Sebastian Andersson: Five things you need to know…

  • Andersson came through the youth ranks at Swedish club Angelholm and spent time at Kalmar FF, Djugarden and Norrkoping, all in Sweden.
  • In 2017, the 28-year-old moved to Germany, joining FC Kaiserslautern, where he spent a year, before signing for Union Berlin.
  • Andersson helped Union Berlin earn promotion to the Bundesliga, bagging 12 goals in the second division in 2018/19.
  • The Swede amassed 12 goals in his debut Bundesliga season while chipping in with 3 assists as well, helping them stay up in the league.
  • Andersson has featured 9 times for the Swedish national team, scoring 3 goals.

The report states that Celtic manager Neil Lennon is keen on adding a target man to his ranks and views Andersson as the perfect option.

The 28-year-old Swede is contracted with Union Berlin until the summer of 2022. However, the club are open to a sale and would be happy to do business for a transfer fee “in the mid-single-digit range”. (h/t Scottish Sun)

Having completed a ninth-successive Scottish Premiership triumph, Celtic are chasing an unprecedented 10th league title win in a row. Boosting the strikeforce, to that end, would bode well given the lack of quality beyond Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths.
