Published

Celtic have made an approach to ask about a deal to bring one of their long-term targets to the Scottish Premiership, according to a fresh report that has emerged.

 

Hoops eyeing Kvistgaarden

Ahead of January, Brendan Rodgers will be assessing

his options in the market to see if there are any players he could strengthen his squad with.

One recently identified is Brondby forward Mathias Kvistgaarden if claims are to be believed.

 

The Bhoys are reportedly preparing an improved offer for the striker having seen their opening bid turned down over the summer,

but should a deal for him fail to come to fruition for whatever reason, the hierarchy appear to have alternative centre-forward targets.

Sturm Graz’s Szymon Wlodarczyk only put pen to paper

at his club during the previous window from Gornik Zabrze where he’s so far made 28 appearances to date

(Transfermarkt – Wlodarczyk statistics), but he was on the board’s radar long before his most recent move.

Back in January, Mark Hendry first claimed that Poland’s youth international was of interest

to the green and white stripes, though a switch hasn’t yet taken place, hence why he moved elsewhere, and it still sounds

like the 20-year-old won’t be making the trip to Glasgow anytime soon despite new efforts.

Celtic submit enquiry for Wlodarczyk

According toFootball Scotland, Celtic have asked about signing Wlodarczyk again next month,

but after learning his price tag in a response from Sturm Graz, have decided that they couldn’t afford to complete a deal in January.

 

“Football Scotland can also reveal Celtic reached out to

Sturm Graz in an effort to revisit another former transfer target, Szymon Wlodarczyk,

but were told his valuation has sky-rocketed to around £15m which would financially be out of their reach in January.”

 

 

 

 

Wlodarczyk is a “highly talented” striker

Since joining Sturm Graz, Wlodarczyk has racked up 11 contributions (nine goals and two assists) from 28 appearances,

displaying how prolific he can be in the final third,

and he’s able to pose a constant threat to the opposition’s defence in the attacking areas of the pitch.

 

Sponsored by Adidas, Walbrzych’s native has recorded 32 shots over the course of the current

campaign which is more than any other of his fellow teammates, highlighting what a standout

performer he is in front of the net compared to his peers (FBRef – Sturm Graz statistics).

 

Standing at 6 foot 2, Rodgers’ target is also able to provide a real physical presence up top with his height,

with his ability to win aerial duels making him

a real handful for any backline to deal with,

alongside how dangerous he can be with the ball at his feet.

Described by football scout Jacek Kulig, Wlodarczyk is a “highly talented” player with an extremely

bright future ahead of him, but with Celtic not set to
