Erik Sviatchenko was, during his youth playing years, captain of the FC Midtjylland squad.
During his first year as a U/19 player, he and his team finished first in the Danish U/19 league, which was followed up the next season with another first place. In 2009 he was awarded the “Academy Player Of The Year” award, which is given to players who have excelled themselves during their period at the academy.
Here we take a look at the potential targets:
The St Pauli striker has been linked with a move to Glasgow and recent reports say he is stalling on negotiations for a new contract at the Bundesliga 2 club.
Thy said: “There is no reason to sign a new contract just now. I will wait and consider my options before making any decision.”
The German was watched by Celtic scouts and impressed after scoring four goals against Fortuna Dusseldorf, but clubs in his homeland as well in England are interested so it may not be an easy task prying him over.
Currently at Aston Villa, the 26-year-old may be known to Hoops fans for his spell at Lazio and appearances for the Czech Republic national side.
He joined Premier League outfit Villa in 2013 but has struggled to make an impact – mainly due to extremely unfortunate injuries including missing the entire 2014-2015 season.
It is unclear what fee would be involved if Celtic were to make their move for Kozak but their case may be helped if Villa don’t see a way back for the Czech hitman in their first team squad.
Emil Berggreen is reported to be on manager Deila’s wishlist in the January window.
A £2.25million bid was turned down by his club Eintracht Braunschweig on the last day of the summer window with Hamburg and Werder Bremen sniffing around the Danish talisman.
At 22, he is just at the beginning of his career and would represent a long-term investment for Celtic should they choose to re-enter the race to sign the Denmark U21 cap.
He has scored four goals in 12 appearances for Braunschweig in the second division in Germany, as well as a goal in the German Cup.
