Report: Celtic set to scout Union Berlin striker Sebastian Andersson

Celtic are set to scout Union Berlin striker Sebastian Andersson during their Bundesliga fixture with Paderborn, according to Bild.

The 28-year-old is also attracting admiring glances from Ajax, Brighton and Villarreal who will all be in attendance tomorrow.

Andersson is a striker who operates as a target man and he has nine goals to his name this season.

Odsonne Edouard is the leading talisman at Celtic Park and he has 12 goals and 13 assists to his name this season.

The Frenchman possesses the skills of a complete forward and having Andersson as a different option might be ideal.

The 28-year-old produced a stunning performance against Dortmund in August. He scored and claimed an assist during a famous 3-1 victory.


Celtic boss Neil Lennon is clearly keen to bolster his ranks and a striker might be a priority.

Andersson has nine caps for Sweden and has netted three goals for the national team.

Union Berlin are tenth in the Bundesliga and will be desperate to hold onto their star striker for the foreseeable.

Andersson is out of contract in the summer and could theoretically sign for Celtic for free once it expires.

TBR Verdict – Different style would make Andersson a good addition for Celtic.

Celtic have a few options when it comes to playing in the role of an energetic and busy striker but are short of a plan b option.

Andersson would tick that box pretty well and he could become a shrewd signing for Lennon.

Union Berlin are enjoying a strong season and the Swede has been a bit part of their successful first half of the campaign.

Whether Celtic can see off the likes of Ajax and Villarreal would remain to be seen but it’s certainly an option the Hoops should pursue.
