Scottish champions Celtic are eager to secure the signature of non-league striker Reise Allasani this month after the forward has managed to find the back of the net 17 times in 16 appearances this season, according to a report on the Football Insider.

Allasani, who currently plays for Bostik League Premier Division side Dulwich Hamlet, has been targeted by several clubs after his wonderful performances so far this season.

The 22-year-old forward is likely to want to move to a bigger club and it is understood that Dulwich will not stand in the way of their player leaving.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has been keeping a close eye on the development of the former Crystal Palace youth player and believes that he has huge potential.

Rodgers is keen to sign the forward and is in awe of his finishing capability. The forward was on the verge of signing for Championship club Sheffield Wednesday in 2016 but picked up a serious knee injury which resulted in the move breaking down.

Allasani has since worked himself back to full fitness and has now got his form back, resulting in Celtic battling with several other major clubs, such as Norwich City and Reading for his signature.
