The Herald - Sport - - CELTIC 1 AJAX 2 -

CELTIC have been left stunned af­ter Croa­t­ian side Ri­jeka placed a £4 mil­lion price tag on tar­get Marko Leskovic.

The Scot­tish cham­pi­ons have mon­i­tored the 24-year-old in­ter­na­tional de­fender for some time now.

And they were preparing to launch a bid of £1.5m for Leskovic, who has been capped three times by Croa­tia.

How­ever, his club Ri­jeka are in no rush to sell and know that Lazio and Braga are also in­ter­ested in the classy stop­per.

They have in­di­cated to Celtic they are look­ing for around £4m for them to sell Leskovic, who still has two years left on his deal.

Ri­jeka have no fi­nan­cial wor­ries af­ter pock­et­ing £9m from Le­ices­ter for striker An­drej Kra­maric last sea­son and they also noted Celtic forked out a re­ported £4m to ri­vals Di­namo Za­greb this sea­son for Jozo Simunovic.
