Columbus Crew remain in Celtic talks for Zurawski

Celtic striker Maciej Zurawski remains a target for MLS outfit Columbus Crew.

Celtic hope to offload surplus striker Zurawski before the close of the transfer window following a firm move by Columbus Crew, says the Daily Mail.

Despite efforts to find a buyer in England and Germany, Zurawski's lack of action has hampered efforts to sign him. A Parkhead demand for a £1m transfer fee may yet prove prohibitive, with the American outfit willing to pay no more than £400,000.

Should Zurawski ship out, that would release £12,000 a week from the wage bill and raise the possibility of a replacement being targeted before Thursday.
