Reported Celtic target Daizen Maeda certainly wouldn’t fail to bring an injection of pace up-front if he arrives in January.
The Japanese international is believed to be a target for Ange Postecoglou, who worked with him at Yokohama F Marinos.
Though the summer saw a significant rebuild, the manager wants to add some more new faces as he looks to mount a Premiership title challenge.
And some extraordinary stats from the J League show just what Maeda would bring to the attack if he does touch down in Glasgow.
The division’s official account put out a top 10 list of sprints per game and incredibly Maeda occupied eight of the top 10 positions in the list.
Kei Koshumi, then of Kawashima Antlers, came in eighth but the only player to get close to the striker was a potential future team-mate – Kyogo Furuhashi.
The forward has become an instant darling of the Celtic support since he arrived in the summer, as much for his selfless work as his goals and technical quality.
Given the numbers that his compatriot has been putting up for Marinos, it seems he’d be a similar hit.
