Daily Record, Bayo’s side Dunajska Streda are demanding a fee of £2.7 million for the striker after rejecting the Hoops’ first offer, which was believed to be in the region of £1.75 million. Brendan Rodgers’ side have been heavily linked with a move to sign the player in January and have already had one offer turned down. The Scottish champions are not alone in their pursuit of the player, Rapid Vienna and Italian side Parma have also made moves to sign the striker. Celtic are in the market for a striker, with Paris Saint-Germain youngster Timothy Weah also believed to be closing in on a loan move to the club. The position has been something of a problem area for the Hoops this season, with Odsonne Edouard left with all the responsibility in front of goal.

FC DAC 1904 Dunajská Streda is a Slovak football team, based in Dunajská Streda . In the 2007 to 2008 season, the team were the west group champions of the Slovak Third League.

Dunajska Streda keen to talk after Celtic make £1.75million bid for in-form striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo . Slovakian side Dunajska Streda have admitted they are willing to consider a deal. Celtic are also chasing a right-back but may miss out on Timothy Catasgne.

Revealed: Why Vakoun Issouf Bayo picked Celtic over Inter.
New Celtic signing Vakoun Issouf Bayo had a big choice to make before leaving his old club. Did he want to go to Celtic, or Internazionale? Two clubs steeped in history, and a slightly less dramatic retelling of the famous 1967 European Cup final. It was to be another good result for the Hoops, however, as the forward opted to make the move to Glasgow. Reports are now suggesting that the Cote d’Ivoire international chose Celtic Park over the San Siro because of the increased playing time he would be likely to receive in Scotland.
