Earlier today we covered reports from Germany that Leeds United were interested in signing Werder Bremen forward Aron Johannsson in the last window, and that the player could still be option for the Championship side in the next window.

The 26 year old has also previously been linked with a move to the UK after reports during Neil Lennon’s reign the Scottish Premiership side were keen to sign him.

The Daily Record reported at the time Celtic were looking to sign the attacker after the player impressed Lennon whilst playing for Dutch side AZ. Celtic were also linked with a move for Icelandic forward Alfred Finnbogason, but his £5m price tag was deemed too high by Celtic.

Subsequently Lennon instead targeted Johannsson, and even though his value was £2.4m a move to Celtic Park didn’t materialise.

Despite not signing for, Celtic Johannsson eventually got his big move, when he signed for Werder Bremen in 2015, but the Bundesliga side are now looking to offload the American.

This could give Leeds United the chance to sign the Werder Bremen player in the new year after showing an interest in the summer.

Leeds United instead brought in Pierre-Michel Lasogga on loan from Hamburg, but there have been recent suggestions he could return to Germany next summer if continues to impress in England.
