Jordan Larsson speaks about next club

Jordan Larsson has spoken to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet about his next club after officially becoming a free agent after his contract was ripped up by Spartak Moscow.

Celtic are a chance of picking the Swedish international for free, he would of course be a massive signing for Celtic on 3 levels:

Firstly he is a fine player in his own right, he would be able to play in our forward line or in the midfield and could be the attacking replacement for Rogic.

Who sings it better, Celtic vs Live...
Who sings it better, Celtic vs Liverpool YNWA gets nasty on Twitter

Second he would otherwise be unaffordable in the transfer market and could be picked up for free, he would also command a fee if he excelled and was wanted abroad.

Thirdly he would be a marketing bonanza, think of how many Larsson shirts the club would sell, Adidas would need to call Castore to find out who their Turkish trader was on Alibaba.

The Prince said when asked of his next destination as reported in the Daily Record:

 Unfortunately, I can not answer that.

“I want a lot of things, but it’s not always just up to me. My agent has to answer those questions. I know everyone wants to know, but there is not much to say right now.”

AIK sporting director confirmed that the club have held talks with the player as they look to continue his spell in Sweden, with his former side appearing to be the early frontrunners for a deal. He told Expressen : “He does not see AIK as a bad alternative. He sees the club as a good option.”

However, the Swedish side are not the only pursuing a deal with Espanyol also making an approach to the player, according to reports in Spain. La Grada claim that sporting director Domingo Catoira has been a long-term admirer of the frontman, and previously held talks with the striker before his move to Sweden.

Catoira has reportedly approached Larsson’s representatives again this summer as he looks to land a bargain deal. The report also notes that Borussia Dortmund have previously shown an interest in the Celtic icon’s son.
