Report claims Celtic remain keen on £5 million Swedish striker Sebastian Andersson

Celtic could be on the hunt for a new striker this summer.

Celtic are reportedly still interested in a potential deal for Union Berlin striker Sebastian Andersson. 

That is according to a report from Fotboll Skanalen in Sweden, who name Celtic as one of several teams who are keen on the player. 

It is suggested Celtic have been tracking the player along with Brighton and Hove Albion, Valencia and Villarreal also keen on the player. 

Brighton, in particular, are set to pick up their interest in the player who is valued at around £5 million.

It follows up on a report from Bild in December last year that first presented the idea of Celtic having an interest in the Swedish star. 

 

The 28-year-old has been in good form for the capital club in the Bundesliga this season. Andersson has scored 13 goals in 32 games and starred in a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in August, with one goal and an assist in a 3-1 victory.

It would be a surprise for Celtic to make a move for Andersson at present. However, if the Bhoys were to lose their star frontman Odsonne Edouard, who has been linked with several big-money moves this summer, then trying to lure the nine-cap international to Parkhead could be a good idea. 

The 6ft 3ins star, who previously played for the likes of Kaiserslautern, IFK Norrkoping, and Djurgardens, would not bring the same attributes as Edouard but he would certainly help replace the goal vacuum left behind if the Frenchman is lured away. 

If Celtic are going to need to bring in a new striker, then Andersson might be a potentially perfect fit.
