Antoine Semenyo is expected to leave Bristol City, according to BristolLive writer Gregor MacGregor.
For some months, Semenyo, 22, has been linked with Celtic. The Bristol City ace reportedly quit his international responsibilities with Ghana over the weekend to explore a summer exit from Ashton Gate, according to sources.
Following MacGregor’s post on Saturday, other stories emerged indicating that Celtic were pursuing Semenyo.
Celtic have reportedly focus their efforts on Semenyo ahead of the summer transfer window, according to Ghanasoccernet.com.
It follows Semenyo’s outstanding season in the Championship under Nigel Pearson, in which he scored eight goals and assisted 12 in 31 appearances.
The attacker’s deal at Ashton Gate has one year left on it, with the club having the choice to extend it for another year.
This summer, Semenyo was bound to make headlines as a transfer target. Last season, there was a lot of buzz about him, and it’s starting up again as the summer transfer window approaches.
This summer will be full of reports, but one name we can count on is MacGregor.
Bristol City will not allow Semenyo leave without a fight this summer, and they don’t have to given his contract status.
He’s a quality player who, if Pearson can add a few more names to his ranks this summer, could easily propel Bristol City to a better finish in the Championship next season.
Last season, the team began to stabilise under Pearson, who did an excellent job of developing a slew of brilliant youngsters, one of which was Semenyo.
