Celtic need to sign a striker in January. That is not a secret to anyone who has been paying attention. Kyogo's form is nowhere near what it was last season. Yes, he has delivered in big matches, scoring in both Glasgow Derbies so far and against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. But his overall numbers are down drastically when compared to his time playing under the management of Ange Postecoglou.

On the other hand, the club have never really replaced Giorgos Giakoumakis, a reliable goalscorer at cover. The Hoops signed Oh Hyeon-gyu from Suwon Samsung Bluewings last January. A year on, there has been improvement but not enough to consider him a gamechanger.

Most Celtic fans would prefer the club to sign an experienced, established and proven striker. Someone who would guarantee goals.

It looks like the club are sticking with their policy of signing 'project' players though. They are believed to be on the verge of signing Nicolas Kuhn. And as reported by Football Insider, Celtic have opened talks with Brondby over signing Mathias Kvistgaarden. The Hoops are still working on a deal to sign the 21-year-old Danish striker.

Celtic open talks for €10 million-rated striker

Kvistgaarden is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in Danish football right now. Some rumours have even suggested that it would take a transfer fee around €10 million to convince Brondby to part ways with him.

Of course, it is hard to imagine the Scottish champions making an offer of that magnitude. As reported by BT in the summer, Celtic did have a transfer bid around £4 million rejected for Kvistgaarden.

So, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Kvistgaarden. Celtic have been linked with several other strikers recently as well, like Bojan Miovski, Lawrence Shankland, Sydney van Hooijdonk and more.
