Celtic have made a ‘concrete approach’ for striker Tino Kadewere but the Hoops face competition in the race to sign him.
According to Sport Witness, Celtic and Brazilian outlet Flamengo have both made ‘concrete approaches’ to Le Havre over a potential move for the Zimbabwe international.
Kadewere emerged as a target for the Hoops last weekend, and freelance journalist Robin Bairner believes the 23-year-old would break the club’s transfer record should they pursue a move this month.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
News that Celtic have made a ‘concrete approach’ for Kadewere will certainly interest a number of supporters, given how Slovan Bratislava striker Andraz Sporar appeared to be the man the Hoops were after until now.
Celtic have held talks with Slovan over a move for Sporar, and previous reports have claimed he is Lennon’s “top target.”
However discussions with Le Havre over a move for Kadewere suggests the Hoops are considering a number of options.
One thing that does appear to be certain however is the pair are likely to cost Celtic similar fees, though Kadewere appears the more expensive given a reported £10m price tag.
Sporar meanwhile is said to be valued in the region of €7m-€8million.
