Celtic ready €6m bid for Sweden striker Sebastian Andersson

Scottish champions Celtic are set to make an offer of €6m for Union Berlin forward Sebastian AnderssonKicker reports.

Union have been preparing for Andersson’s departure for a while as interest has grown.

The Sweden international scored 12 goals and clocked up three assists in his first Bundesliga season.

Celtic will be the first team to make a move with a bid said to be imminent.

In addition to Celtic, French side Lille could also firm up their interest with a concrete bid.

Thanks to an opt-out clause included in his new contract this February, 29-year-old Andersson can leave for a ‘mid single-digit million’ transfer fee.

The exact amount depends on his destination – English clubs for example would have to pay 30 per cent more than German sides.

According to Kicker, the clause expires in August, meaning a decision on Andersson’s future will come in the next fortnight.

Andersson’s dream is a move to the Premier League, where Leeds, West Brom and Newcastle have shown interest.

In Germany, Schalke have also been monitoring the player’s situation.

Andersson joined FC Union in 2018 on a free transfer from Kaiserslautern following their relegation.
