Molde striker Mohamed Elyounoussi responds when asked about joining Celtic this month

Mohamed Elyounoussi claims he knows that Celtic want to sign him.

Molde forward Mohamed Elyounoussi has told The Scottish Sun that he is aware of interest from Celtic this month - but says other teams want him too.

Elyounoussi, 21, joined Molde from Sarpsborg in 2014, and has been nothing short of a goal machine ever since, smashing 36 goals in 77 games.

The Moroccan-born Norwegian international even scored in both of Molde's victories over Celtic in the Europa League this season, and has been building a real reputation for himself in Norway.

Now, his exploits in Norway have been attracting interest, with The Scottish Sun claiming earlier today that Celtic are plotting a January move to sign him.

The report states that Bhoys manager Ronny Deila is looking to bring his compatriot Elyounoussi to Glasgow, with a potential £2m bid in the offing.

Whilst much of the focus is on new Celtic signing Erik Sviatchenko, Elyounoussi has now revealed to The Scottish Sun that the interest from Celtic is indeed true when asked about a possible switch to Glasgow.

The youngster, who can play out wide or up front, also stated that other clubs are interested, and he is simply focusing on his career with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Molde.

"It is true that there is interest, but it's there from elsewhere too," said Elyounoussi. "Time will tell. I am concentrating on my contract and I am working hard to get in shape," he added.

Would Elyounoussi be a good signing for Celtic?
