Celtic are reportedly considering making a move for Aberdeen striker Bojan Miovski. The Scottish Champions are keen to strengthen in the January window and a striker has been noted as being crucial to Brendan Rodgers’ plans.
According to The Sun, Celtic have watched the North Macedonian star in every game this season as they monitor whether or not to launch a bid with possibly both Kyogo and Oh facing a period away competing in the Asia Cup. Miovski has a proven track record in Scotland, scoring 11 goals this season.
The report continues that in order to prise the 24-year-old away from Pittodrie then Celtic will need to be willing to part with upwards of £4.4m, the fee paid to Hibernian by Gordon Strachan’s Celtic in 2007. The Dons rate Mivoski in that £5m ballpark, which is indicative of the value they see in the striker.
Since joining Aberdeen, Miovski has scored 29 goals and assisted on 6 occasions in 65 appearances for the Granite City side. It is in their new trading model to buy players that they can flip and sell at the peak of their value, should Celtic be interested in progressing then there is certainly a chance that a deal can be done and, hopefully, quickly as English Championship sides will likely be scouting the former MTK Budapest star.
Rodgers has spoken about the need for quality additions to his side, with three/four suggested. Up front is one of the key areas identified by supporters as requiring depth, along with left back, defensive midfield, and in goals. However, it remains to be seen how busy Celtic are in January as it can be a difficult time to do business.
Hopefully, there is something in this and Celtic proceed with their interest in Miovski but not before he helps Aberdeen to a League Cup triumph.
