EGYPTIAN side Al-Ahly have slapped a £4.15 million price tag on reported Celtic target Afsha...despite accepting a £300,000 bid for him from a Turkish side in August.

The creative playmaker is an international teammate of Liverpool icon Mo Salah and is tipped to become their next big import to European football.

The Egyptian media have claimed Celtic enquired about him recently to look into the possibility of loaning or buying the 26-year-old.

The Cairo club's manager Marcel Koller insisted last week the player was not for sale under any circumstances.

However, they appear to have had a change of heart and after a meeting between the club's president, Mahmoud Al-Khatib and Al-Ahly's staff they have now announced he can leave if someone meets their asking price of 5 million US dollars [£4.15m].

The club stated: "Following a meeting between the president and the football sector planning committee, it was agreed Afsha will not be sold for less than 5 million dollars.

"We believe it is a very appropriate amount for the player’s capabilities and also for the price of the transfer market at the present time and his agent was informed of Al-Ahly’s conditions.

"This was done with the blessing of the technical staff and manager Marcel Koller."

Al-Ahly accepted a £300,000 offer for the player in August from Turkish side Sivasspor, but the deal collapsed.

And it appears his market value has considerably increased since then.
