Celtic challenge Italians for Tonev

Lazio and Fiorentina are facing competition from Celtic in their attempts to sign Bulgarian international Aleksandar Tonev.

The Lech Poznan player can act as midfielder, wide man or even a support striker.

He just turned 23 last month and grew up in the CSKA Sofia youth academy before joining Polish side Lech Poznan in 2011.

There is Serie A interest for Tonev from the likes of Lazio and Fiorentina, but British newspapers suggest Celtic are also preparing an offer.
