Celtic fans will have certainly been impressed with what they have seen from Oh Hyeon-gyu in recent weeks. The South Korean striker did make a slow start to the season but has looked a much improved player lately. He got a rare start against Hibernian and justified Brendan Rodgers' selection by scoring a brace.

It looks like Kyogo might have some genuine competition for the starting spot now. He has not exactly flourished in Brendan Rodgers' system, as he is seeing much less of the ball and having a tougher time to have an impact on games as a result.

Celtic do have a few worries regarding the striker position at the moment though. The biggest might be the upcoming AFC Asian Cup, starting in January.

It is very possible that both Kyogo and Oh could be selected by their respective national teams. If that turned out to be the case, it would leave Celtic without a proper striker. So, it goes without saying that they need to make an addition up and it looks like they are back in the race to sign a €10 million-rated Danish youngster.

A report from Tipsbladet regarding the situation of Mathias Kvistgaarden goes on to read:

"I know from good sources in Scotland that Celtic are back on the pitch."

Kvistgaarden currently plays for Brondby. Rumours suggested that Celtic had tried to sign him in the summer as well but failed to bring him to Parkhead.

There have been suggestions that Celtic were willing to make a transfer offer of around €4 million to sign Kvistgaarden in the summer. On the other hand, it looks like Brondby will look for a transfer fee closer to €10 million in order to part ways with the striker.

It goes without saying that there is a big gap between the two figures. It remains to be seen if the Hoops end up making a move in January.
