West Ham striker Michail Antonio is being linked with a move to Celtic, it has been reported.
As the transfer rumours about the future of Michail Antonio continue to swirl, a new club is reported to have joined the race for the 33 year-old.
Scottish giants Celtic have emerged in the race for Antonio’s signature this summer as he eyes a move away from the club, however, a move for Antonio to Celtic would likely be brought with questions concerning the futures of Kyogo Furuhashi and Oh Hyeon-gyu for the Hoops, as Antonio would likely want to be a starter.
Reported by FootballTransfers, Antonio would be keen on the move away from West Ham, with the Jamaican on the radar of both Leeds and Nottingham Forest alongside Celtic. An approach from Steven Gerrard’s Al Ettifaq fell through last month, too.
Despite being keen on a move away from the club – and with many clubs interested in his services – ExWHUEmployee reports that David Moyes would like Antonio to remain at the club.
Since the recent sale of Gianluca Scamacca to Serie A outfit Atalanta, West Ham are left with just Antonio, Danny Ings and youth prospect Divin Mubama as forward options.
Michail Antonio is the all-time Premier League top scorer for West Ham with 61 goals, and should a move to Celtic materialise, the Hoops would have a proven, experienced talisman to partner their already-prolific Kyogo Furuhashi.
