Celtic face competition in the race to land the highly rated Adrian Akande, as Hoffenheim step up their interest in him, and he certainly seems an exciting talent. 

According to HITC, Celtic are set to rival the likes of Rangers, West Ham and Tottenham for the 15-year-old’s signature, but Hoffenheim could be in the driving seat.

Manchester United are also said to be interested in Akande, with a report last month linking them with a move.

The Bundesliga side have reportedly invited the winger to train with them and take a tour of the facilities in an attempt to win the race for his signature, with the report suggesting he will make a decision on his future in the next three months.

READ CELTIC VERDICT

Akande appears to be a hugely exciting talent, with interest in the 15-year-old said to be incredibly high.

Do you think Celtic will sign Akande?

Yes

No

The teenager scored an impressive 30 goals and created 22 assists for Chelsea’s youth teams last season before leaving the West London side upon his contract expiry. 

Akande has previously been likened to former Chelsea star Eden Hazard and current Barcelona ace Ousmane Dembele, and it appears as though he would be a fine addition to Celtic’s wealth of promising talent.
