Celtic have been linked with Philadelphia Union attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson as the 19 year old has excelled in the American league.

An ESPN commentator has even went as far to compare Aaronson to the talented Havertz but an American version.

The lad being compared to Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz seems a bit much but who knows Aaronson could be a star in a few years and it could be Celtic that lands him this season.

Celtic have apparently joined Bundesliga sides SC Freiburg, Hoffenheim, 
Borussia Monchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt as well as ‘an unnamed Belgian club’ in the chase for Aaronson.

Its hard to see where the 19 year old would fit in at Celtic as his position already has too much competition, it would be silly paying money for a player that might not get a game this season when there are other areas that Lennon desperately needs to strengthen.
