Aron Johannsson’s red-hot start to the season with AZ Alkmaar has not gone unnoticed, especially not by Celtic.
According to a report out of the United Kingdom, Celtic are eyeing Johannsson with the hopes of signing him in the near future. The Scottish powerhouse currently employs forwards like Georgios Samaras and Anthony Stokes, but that is not stopping them from being interested in the 22-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team forward with nine goals to his name in the current European season.
Celtic, who are regulars in the UEFA Champions League, are no strangers to American players. They formerly had goalkeeper Dom Cervi on their books and expressed an interest in signing midfielder Sacha Kljestan back in 2009.
Johannsson has been a scoring sensation at the club level in recent years. He lit up the scoreboards in the Danish Superliga with AGF Aarhus before transferring to AZ this past January and doing well in the Eredivisie.
What do you think of Celtic having reported interest in Johannsson? Would you be in favor of him making the move to the Scottish club/league? Prefer to see him stick with AZ?
