Celtic informed of Tonev fee
The agent of Aleksandar Tonev, who has been linked with Celtic,
claims a deal could be done for his client at ?2m.
The Hoops are believed to be weighing up a summer approach for
the Lech Poznan winger.
It was suggested that they would need to part with around
?3million for the highly-rated 23-year-old.
Tonev’s representative claims that figure may be slightly
inflated, but has warned Celtic they will need to act quickly if
they wish to push through a transfer, with Serie A giants Lazio
having also expressed an interest.
Gianfranco Cicchetti said in the Daily Record: “During the
winter break, several Italian clubs showed interest in him, but we
could not do a deal.
“Then the price was ?1.5m, but after his recent excellent
displays and his hat-trick for Bulgaria against Malta, I would say
the transfer is close to ?2m.
“It’s best to do a deal as soon as possible because that price
could rise further if he keeps going like this.
“It’s no secret Lazio are most keen. They have been watching him
for over a year.”
