Celtic 'close to signing' Bayern Munich ace ahead of EPL club

Celtic are close to sealing a move for Bayern Munich youngster Christopher Scott, according to a report.

The versatile 19-year-old attacker, who was born in Germany but is of Ghanian descent, was previously linked with a move to Parkhead in January.

Scott has been a regular for Germany’s youth teams, playing for various age groups. He came through the Bayer Leverkusen academy before joining Bayern in January 2020.

Scott is being tracked by clubs across Europe, but according to ghanasoccernet, it is Celtic who lead the chase for the player valued at £250,000 by the Bundesliga side.

Brentford have also been credited with an interest along with Austrian club SK Austria Klagenfurt.

Scott missed some of last season with a knee injury but contributed six goals and six assists in 15 games for Bayern II in the German fourth division.
