Celtic are on the hunt for another right-back.
It was reported by The Scottish Sun back in June that the Hoops had ended their pursuit of the Danish international.
However, this latest report from journalist Stephen McGowan suggests he is still an option.
The Scottish Daily Mail (13/08 print edition, pages 79/80) say that Neil Lennon is on the hunt for two full-backs, a winger and a striker before the end of the summer transfer window.
Ankersen would be an option for the right hand side of defence and has plenty of experience to help the Hoops on their trophy hunt this season.
The 25-cap Dane has made 175 appearances in total for Copenhagen, helping them win three league titles and the Danish Cup twice, which is a good record in four years at the club.
That kind of trophy winning pedigree would make him an excellent fit in an already successful Hoops squad. He clearly has the mentality required for a title chase.
In Europe he could also be an asset, having made 61 appearances across the UEFA Europa League and Champions League.
Last season he registered eight assists too (Transfermarkt), perhaps demonstrating he has the kind of attacking ambition needed in Lennon's Celtic team.
It's the kind of playing profile Celtic should be looking at this summer to provide competition for Hatem Abd Elhamed, who looks a solid choice in his initial showings for the club.
