Kristoffer Ajer is in dialogue with Celtic over a possible move as the transfer deadline approaches.
The 17-year-old, who has captained his current club IK Start, spent a week on trial at Celtic and was scouted by Paris Saint-Germain on at least four occasions this season.
Ajer made the move from Lillestrom SK in 2014 and has gone on to impress a host of European clubs who are keeping tabs on him including Roma, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Serie A side Roma also submitted a €2 million bid for the 6’5 midfielder last season after a successful trial, but Start rejected the bid.
His current contract runs out at the end of this year, and Celtic have added him to their list of players to watch, however Deila is thought to want him added to the squad, with a possible loan deal back to Norway to allow him to finish school.
As quoted by Norwegian outlet FVN, Ajer said:
There are a few days left in the transfer window and anything can happen.
It went well in Celtic, and I have certainly a good dialogue with the club, so we’ll see when or if there will be a transition there.
With talk of the youngster being in the same bracket as Real Madrid player Martin Odegaard, Celtic fans will hope they don’t miss out on him.
