ED AARONS, the Deputy News Editor of Guardian sport, has claimed that Celtic are interested in Union Berlin’s Swedish striker Sebastian Andersson. The 28-year-old target man is reportedly being considered by the Scottish Champions as the club look to strengthen ahead of the 10IAR season.
Some interest from Newcastle, West Brom and Celtic in Sweden striker Sebastian Andersson from Union Berlin

Andersson was linked with a move to Celtic back at the start of June; however the news from Aarons suggests that Neil Lennon is still interested in bringing the striker to the club. With 36 games under his belt this season for the Bundesliga side, notching 13 goals and claiming 3 assists.
Whilst Celtic are interested, Aarons also claims that Premier League club Newcastle United as well as Premier League hopefuls West From are keen on bringing the player to their respective clubs.
Andersson would give Celtic a different dimension as the strength and height would be a force to be reckoned with in Europe and tricky domestic games – like Livi away. It would also help having someone at the club that could play that troublesome role that may allow the defenders to improve their own abilities against target men. Dykes of Livi was troublesome enough last year
Celtic have already moved to bring in Moi Elyounoussi on another season long loan from Southampton as the preparations for the 10IAR bid ramp up. A goalkeeper remains at the top of Neil Lennon’s wish-list with news from Fraser Forster’s camp that a return to Glasgow appears unlikely.
