Celtic have been told they must pay upwards of £850,000 if they want to follow up their interest in Croatia Under-21 defender Dino Skvorc.

Croatian side NK Varazdin have allowed the 20-year-old to train with Celtic for a week with a view to a permanent transfer.

However, reports in Croatia claim Zenit St Petersburg and Udinese are also tracking the player.

His club`s manager, Samir Toplak, told "We are in a delicate position because we do not have a replacement for him.

"Skvorc is extremely important to our team so any club that wants to buy him must pay seven figures. And in a foreign currency, preferably Euros. Otherwise we have nothing to talk about."
