Report claims that Celtic have had £4m striker bid rejected

Celtic are reported to have had a bid of £4m rejected for Mathias Kvistgaareden.

The Brondby striker has been the subject of increased speculation recently with BT of Denmark reporting that a second bid of £4m has been rejected.

Often these sort of stories are local outlets picking up on a story that first surfaced in Scotland but this time there is detail about two bids being made for a 21-year-old striker.

Although Celtic are believed to be looking to strengthen all area of the team a younger striker in the project age range wouldn’t appear to be a priority to most concerned supporters.

Finding a third central defender to go in alongside Gustaf Lagerbielke and Liam Scales looks like the priority position with Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh and Maik Nawrocki not expected to be available again until the end of October.

Danish news outlet BT reports:

Mathias Kvistgaarden is by far Brondby’s best selling point, and the club has already rejected two bids for the player.

BT can reveal that.

And it wasn’t from just any destinations. The Scottish champion club Celtic in particular resonates.

According to BT’s information, last week the big club offered DKK 35 million for the Brondby star, but it was rejected by the blue and yellow from Vestegnen.

After this, Brendan Rodgers’ club made it clear that they were ready to pay even more, but Brondby also refused, as they need Kvistgaarden’s qualities in the runs that cut up the opposition defences.

At the same time, BT can also reveal that the MLS club Houston Dynamo, which already has Erik Sviatchenko in the fold, also offered the 21-year-old sharpshooter, but the Americans also got the cold shoulder.

It happened around the same time that the big breakthrough in Brondby came for Mathias Kvistgaarden, which resulted in an extension of the contract until the summer of 2027.

For the same reason, Brondby is also in no hurry to sell Mathias Kvistgaarden, who plays a big role in the team and, especially from the last championship play-off, really put his name on the map.

Kyogo Furuhashi has been Celtic’s first choice striker over the last two seasons with his contract extended soon after Brendan Rodgers took over from Ange Postecoglou.

Rodgers has spoken about using Daizen Maeda in a more central role, his international position rather than as a left winger as he was used at club level.

With Oh Hyeon-gyu coming back from injury Celtic seem relatively well covered for strikers, at a price tag pushing towards £5m or above Kvistgaareden would be coming in to play as a twin striker- unless a very unpopular transfer is a possibility with Ange Postecoglou still looking to replace Harry Kane.
