Speculation is mounting over the futures of Celtic’s two key players, Josip Juranovic and Giorgos Giakoumakis. Both players have been linked with a move away from Parkhead and may be on their way out of Celtic in the New Year.
Juranovic has been on the World Cup circuit and is due to return to Celtic later this month. He is also on the West Ham transfer target list. The Daily Record reported talks over a new deal broke down, with both players now tipped to be on their way out.
Giakoumakis joined Celtic last summer from VVV Venlo in Holland, where he was top scorer in the Dutch top flight. He was signed on a five-year deal, but was unhappy with the terms of his contract. He agreed to cut his wage demand and move to Scotland, where he helped Celtic win a Scottish and a domestic double last season.
Giakoumakis has made an impact at Celtic, scoring eight goals in 21 games so far this season. However, the striker is unhappy with the terms of his contract and has been linked with a move away from Parkhead.
Despite the positives of the early part of the season, a number of Celtic first team players have been linked with departures during the current campaign. The latest name on the list is Greek striker Giorgos Giakoumakis. He is believed to be on the move and could leave in the New Year.
Giakoumakis moved to Glasgow from VVV-Venlo in Holland last summer. He scored 17 goals in his first season for the Hoops, helping them win a domestic double. However, he found his feet at Celtic very slowly. He was mainly used as a bench player for the first few months of the season. In fact, he made 14 of his 21 league and cup appearances from the bench.
Giakoumakis’s contract runs until 2026, but he has already attracted strong interest from European clubs. A recent Daily Record report has suggested that a deal for a new contract has broken down. Despite being offered a pay rise, Giakoumakis is unhappy with the terms on offer.
