According to The Team, the Girondins de Bordeaux have reportedly made an offer for the Celtic Glasgow striker, Georgios Giakoumakis, 28 years old. He is a Greek international striker (11 caps, 2 goals) and the offer would be between 2.5 and 3 million euros. Under contract until June 2026, the striker is having a good season since he has scored 9 goals in 30 matches in all competitions.
Born on December 9, 1994 in Heraklion, this 1.85m (84 kg) player, playing only as a centre-forward, is estimated at 5 million euros by Transfermarkt.
He had a career almost exclusively in Greece since 2011 with Atsalenios, Episkopi, Platanias, AEK Athens, OFI Crete, then made a passage through Poland in Gornik abrze, then in the Countries at VVV Venlo. Since 2021-2022, he has been playing at Celtic.
It remains to be seen whether it is not too late because Georgios Giakoumakis because the Greek striker would be coveted by several clubs and would even have given his agreement to join Sampdoria.
We feel that the Girondins de Bordeaux, with all these rumors around a center forward, are close to signing a player, who should be the replacement for Albert Elis, who wants to leave the Gironde. With amounts around 2 to 3 million euros, we can also see that the club with the scapular still has a small strike force, especially on the scale of Ligue 2. At this stage, the e are talking about Joel Asoro, Jérémy Livolant or Ola Brynhildsen. To be continued…
