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.

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.
