Manchester United and Manchester City have been put on red alert after it emerged in The Scotsman that Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk could leave in the summer.
The Dutch centre back has done well at Celtic Park since his £2.6 million transfer from Groningen last summer and was one of their stars of their Champions League displays.
This has attracted attention from top clubs in England, including Manchester United and Manchester City, and his agent Henk-Maarten Chin has now admitted that he could be on the move at the end of the season.
He said: “There is certainly interest. Many English clubs are interested in him – the absolute top clubs.
“They watch him and are very keen. There have been no official approaches for Virgil yet but that will come after the season ends.
“There’s certainly far more interest in him than we could have dreamed of.
“I expect something will happen for him this summer. The intention would be for him to earn a top transfer.”
The 22-year-old is contracted to Celtic until 2017, but the Scottish Premiership leaders would find it difficult to turn down bids of £10 million.
