The 19-year-old has made a huge impact with the Sky Blues this season after switching from AZ Alkmaar last summer.[LNB]A host of clubs are understood to be checking on him and Celtic are believed to have been keeping tabs on him for a number of months.[LNB]Gunnarsson is currently in Scotland with the rest of the Iceland squad as they prepare for the World Cup qualifier at Hampden on Wednesday.[LNB]And the Icelandic youngster insists that the Scottish giants are still keen on him.[LNB]"I haven't heard anything more about Celtic other than the fact they are still watching me at Coventry. Celtic are a big team with a fantastic support and are regularly in the Champions League," Gunarsson told the Daily Record.[LNB]"That makes them an attractive proposition for any player. I'm young and have plenty of time to think about it.[LNB]"I hope to play at Hampden and if I play well I don't think that would do my chances of moving to Celtic any harm.[LNB]"I believe our style of football is suited to playing Scotland.[LNB]"Iceland have quite a few players now who play in the UK so of course that will help us in Glasgow on Wednesday."[LNB][LNB]
