Celtic: Dean Jones makes Casper Tengstedt claim

Celtic: Dean Jones makes Casper Tengstedt claim - Celtic News

Rosenborg striker Casper Tengstedt is ‘one of the names in the frame’ for a move to Celtic, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Tengstedt speculation

The Hoops appear to be on the hunt for a new forward after already sealing three January signings.

Tengstedt first emerged as a target prior to the New Year, with reports suggesting that the Premiership champions were planning talks with the player’s representatives. It remains to be seen whether or not those discussions have since taken place, but Jones has had his say on a potential move.

The Latest: Jones’ comments

Talking to GiveMeSport, Jones was asked if Tengstedt is a genuine option for Celtic officials. He believes that the forward is ‘one of the names in the frame’, although he added that the 22-year-old is been talked about in other countries as well.

The journalist said of the Dane’s links with the Hoops: “I think he’s one of the names in the frame, but again, he’s someone that’s been talked about in terms of having potential in other countries too with some big clubs.

“So, the feeling is here that a lot is going to depend on the type of environment he sees himself fitting into for the next stage of his career. So, that might be key.”

Celtic fans, do you remember who Ange's first Hoops signing was?

The Verdict: Giakoumakis replacement?

It looks as if Giorgos Giakoumakis could leave Parkhead this month, with recent reports claiming that he may move to J-League 1 side Urawa Reds. Therefore, Tengstedt could be an ideal replacement for the Greek forward, with the 22-year-old already netting 35 senior goals.

He enjoyed a career-best campaign last year, contributing to a whopping 24 goals in just 14 Eliteserien games, so hopefully a move to Scotland can materialise in the coming days and weeks, should Giakoumakis move on from Glasgow.
