Celtic are interested in Trabzonspor forward Caleb Ekuban according to Fanatik.

Per the source, the Scottish giants are prepared to offer €5m for the Trabzonspor star.

The Black Sea based outfit want to keep hold of Ekuban but will consider their star man leaving if Celtic increase their offer to €7m.

Trabzonspor signed the 25-year-old for just €1m from Leeds last season.

The Ghana international had an impressive season scoring 10 goals and providing 11 assists in 34 appearances for Trabzonspor.

The Claret-Blues finished the Super Lig as runners-up and lifted the Turkish Cup.

Despite finishing as runners-up Trabzonspor will not compete in the Champions League next season due to receiving a ban from UEFA over breaching their Financial Fair Play agreement.

As a result the club will have to sell players in order to make additional signings and meet their FFP terms in order to avoid further punishment.

Ekuban has another two-years remaining on his Trabzonspor contract.

The Ghana international was born in Italy and has EU citizenship and has previously played for Chievo, FK Partizani and Leeds United.
