Celtic are reportedly not looking at Swedish striker Jordan Larsson as an option during this summer’s transfer window.

The 25-year-old was recently released by Russian side Spartak Moscow and is currently on the lookout for a new club.

Of course, the news of Larsson being available on a free transfer brought a lot of fanfare from the Celtic support, with his father Henrik being a club icon.

At first, it seemed like more of an unrealistic move being dreamed up by the Parkhead faith.

However, supporters began to gain a little more hope when it was reported by Sky Sports Anthony Joseph that Larsson’s representatives had been in contact with a host of clubs, including Celtic.

Despite contact from the player’s agent, there had been no confirmation as of yet as to whether Ange Postecoglou’s side were even interested in the player.

However, according to a report from Football Scotland this evening, the Bhoys are ‘NOT looking’ at Larsson as a potential option to add to the squad this window.

It has been suggested during the early stages of the summer that Postecoglou was on the hunt for another option for his frontline.

This would have also made a move for Larsson more viable, particularly when you consider he is currently out of contract.

However, the latest reports all but confirm that there is no interest in bringing the former AIK loanee to the club.

Larsson will still have plenty of options across Europe, with recently promoted English Premiership side Nottingham Forest being the most talked about.

It would have been brilliant to see the striker pull on the green and white Hoops. Not just because of who his dad is, but because he could have been a quality option to add to the Celtic squad.

For whatever reason, Larsson isn’t a player the club are going to pursue. But, if Postecoglou has earned one thing, it is the trust in his judgement of the Celtic support surrounding his dealings during the transfer window.
