Giorgos Giakoumakis may be a transfer target for an unnamed club in Saudi Arabia, according to a rather hazy story in The Sun.
Readers are instructed to support the narrative that the striker would gain from a better atmosphere in addition to a pay that would change his or her life. Beyond that, not much is known about a potential transfer for the player, who has a deal with Celtic through May 2026.
The Daily Record reported at the end of last month that negotiations regarding a new Celtic deal had fallen down because the organization had not kept its half of the bargain when the August 2021 contract was signed.
Since then, it has come to light that Giakoumakis has changed agents, which connects the entire narrative together and ties Celtic to a few forwards, most notably Cho Gue-sung, who shone for South Korea at the World Cup Finals:
Giorgos Giakoumakis, a striker for CELTIC, may receive a life-altering offer to transfer to Saudi Arabia after contract negotiations failed.
When the Greek frontman joined the Hoops at the beginning of the season, he signed a five-year contract.
Long-time advisor Ioannis Emmanouilidis was replaced by new agent Blash Hosseini, who has been tasked with finding new teams for his client.
Giakoumakis’ scoring record at the Hoops and with Dutch team VVV Venlo prior to it may have enticed oil-rich Saudi sides, who may also provide a better environment.
Prior to the transfer window starting in 18 days, it is also believed that teams in England and Germany are closely monitoring the situation.
Giakoumakis and Kyogo Furuhashi share the goal scoring responsibilities for Celtic, therefore it’s doubtful that any transfers will be finalized before Ange Postecoglou signs a new striker.
