11:21 AM ET 11.25 | U.S. international forward Juan Agudelo admits a move to Celtic could be intriguing, though he is still considering all of his options. The Chivas USA striker had a week-long training stint with the Scottish giant based in Glasgow, and according to the club's manager, Neil Lennon, he impressed. "He has looked very good, we have been very impressed with him," Lennon told STV. "We are hoping he will stay around for a few more days and we can talk with his representatives." Lennon continued to praise Agudelo, who turned 20 on Friday, saying, "I haven't had the chance to sit down with everyone and discuss it, but myself and my backroom team have been very impressed." Agudelo has one year remaining on his current contract with Major League Soccer. While he has shown glimpses of his full potential with the United States national team and the New York Red Bulls, he scored just three goals in his first season as a full-time starter in LA. But despite a poor statistical season, Agudelo's potential and the lower asking price on the final year of his contract makes him a intriguing player for European clubs to sign.
