We know Celtic will be keen to strengthen their squad this summer. And a striker is very likely to be on their transfer wish list. That will perhaps be the case even if the club sign Adam Idah permanently at the conclusion of his loan spell from Norwich City, amid doubts around the future of Oh Hyeon-gyu, who has barely featured recently.

It seems as if Idah’s arrival on loan from Norwich City has led to Oh slipping out of the first-team picture completely. He is not even making matchday squads now.

On the other hand, after Idah’s success since arriving in the winter, many fans will be keen on a permanent deal for the Irishman. It remains to be seen if that materialises or not.

That possible deal shouldn’t stop Brendan Rodgers from looking for more options up front. Especially now when a rumoured Celtic transfer target could well be available and ready to make a move.

Possible Mathias Kvistgaarden transfer hint amid Celtic links

Celtic have been linked for some time with Brondby IF's Mathias Kvistgaarden. They were believed to have been unsuccessful with a £4 million transfer bid last summer. There were heavy rumours regarding a move to Parkhead in January as well but ultimately, he remained where he was.

Kvistgaarden's future has been thrown into doubt following comments made by Jesper Sorensen. As reported by the Daily Record, when asked if he would ever play another game in a Brondby shirt, the manager told Tipsbladet with "a smile on his face":

"That's a good question.

"I'd rather not speculate on it. I hope not, but we'll have to see. I don't really have any idea what time will bring."

Kvistgaarden hasn’t had the most prolific goal-scoring season. He had seven goals and the same number of assists in his first 20 Superliga matches. The Danish league is now in the Championship round, a broad equivalent to the SPFL split. The striker added another goal in that win over FC Copenhagen but an injury could keep him out for the rest of the campaign.

Despite that, Celtic's recent attempts to strike a deal suggest they might remain keen to sign him in the summer. Kvistgaarden would add more competition upfront for sure. Perhaps if he is not to be seen in a Brondby IF shirt again, his next club outing could be in the green and white hoops.
