Maeda who has already worked under Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou at Yokohama F Marinos – finished last season as the joint-top scorer in the J-League and featured in the division’s best XI.

When asked about a potential move to Europe, he said: “I felt that I still have a long way to go after playing against foreign players.

“If I don’t experience playing in a foreign league, I won’t be able to close the gap, so if I have a chance, I’d love to go to such a stage.”
