Larsson’s father, Henrik, starred for Celtic between 1997 and 2004.
Some Celtic supporters are urging the Bhoys to hijack Jordan Larsson’s transfer to Spartak Moscow.
Larsson – son of the legendary ex-Celtic striker, Henrik – is due for a medical ahead of a £3.7 million move to the Russian side from IFK Norrkoping, according to the Scottish Sun.
The 22-year-old currently leads the Swedish top-flight’s scoring charts, with 11 goals from his 18 appearances so far.
But with only Odsonne Edouard, Leigh Griffiths and the as-yet-untested Vakoun Issouf Bayo to call upon, Celtic could perhaps make use of a player like Larsson.
And the following Bhoys fans appear to agree.
If he is half as good as his dad, then €4m is a snip. Saying that I’d be up for taking Henrik’s goldfish on a 4 year deal!— Calum Fox (@CalumFox17) July 30, 2019

Is he not the type of player we should be snapping up?
Emotional connection with the fans straight away too
Looks like we’ve now missed the cut off point to bring Larsson’s laddie to Celtic, if we were ever going to. Going to Spartak for £3.5m and well out of our price range in a year’s time if he does well. https://t.co/FGxnh50okv— Marc McArdle (@marcmcardle1) July 30, 2019
Larsson impressed at first club Helsingborg, but struggled during a spell in the Netherlands with NEC Nijmegen.
Nevertheless, a £3.7m transfer fee would suggest that Spartak have done their research on the Sweden Under-21 international and have confidence in his ability.
Larsson was born in Rotterdam just a month before his father’s move from Feyenoord to Celtic.
Larsson Snr scored 242 goals in 313 games for the Bhoys before joining Barcelona.
