Mathias Kvistgaarden is reportedly ready to complete a transfer move to Celtic.

Celtic have been heavily linked with a transfer swoop for the 21-year-old Brondy striker.

And Tutto Mercato claims an agreement between the two clubs is "very close".

It's thought Celtic will have to pay a fee in the region of £4m to land Kvistgaarden as Brendan Rodgers looks to bolster his attacking options.

Earlier speculation had claimed a transfer bid had been knocked back by the Danish club.

However, it's now thought negotiations are nearing a positive conclusion with the player keen to make the switch to Parkhead.

Kvistgaarden is under contract at Brondby until 2027 and previously scored six goals and provided six assists in nine matches in the Danish championship.

Asked about Kvistgaarden's position at Brondby and the interest from Celtic, director of football Carsten Jensen told TV3 last week: "Basically, it has not been part of the plan.

"We are still in the process of transfers. It's both relation to ins and outs.

"We still need to adjust the number of players in the squad, even though we are getting to where we want to be. 

"It's definitely getting closer to what we want to have in our squad. Then we have our eyes and ears open in relation to a few more positions.”

On whether he is hopeful of further signings before the end of the window, Rodgers said: “Hopefully. I think it’s clear… I have said before we have improved the squad with some of the players we have brought in, but we have lost starters. So we need to improve the team.

“And it’s always a challenge coming off the back of a season where you have won the treble.

“You have got to go again the following season where there is a greater expectation on you and more pressure."
