AEK Athens are desperate to cash in on £5 million-rated Celtic target Vasilios Barkas.

The Greek No.1 is amongst a host of targets being assessed by Parkhead chiefs as they hunt a goalkeeper.

Barkas is on the options list and European clubs have been alerted to the fact that the Athens giants will not play hardball as they desperately seek much-needed funds to make alterations to their own squad.

Record Sport understands AEK major backer Dimitris Melissanidis and technical director Ilia Ivic held a recent meeting where it was decided that selling the 26-year-old would be a key way to offset recent frustrating hits to the club’s coffers.

Mohamed Elyounoussi to extend his loan move for one more season

  Mohamed Elyounoussi to extend his loan move for one more season Mohamed Elyounoussi has decided to extend his loan move to Celtic for one more season, and the deal is almost complete, with just paperwork left to be processed. As per a report from Arilas Ould-Saada, the International football correspondent for Norwegian media VG and VGTV, Elyounoussi has decided to stay with the Hoops for the 2020/21 campaign at it looks like Southampton have agreed to the deal too. The Norwegian spent the 2019/20 season on loan with the Hoops and after a bright start, he suffered an injury and even though he got himself back fit to play, the time on the sideline seemed to have hampered his performances.

AEK have suffered a tough recent spell with suspended sentences, fines and crowd bans from UEFA for fan trouble at Euro games, while COVID-19 also shut Greek football down for three months and forced play-off matches upon the game’s restart to be played behind closed doors meaning more damaging losses of revenue.

Ivic is believed to have pinpointed Barkas as a key sale as there is no need for a replacement to be purchased with current back-up keeper Panagiotis Tsintotas proven in the top team and lined-up to assume the full-time, first-choice slot.

Tsintotas’ progression means Barkas is seen as the club’s only saleable asset who could be lost without subsequent outlay and Montpellier and Leeds United are also assessing the situation.

Celtic had hoped to have a deal sealed for Fraser Forster this week, but that has been placed into serious jeopard.

The Englishman has not committed to a loan-to-buy move agreed by Southampton and the Scottish champions, although Saints boss Ralf Hassenhuttl has refused to close the door on Forster’s return to Celtic.

Recruitment chiefs are now scouring the market for alternatives with Craig Gordon’s departure to Hearts leaving Scotland international Scott Bain as the only recognised top-team choice currently at Parkhead with less than a month to go before the Scottish Premiership season is scheduled to begin.

Another potential target, David Marshall, is understood to have been offered a quick deal from another English Championship club as administration-hit Wigan look to get players out the door.

Celtic have held talks with Lyle Taylor's representatives .
Celtic held talks with the representatives of former Charlton Atheltic striker Lyle Taylor earlier this summer, according to a report from the Daily Record. The 30-year-old caused quite a stir when he refused to sign a mini-contract extension to finish the current season for the Addicks as he didn’t want to jeopardise any free transfer that he will make this summer and as such, he chose not to help Charlton in their battle to stay in the Championship, which led to plenty of criticism. As a free agent, Taylor is now free to sign with any club who is interested in taking him and the Record say that the Hoops are one of ten teams who’ve held talks with his agent.
