There’s no doubt that seeing Henrik Larsson’s son thrive at Parkhead would be special, but you have to wonder if the pressure and never-ending desire to make comparisons to his Dad might take its toll.
Jordan Larsson has had an impressive career in his own right so far, with a prolific spell at Spartak Moscow showing that he could be a handy addition for Ange going into next season.
The situation in Russia means a lot of players are looking to get out, and it appears to be confirmed that Jordan Larsson will be available on a free:

While Fabrizio Romano doesn’t name Celtic as a destination, there have been further reports which suggest he is a target, and there are plenty of reasons to at least look into signing him.
He’s a player who’s scored goals at a very good level, he’s done enough to force his way into the Swedish national side and he’s still only 25, while you can also imagine there would be a boom in shirt sales with that famous name on the back.
You have to imagine it would also be an incredibly proud moment for Henrik to see his son follow in his footsteps, but you do have to wonder if the interest would be there if this was a player who had no family connection to the club.
