FIORENTINA are monitoring Celtic striker Georgios Samaras with a view to making a bid in the summmer.
• Georgios Samaras attracting interest from Fiorentina, according to reports
• Samaras entering final year of contract but believed to be eager to stay
The Greek forward has enjoyed one of his best seasons in the green and white hoops, scoring five Champions League goals and scoring 11 over the season.
Champions League-chasing Fiorentina will look to recruit Samaras as they launch a bid to break into Europe’s elite club competition.
Samaras will enter the final year of his contract in the summer, and Celtic are thought to be keen to tying the Greek international down to an extension, according to the Record.
Celtic are thought to be encouraged by Samaras’ desire to stay at Celtic, but as contract talks have not yet opened it may yet pave the way for the Serie A outfit to make a bid.
