Celtic: Kieran Devlin rates chances of Hoops signing Jordan Larsson

Celtic: Kieran Devlin rates chances of Hoops signing Jordan Larsson -Celtic

Celtic reporter Kieran Devlin has been reacting to the likelihood of the Hoops signing Henrik Larsson’s son, Jordan, in January.

Larsson is just 24 years of age but has already scored 64 senior goals and currently plies his trade with Spartak Moscow, where he is under contract until 2023.

The centre-forward, who can also play as an attacking midfielder or as a right-winger, is valued at £12.6m by Transfermarkt and was linked with a move to Parkhead in the summer.

As we know, a move never materialised, with Celtic bringing in Kyogo Furuhashi, Jota, Liel Abada and Giorgos Giakoumakis to bolster their attacking ranks.

However, Devlin has now responded to the possibility of the Hoops making a winter window switch for Larsson.

Do you want to see Larsson at Celtic Park?

Yes, he has to!

Not too bothered!

The Latest: Devlin’s response

Devlin shared a story on The Athletic on Wednesday, looking at which areas Celtic could look to add to in January.

He stated his claim for Celtic to bring in two midfielders and a left-back in the New Year and asked fans for their thoughts.

One supporter name-checked summer target, midfielder Patrick Berg, along with Larsson.

This is what Devlin had to say in reply, claiming a number of Premier League sides are monitoring the forward and so the Bhoys could well miss out.

“Like Berg but think the boat might have been missed on him after his performance against Roma. Larsson almost certainly outside of Celtic’s budget I imagine, a number of EPL sides monitoring him I understand.”

The Verdict: Other areas need bolstering first…

Larsson, described as a ‘great player’, could be a brilliant signing for Celtic with his family connections and impressive form for Moscow last season, however, the Hoops have other areas they need to add to first before they can think about spending big on another forward.

As Devlin mentions, at least one midfielder appears to be needed, with Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and David Turnbull playing a lot of football under Ange Postecoglou.

They could also do with sorting out their left-back ranks with a number of players featuring in that position due to Greg Taylor’s absence, so a big-money attacking addition may not be the best idea at this moment in time.
