Celtic boss Neil Lennon holds an interest in Ajax striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, as he steps up his recruitment efforts in Holland.
Lennon raided the Eredivisie to sign defender Virgil van Dijk and winger Derk Boerrigter this summer, and has been impressed by the quality of his acquisitions.
Lennon was in the stands at the weekend to watch Ajax play PSV Eindhoven, a clash they lost 4-0.
And according to Voetbal International, the object of the Celtic manager's affections was Ajax hitman Sigthorsson.
Lennon has had the 23-year-old watched extensively over the last 12 months and clearly felt the time was right for a personal visit to check on the striker.
Ajax signed the Iceland international in 2011, swooping to snap him up from AZ Alkmaar.
Sigthorsson has seen his time at the Amsterdam ArenA disrupted by injuries, but he has started the new campaign brightly, finding the back of the net four times in eight competitive games so far.
The striker's contract with Ajax runs until 2015.
