Celtic will be looking to bring in a new striker or two this summer, with many of the current guard set to depart.

Colin Kazim-Richards looks set for a shock move to Brazil whilst Carlton Cole is unlikely to be kept on. Nadir Ciftci is also looking unlikely to stay and it is now being suggested that Stefan Scepovic is set for a permanent move to Spanish side Getafe.

The Daily Mail has reported that Scepovic is indeed Getafe bound this summer.

The Serbian striker joined Celtic from Sporting Gijon in 2014. He had impressed with the Spanish side - scoring 23 goals in 41 games – but failed to have a similar impact at Celtic.

He managed just six goals in 26 appearances before being loaned to Getafe at the start of last season.

However, a permanent move to the Spanish side would also come as something of a shock.

The 26-year-old, who has eight caps for the Serbian national team, has not exactly been on fire at the club – netting just three goals in 20 appearances.

Getafe were also relegated to Segunda Liga this season, so it would be a surprise if they decided to keep hold of him.

Undoubtedly Scepovic’s future appears to be away from Celtic – but a move to Getafe may not be as cast iron as it appears.
