Celtic must offer £700,000 to land Ghana 'Messi' Acheampong

Posted On Tuesday, 27th November 2012

Celtic will have to offer at least £700,000 if they are to stand any chance of landing Frank Acheampong, after the Ghanaian international’s club turned down a £625,000 bid from German side Borussia Moenchengladbach.

The 19-year-old Acheampong is currently on trial at Celtic Park having impressed for Buriram United, who play in Thailand’s Premier League, but the club’s owner, Newin Chidchob, has insisted that Acheampong – dubbed the ‘Ghana Messi’ – will not leave the side for a knockdown price.

“The fee [Moenchengladbach] offered wasn’t enough – he is worth more than that.

“There is a lot of interest in Frank, but we signed him when he was 16 and he is a big part of our team. We are in talks with several clubs.

“We want to sell him and won’t let him join any club on loan.”

The diminutive winger is thought to be a target for several Chinese clubs, and was linked with Serie A side Palermo in 2010, although the move never materialised.

Acheampong has scored 17 goals in 56 games for Buriram United and helped his side to fourth last season, taking them to the AFC Champions League Qualifying play-offs.

    He needs a good club for his development. Serie B or Championship will be an ideal place for his age.

  2. Mochacho-USA says:

    Hw do you define a gud club? And have you watch Celtic in the ECL?

    • Kay says:

      He needs a club that allows him to play regularly to avoid frustration and discouragement. Mohammed Abu is now regretting his move. Do you still remember Adiyia?
      Dede Ayew had to go to a junior team to sharpen his talent. Christian Atsu played in a lower division to gain vital experience before the senior side. That is exactly what Boakye Yiadom is doing now.
      Celtic is good but would they be patient with him? I wouldn’t mind if it’s Arsenal. I hope you understand where I am coming from.

  3. the cockerel says:

    Borussia Moenchengladbach would have been a very good move for our Frank. Middle to lower ranking Bundesliga clubs (with all respect to Moenchengladbach) tend to be fairly successful in developing young talent. Good luck, Frank!
