According to reports from Sky Sports, Scottish champions Celtic will have to offer around £10million fee to sign Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna.
The news tabloid claim on their website that the Hoops are preparing to table an offer for the 21-year-old Scotland international as they look to bring in a new centre-back before the 31st August when the window finally gets closed.
Although, it’s reported that Celtic’s bid is unlikely to match Aberdeen’s £10million asking price for their academy product, who has five years remaining on his contract.
McKenna will definitely worth every penny the Hoops will be spending as they have been crying out for a commanding centre-back, especially after Dedryck Boyata drama that left the team in need of a strong upgrade.
McKenna has made huge progress in the last year after he graduated from Aberdeen youth ranks, and it is this performance that earn his call-up to Scotland team earlier this year.
Sky claim Aberdeen have rejected offers from Championship side Swansea and Hull for their prized asset in the last two transfer windows, which showes the demand for his McKenna’s signature.
Celtic, however, could be the Championship to the signing of the McKenna this summer and there is plenty of time left in the window for an agreement.
