£7million-rated 27-year-old Celtic star reportedly attracting EPL trio

Celtic vs Hearts

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is a wanted man in the English Premier League according to Daily Mail, with Swansea, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace all linked with a January transfer interest in the 27-year-old.

MLS outfit Sporting Kansas City are also said to be keen on the Scotland international, but the lure of the English topflight might be too big for him to turn down.

Griffiths has had to share playing minutes with the duo of Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard this term, and with the former also linked with an EPL exit, it looks unlikely that a deal will be reached for the £7million-rated hitman this window.

Although the former Hibs and Wolves man is still tied down at Parkhead until 2020, the urge to go prove himself as not just a flat-track bully capable of only shining in the SPFL could see him push for an exit. Griffiths has scored 6 league goals this term and always proven his quality since becoming a Hoops star.

With the Swans at the risk of relegating, they reckon his exploits in front of goal would come handy as they battle their way to safety, and while their chances of landing their man look very slim, nothing can be ruled out yet.
