BREAKING NEWS-Sevilla, Sparta Moscow rival Celtics for Sam Johnson 

By Boy Dolo


Celtics are keen on Liberia striker Sam Johnson but face competition from two European clubs, according to the Scottish Sun.

Europa League winners Sevilla and Russian giants Spartak Moscow are also said to be keen on Johnson, who plays for Swedish outfit Djurgardens, according to data for Soccer Channel. He's an interesting player, says sports director Bosse Andersson.

New Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is thought to be in the market for a new centre forward, with Colin Kazim-Richards, Carlton Cole, Anthony Stokes and Stefan Scepovic all facing uncertain Parkhead futures.

The former Nimba FC striker, 23, is considerably younger than both players, could fit the bill instead.

The powerful front man has scored seven goals in 12 Allsvenskan appearances this season - three short of his 2015 tally - having previously registered 17 strikes in 54 outings for then third tier IK Frej.

With Spartak only qualifying for next season's Europa League, Sevilla, who are renowned for developing unheralded talents such as Johnson, are likely to pose the biggest threat to Celtic's hopes.

During his debut season in Djurgarden last year did Sam Johnson ten goals in the league and it attracted glances from other clubs. Last winter there was interest from the Russian side of the former IK Frej striker but then there was no deal.

Sam Johnson himself has previously opened for a move from Djurgarden if the right bid emerges. His contract with blåränderna spans the 2018th
