Ange Postecoglou’s plans to bring Daizen Maeda from Yokohama F Marinos have been reported today. The 24-year-old that can play either on the left or through the middle has scored 18 goals and bagged 3 assists. The news that Maeda is being lined up with a move to Celtic has resulted in many examining the stats behind the man. One stat sticks out especially, which was posted last month by the J-League.

The player would fit perfectly into Ange’s strategy of high-press, high intensity attacking football. The fact that he is able to sprint so much speaks to excellent fitness levels and an understanding of how the boss wants to play. Ange Postecoglou has stated that the club plan to revisit the J-League after the successful acquisition of Kyogo Furuhashi from Vissel Kobe as well as bringing the manager from Yokohama F Marinos. Now, Maeda is being linked with Paradise, there is a reasonable belief that he is one of a few players being scouted by Celtic.

Postecoglou was only able to get one signing from the J-League in the form of the centre forward. Kyogo has scored eight times in eleven games for the club since arriving for an undisclosed fee. Celtic have been linked with a number of players from the top division due to the success of Kyogo’s arrival. After the arrival of the Japanese International, the club have moved to create new potential revenue streams in Japan – something that could be bolstered by another signing from Japan.
