Celtic keeping tabs on Aalesund striker Leke James

30 September 2015, 18:06

Lagos - News24 can confirm that Scottish Premier League champions Celtic are monitoring the transfer situation of Aalesund's Nigerian forward Leke James.

At least one representative of the Glasgow club was in the stands at the start of this week to run the rule over the highly-rated forward, as AaFK played out a 1-1 draw with Tromso at the Alfheim Stadion.

While Celtic have not made any official contact with Aalesund with regards to the signing the attacker, this website understands that he is aware that the United Kingdom-based club are keeping tabs on him.

In the next three months, Leke James, who has been at the Color Line Stadium for more than three and a half years, will enter the final 12 months of his contract and the best time for Aalesund to recoup a great part of their previous investment on the player will be the January transfer window.

Should Celtic decide to bring out their cheque book to acquire him, they face a stumbling block, with Aalesund slapping a three million euros price tag on the frontman as at this summer.

The 22-year-old, who has notched up 34 goals in 85 league games, was linked with a switch to Guangzhou R&F in June.
