Former Celtic striker John Guidetti considering Celta Vigo offer

The Swedish striker has been linked to a host of English clubs, but is currently in Spain holding talks with Celta Vigo.

There's certainly no shortage of clubs being linked with John Guidetti, after the striker rounded off his trophy winning spell at Celtic, by lifting the European Under-21 Championship title with Sweden.

The 23-year-old one of the over-age players selected by his country, as they enjoyed a hugely impressive tournament, going all the way to the final and then beating Portugal on penalties.

Pondering his next move, spending the 2015-16 season and beyond in La Liga is now looking a distinct possibility for Guidetti. Local media outlet El Faro de Vigo have informed that following his release by Manchester City, the player is now in Spain holding advanced negotiations with Celta Vigo.

Having already signed Iago Aspas back from Liverpool, further attacking options are wanted by Celta, who have Guidetti top of their shopping list. After arriving in the Galician port city on Tuesday, he has been inspecting the stadium and training facilities on offer at the club.

Negotiations regarding a contract offer are also believed to be at an advanced stage, with Celta keen to lock the player down on a long-term contract, placing lucrative financial package on the table, given his free-agent status.

Guidetti only ever made one senior appearance with Manchester City, following his move from IF Brommapojkarna, which came in the League Cup against West Bromwich Albion in September 2010.

Since then, the powerful centre-forward spent loan spells with Burnley, Feyenoord and Stoke City, before heading to Celtic Park last summer.

Making a total of 35 appearances in all competitions during the 2014-15 campaign, Guidetti found the back of the net on 15 occasions with The Bhoys.

Despite a decent scoring record and strong performances in Scotland, no contract renewal offer was forthcoming from Manchester City, who preferred to let him leave for free.

In Italy, there have been reports from Gazzetta dello Sport, which have named Udinese as potential suitor. Subsequent speculation then lead to suggestions the Pozzo family might then send the striker to Watford.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail recently linked Guidetti with a host of Premier League clubs, including West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Newcastle United

All certainly appealing options for the player, but for now, it looks as though he could be turning his back on the British isles completely, with the opportunity of a fresh start and a new challenge in Spain. At the very least, that's the option Celta Vigo will be hoping he chooses.
