Tonev, 23, claimed he had the option to move to Italy last summer with Lazio and Fiorentina reportedly the sides interested in his services. But the Lech Poznan winger would prefer a move to Scotland where he can develop his game in the Champions League.

"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 some 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."

With two years remaining on his current deal it is believed a fee of around £2 million could secure the services of Tonev.
