Report: Celtic set sights on Aarhus defender Casper Hojer

Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Aarhus defender Casper Hojer.

According to The Daily Record, the 25-year-old is a new target for the Hoops with a potential deal for Alfie Doughty having stalled.

It is thought Charlton Atheltic do not want to sell and the League One side are remaining firm over their young talent.

Celtic chiefs are said to favour Doughty, but they know they may have to consider alternative options with time in the widow running out.

At Aarhus, Hojer has just one year remaining on his contract and could cost just £1.5 million to sign.


The star, who is also said to be interesting Watford, has 15 caps for Denmark and has made almost 100 appearances for his current club.

Respectably, he has produced 20 assists from left-back and scored nine goals.

TBR’s View – A hidden gem?

It looks like Celtic could struggle to land Doughty, but Hojer seems like a potentially decent alternative.

He has quite a bit more experience under his belt, and 15 international caps to his name would suggest a degree of quality.

Furthermore, the fact he has made 20 assists in his 92 appearances for Aarhus clearly suggests an aptitude for attacking and creating.

Rated at just £1.5 million, Hojer could prove to be very shrewd business by Celtic.
