Shon Weissman is reported to have turned down an offer to move to China.

The striker has been linked with Celtic over the last two months with Wolfsburger President Dietmar Riegler claiming that his club had received an offer from the Scottish champions.

Weissman signed a two year contract with Wolfsberger a year ago but it seems unlikely that he will play again for the Austrian side after netting 30 goals in 31 Bundesliga matches.

Top scorer in Austrian D1 this season, Israeli striker Shon Weissman received a tempting offer from a Chinese D1 team . The striker refused, preferring to play in Europe next season.

It has been claimed that Weissman is looking for a move to England or Germany but Celtic could offer that halfway house with the possibility of Champions League football to showcase his talents. It’s an option that Virgil van Dijk and Moussa Dembele can vouch for.

Celtic currently have four first team strikers but Vakoun Bayo and Patryk Klimala are both untried while there are question marks over the futures of Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard.

Wolfsberger paid Maccabi Haifa £450,000 for Weissman last summer.
