Former Celtic target Silas Wamangituka has reportedly had two bids rejected from European clubs.

The Paris FC striker was subject to a 4.5 and 5.5 euro move from Club Brugge and Braga.

The Hoops were reportedly interested in him in April according to the Scottish Sun but it’s come to nothing since.

The bids and the calibre of clubs show that Celtic should be blowing every team out the water get him.

For the majority of the season, the Hoops have had to rely on just Odsonne Edouard to lead the line.

Injuries and personal worries have kept Leigh Griffiths and Vakoun Bayo from the football field.

Eyebrows will have been raised as injuries are a temporary issue.

Nevertheless, Lennon reportedly looked into the Paris striker.

The 19-year-old scored 11 goals in 32 league appearances with two assists this season in Ligue 2. The club finished in the play-off spots for promotion, but Lens put them out of the running.

It’s true that the Congan does fit the bill for a Celtic player – he’s athletic, knows where the net is but he is also raw and learning his trade in France.

Celtic must be beating Club Brugge and Braga

The two European sides are competing to sign the striker with two bids rejected.

No disrespect to both sides, but Celtic blow both these teams away compared to stature and size.

The bids of 4.5/5.5 million is well within The Bhoys’ remit and can aim to go higher.

It’s definitely worth the gamble when Bayo cost close to that amount and Edouard was even higher.

Despite what the board will have some fans believe, the club are sitting on a goldmine of cash.

Wamanagituka would be the ideal candidate for the next star to be built up.
