Jordan Larsson, the son of former Celtic legend Henrik, seems to making some waves in Sweden.

The 22-year-old currently sits joint top of the scoring charts in the Allsvenskan after a terrific start to the campaign. In total, the forward has netted nine goals in 14 appearances for European hopefuls Norrkoping.

His tally included strikes against his former club Helsingborgs as well as Hammarby and Hacken.

Larsson is in the midst of his second season for Norrkpping after spending two years with Dutch side NEC Nijmegen.

Should Celtic make their move for Jordan Larsson?

Of course, any move for Larsson would be an appealing one with Celtic supporters – purely because of his father.

However, even taking the emotion out of it, a move may just make sense.

The forward clearly has something about him if he’s notched nine goals in 14 at the age of 22. The Swedish top-flight is probably of a similar standard to Scotland too, so it’s not as if he’s scoring goals in a pub league.

The striker clearly has some potential and would see a move to Celtic as a dream one. The club may have their eye on him but will probably want to wait a little to see if he can continue his form over a longer period.

If Larsson can do that then a remarkable future move to the club may be on. And wouldn’t that just be amazing?
