Report: Celtic, Newcastle and Leeds all keen on signing Sebastian Andersson

The Bundesliga striker seems certain to leave Union Berlin in the summer.

Celtic, Leeds and Newcastle are all thought to be vying for the services of Union Berlin striker Sebastian Andersson, according to German outlet Kicker.

The trio aren’t thought to be the only interested party for his services. Schalke, Bournemouth, West Brom and Brentford are also monitoring the 28-year-old.

Andersson enjoyed a decent 2019/20 campaign in the Bundesliga, firing 12 goals to help Union Berlin avoid relegation.

Leeds are on course for a return to the Premier League and bolstering their striking options will probably be a priority.

Patrick Bamford has flattered to device this season and there is little evidence throughout his career of him being a regular top-flight goalscorer.

 

The lure of Champions League football will surely put Celtic near the front of the queue; although Andersson might see a drop from the Bundesliga to the SPL as a backward step.

Newcastle could be an interesting move for Andersson. Steve Bruce has got the Magpies playing really well and last night’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth leaves them 13th in the league.

After wasting money on Joelinton, Newcastle will need to get their next striker signing right, however, which might put pressure on Andersson.

The report suggests that whoever does sign the uncompromising Swede won’t need to break the bank.

Kicker claim that Andersson has a single-digit release clause, although that will increase by 30% should he move to a club outside of Germany.

It will be interesting to see who takes the chance on Andersson with his days at Union Berlin seemingly numbered.

The nine-time international might just prove a shrewd signing given his low release clause and his ability to score goals.
