    Celtic are interested in Bristol City winger Niclas Eliasson, according to a report.

    Italian website Cittaceleste is suggesting that the Hoops have joined Villarreal and Lazio in chasing the star, although the Rome club are more likely to be looking for a deal at the end of the season.

    The 24-year-old, who holds Brazilian citizenship, moved to Bristol in August 2017 for a fee of around £1.8m and while his deal comes to to an end in the summer, the Robins have the option of an added year extension.

    Current boss Lee Johnson is desperate to get the star to sign a new deal.

    He said: "The way I would see it is he has 18 months on his contract but we would absolutely love it for him to sign a new contract. We value him hugely.


    [​IMG]
    "We're discussing, he's changed agents, but we've been sitting down and talking about it since the start of the summer but then agents change, other priorities come in between that. But the simple stance is we'd love him to stay longer.


    The Swedish under-21 attacker is out of contract at the end of the year and has been in brilliant form with three goals and 10 assists in 24 league games.

    He can play on either side but is known for cutting on to his left foot from positions on the right.

    His assist ratio is quite impressive this season.

    - As expected, at least so far everything is silent for the Lazio market . Several names are circulating, especially for the attack, but the feeling is that Tare has no intention of doing anything. The last of the various market rumors that include the Biancocelesti refers to Niclas Eliasson . It is a midfielder capable of playing both left and right. This year with Bristol City, the team that plays in the English Championship, the equivalent of the Italian Serie B, the 24 year old Swedish is doing well. 3 goals and 10 assists in 24 games. A performance that sparked the interest not only of Lazio, but also of other clubs such as Celtic and Villarreal. However, given the trend of the biancoceleste market in this window, this will probably be a track that can be traveled in the summer.

    Believe he has the most assists in the championship mate. Quite impressive must be doing something right down the flank

    Good at assists? We aren't full of players with a deadly cross, so...hopefully we try for him?

    Two points off the playoffs with an option to extend his contract for a further year, this wouldn't be cheap.

    Very very exciting player, fast, very tricky, and has good end product, doesnt fancy it out of possession mind. Saying that with 18 months left on contract he wont be leaving for anything less than 5M he is worth that to them just to keep him for that time.

    Can only see him being out of our budget. If they have any sort of sniff of playoffs they surely can't allow him to leave.

    Bristol City have been very exciting to watch this season. Would be up for this even though I can’t remember watching him. I remember Watkins and Behrama, who are both class. I do think another winger would put us in the driving seat for the title. Forrest been struggling for form, Johnstone and Elyounoussi with injuries, Shved is obviously *... winger is absolutely a priority this window.

    Bristol City have slapped a not-for-sale sign on Celtic target Niclas Eliasson.

    The Swede is on the champions’ radar as they hunt a winger ahead of the transfer deadline on Friday

    Record Sport understands Eliasson’s been scouted by Hoops staff but the Robins are set to lock down their key asset at least for the rest of the season.

    The 24-year-old has scored three goals this term and has the best assist figures in the English Championship with 10.

    Bristol are two points from the promotion play-off places and Eliasson’s agent Hasan Cetinkaya has stated they won’t entertain offers for his client in this window as they chase their Premier League dream.

    Asked if Eliasson could move this month, Cetinkaya said: “No, it’s going to be difficult. Bristol want to keep him for their aims to move up. Then he has an option in his contract the club will use.”

    Lazio and Villarreal have also been linked with the Ashton Gate ace and Cetinkaya added: “Interest comes from big clubs and major leagues and clubs are looking to buy him now but Bristol has said no. That’s all I can say right now. But in the summer window, something big could happen to Niclas.”

    Always a no go from this market down here..

    If it's no an out of contract/cross border, loan or stroke of luck....then it isn't worth even asking the question here..

    Bristol have an option to extend just like we had with Sinclair. They can trigger this whenever they want.
