Celtic have been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid striker, Iván Saponjic, by a publication in Spain.

Neil Lennon has admitted he’d like to get another striker through the door although it isn’t the priority. Back in August after signing Albian Ajeti, the Celtic manager told Alison Conroy he was still in the market for another front man.

According to, Celtic have shown an interest in the 23-year-old but the player himself is looking to make the breakthrough in Spain at the moment.

Ivan moved from Benfica B to Atletico in 2019 but hasn’t made any significant progress. He has had four minutes of La Liga action in for the club so far.

It appears as if Ateltico would be open to letting the Serbian move on.

Our View

This one has come from nowhere and AS seem to be the only one running with the story. We don’t know anything about this guy and first team football has eluded Ivan for the most part during his career so far. It would be a punt at best if Celtic were in for him.
