Some Celtic fans on social media are far from happy after hearing Jordan Larsson is being targeted by both West Ham and Borussia Dortmund.
The striker is the son of Bhoys legend Henrik Larsson, and as you can imagine, there was a sense of regret that the Glasgow outfit haven’t taken a punt on their former striker’s son.
It’s not as if Larsson would have been impossible to sign either, he admitted it would be a dream to play for Celtic not all that long ago, but now it seems as though he’s destined for a move to a big club.
Dortmund have a knack of signing fantastic forwards, while West Ham are desperate for a new number nine after the departure of Sebastien Haller.
Sadly, with these two clubs interested, we have to imagine that Larsson is now out of Celtic’s price-range and a deal won’t be struck.
It would have been great to see a second-generation Larsson turn out for Celtic, but sadly, it seems as though it’s never going to happen.
Here’s what Celtic supporters have been saying on social media…
@CelticFC hurry up

Klimala and Afolabi fees combined would have bought him in the summer of 2019 from IFK… 🤷🏻♂
We weren’t to know though… eh? https://t.co/DwuEW5zvVc

We could have taken a gamble on him a few years and it wouldn’t have cost that much https://t.co/5bKFJbfZFu

Looks like that’s him out of our price bracket now then . Our usual recent, on the cheap diabolical recruitment strikes again . https://t.co/Ujh7sdjL4b

I said about 3 yrs ago we should take a punt on him, give him a 4 Yr deal & gave him the option to stay in Sweden on loan for the first 12-18 months to develop. The boy looks like he’s making a name for himself. He could have been ready to sign a new deal & get the No7 this yr https://t.co/r5eJBIHf3Q

Out of our price range now then probably. Having a very good season.
We should have been in about him from a young age like most clubs do with their legends boys. Most clubs do it because it’s low risk with the off chance 1 in 10 of them becomes a star. https://t.co/jgrZSEJ05p
