The Bulgaria international has regularly been linked with a move to Celtic, and is also reportedly a target of Italian duo Fiorentina and Lazio.

However, the 23-year-old is prepared to reject the opportunity to head to Serie A in favour of playing regular UEFA Champions League football at Parkhead.

"It's an honour to know Celtic are interested in me," Tonev told the Daily Record.

"They have a big history and their performance in Europe this year has shown they are ready to create new history.

"Last summer there were Italian teams interested and even though Serie A is one of the top leagues it's important for me I consistently play Champions League football. Celtic is somewhere I could achieve that.

"I just concentrate on playing. Hopefully a move can be organised this summer."

Tonev still has two seasons to run on his contract but reports suggest Lech would accept an offer in the region of £2m.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
