Alan Brazil has suggested on his Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, broadcast January 9, that Celtic should be interested in Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen.

The Dutch midfielder, 24, is linked with a move away from the Toffees and BBC Sport reported this week that he could be among those set to leave Goodison Park.

The former Ajax captain has struggled to adapt to Premier League life following his £23.6 million move in the summer.

And Celtic fan Brazil said on his Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT that the Hoops should consider a move for the Netherlands international.

He said: "Everton it looks like are trying to get rid of Klaassen. I wonder if Celtic should go for Klaassen. They know all about him from the Champions League when Ajax beat Celtic."

The Eredivisie giants beat Ronny Deila's Bhoys 2-1 in Glasgow in the Europa League over two years ago in a game where Klaassen played the full 90 minutes.

But does Brendan Rodgers need another midfielder? It's doubtful. The Northern Irishman already has Stuart Armstrong, Scott Brown, Tom Rogic, Olivier Ntcham and Nir Bitton.

Klaassen would probably be a decent signing, but the Merseyside outfit will try to recoup as much money as possible from his sale and even if they manage recoup half of their outlay, that's still around £12 million and well out of Celtic's range.
