However, the Hoops will face competition from a host of clubs from England and Germany, with the likes of Newcastle United, Leeds United and Schalke all keen on the 28-year-old. (h/t Scottish Sun)
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)
