Forget McGinn: Celtic must sign midfield goal machine acing top-flight, reportedly worth £6m


Celtic have now won the Scottish Premiership and are just one win away from securing their second treble in a row against Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final next month.

However that doesn’t mean that Brendan Rodgers can afford to take his eye off the ball as there will no doubt be a reaction from Rangers – albeit futile – so Celtic have to go out and continue improving their squad.

One player that the Hoops are constantly linked with is Hibernian’s John McGinn – but Rodgers must forget about signing up the Scotland international and instead set his sights on FC Nordsjaelland midfielder Mathias Jensen.

Jensen, 22, has been acing it in the Danish top-flight this season and has helped his side stay in the hunt to win the league title.

The midfield goal machine has wore the captain’s armband despite his young age and would be a perfect fit in this Celtic side.

He has scored 11 goals and supplied 10 assists in 32 appearances across all competitions for Nordsjaelland, and has attracted attention from the Premier League.

Danish news outlet BT has reported that Tottenham and Southampton are keen on the Denmark Under-21 ace, who is said to be worth £6million going into the summer window.

Bayer Leverkusen and Ajax were also said to be keen.

Many Celtic fans may feel that the midfield is strong enough, but Scott Brown is not going to play at this level forever and Tom Rogic and Stuart Armstrong have been linked with exits.

Jensen would be an amazing addition in the summer and Rodgers must absolutely make sure that a deal happens.
