Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he wants to sign a central defender in the summer transfer window.
Ajer signed a four-year contract with Celtic in February, as announced on the club’s official website at the time.
Rodgers has spoken highly of the 18-year-old midfielder, and he has also made it clear that he is looking to sign a centre-back in the summer transfer window.
The 18-year-old Norway Under-21 international midfielder is a very talented player, and he will be looking to establish himself in the Celtic as the 2016-17 season progresses.
“We are looking at the centre-half position,” Rodgers told The Glasgow Evening Times. “We have some players here I am looking at and I feel we can help to develop and to progress.
“Kristoffer [Ajer] has come in from Norway and looks an outstanding prospect. I don’t want to bring in a whole raft of players. I tend to look at quality and looking to introduce them.”
Celtic will be involved in Champions League qualifiers soon, and the Glasgow giants do need to sign a centre-back.
Efe Ambrose could go to the Olympics, Jozo Simunovic and Dedryck Boyata are injured, and Charlie Mulgrew has yet to sign a new deal with the Hoops. The Bhoys will be favourites to win the Scottish Premiership title next season.
