Celtic may have to spend big this summer if they are to land one of their transfer targets.
The Dons are believed to want more than the £4.4million that the Hoops had paid Hibernian to land Scott Brown back in 2007.
Celtic are understood to have already had an opening offer knocked back for the defender, as they look to add strength to their backline, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Dedryck Boyata’s future at the club.
However, Aberdeen themselves do not want to lose their best defender and it appears Brendan Rodgers’ side will need to make a serious offer for the Pittodrie outfit to even consider selling to a Scottish Premiership rival.
Celtic are in desperate need to add to their defence this summer, given everything that is currently going on.
Rodgers’ defence has looked far from solid at times, especially recently when they were sent crashing out of the Champions League and suffered a defeat to Heart of Midlothian.
However, it remains to be seen if the Bhoys will splash out on the £1.13m-rated defender (via Transfermarkt) or if they will turn elsewhere with just over a week until the transfer window closes.
