Celtic need to sign a striker next summer, that is very clear. Adam Idah has done a decent job since arriving in the winter but he is only on loan until the end of the season from Norwich City with the Hoops not even having an option to sign permanently included in the deal. On the other hand, Oh Hyeon-gyu has barely featured in the second half of the campaign and there have to be serious question marks over his future at the club.

Many Celtic fans would want the club to sign Idah on a permanent basis. On the other hand, there are those who would like them to bring in someone who is more of a natural goalscorer and has a proven record, considering that it is expected to take a transfer fee around £5 million to sign the Irishman from Norwich City.

Bojan Miovski is someone Celtic have been linked with for quite some time. And in the eyes of many, he would be perfect.

Miovski has been tremendous since arriving at Aberdeen. He has scored 24 goals this season and that includes multiple against Celtic and the Rangers. But signing him, will not be a simple task for the Hoops.

Celtic handed £5 million Bojan Miovski transfer blow

It looks like it would take a fee north of £5 million to sign Miovski. As reported by 67 Hail Hail, Superscoreboard host, Gordon Duncan, said:

"Let’s just say, I’m reliably informed that £5 million wouldn’t cut it for Bojan Miovski.

“That’s that’s the word that’s reaching me right now. I don’t need you to say anymore.

“People listening to this show, I’m reliably informed that you’ll need to add a little bit more."

Of course, that would represent a record transfer fee between two Scottish clubs. The current one is Scott Brown's move from Hibernian to Celtic back in 2007.

It remains to be seen how Celtic strengthen up in the upcoming summer transfer window. For now, the focus has to be on finishing the season strong and with a couple of trophies, with the Premiership and Scottish Cup still up for grabs.
