Celtic have been vocal about their desire to bring in a new striker this January.

Odsonne Edouard has been carrying the load up-front for the Hoops this season with Leigh Griffiths and Vakoun Bayo both nursing injuries throughout.

Lewis Morgan and even Ryan Christie have both played their part as makeshift front men at stages so far but a new attacker is definitely high on the list of priorities for Neil Lennon and head of football operations Nicky Hammond.

Who is Andraz Sporar, and can he be the man to bolster Celtic's attack?

One man whose name has cropped up in recent times is Le Havre's Tino Kadewere, 24.

The versatile striker, from Zimbabwe, has reportedly been monitored by Celtic representatives.

It's no surprise that the Scottish champions are looking at the frontman.

He's scored 17 goals and provided four assists in just 19 appearances and continues to attract admiration and interest from English Premier League sides Southampton and Bournemouth among others.

The main - and rather significant - stumbling block for the Hoops would be the price tag placed on Kadewere's head.

Albeit he's only playing in Ligue 2 as opposed to French football's top tier but the figure being bandied about is around £10million.

Too huge an outlay for a backup striker, one would presume - considering Edouard would definitely remain first-choice at Parkhead.

Celtic boss Lennon has also spoken recently of Andraz Sporar of Slovan Bratislava and how he is "one of a number of options we are talking to at the minute".

Could Kadewere be another? Financially it looks unlikely, but if Edouard remains on the shortlist of a number of high-profile clubs for this summer, Lennon could be willing to fork out for a strong replacement.

Kadewere scored six goals and provided six assists last season, too, after a 16 goal season the year prior.

Having began his career at Djurgarden in Sweden as an 18-year-old, the forward earned his move to France.

He has also played some games in midfield and boasts 42 career strikes.
