Celtic among clubs chasing Swedish ace Ghoddos

HITC Sport understands a host of Championship and Scottish Premiership sides are tracking Swedish hot-shot Saman Ghoddos.

Swedish starlet Saman Ghoddos is attracting interest from a number of teams in England and Scotland after catching the eye for Syrianska FC, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Attacking midfielder Ghoddos has been earning rave reviews for Syrianska in the Swedish Superettan this season with seven goals and four assists in 17 games.

Ghoddos' performances have not gone unnoticed among clubs across Europe and several sides in England and Scotland have been alerted to the 21-year-old's potential.

Scouts from a number of Championship sides are expected to travel to Sweden to watch Ghoddos in action against Brommapojkarna this weekend.

Scottish duo Celtic and Hearts are also expected to have representatives this game to check on Ghoddos as they continue to monitor his progress.

Syrianska are thought to have rejected offers for Ghoddos from several of their Scandinavian rivals, but they are unlikely to stand in his way if a club from one of Europe's top leagues firms up their interest in the attacker.
