Celtic face a battle with Belgian giants Anderlecht and Serie A side Torino for the signature of Bulgarian wonder-kid Martin Minchev.

We exclusively revealed that the Hoops are monitoring the progress of the 19-year-old striker, who already boasts 10 goals in 74 appearances for top-flight outfit Cherno More. 

The talented teenager has already notched four caps after making his international debut in a 1-1 draw against Montenegro in March and is valued at £1.5 million. 

However, Celtic are unlikely to have any pursuit all their own way. 

Torino are known to be long-term admirers of the youngster and, according to Bulgarian publication Top Sport, have a concrete interest in a transfer. 

Anderlecht are also thought to be in the running, albeit their perilous financial situation could make funding a move an issue.  

CSKA Sofia would like to do a deal but local media have suggested they are likely to be priced out of contention. 

Minchev would add to a Parched attacking pool that already boasts Odsonne Edouard, Leigh Griffiths, Vakoun Issouf Bayo and Patryk Klimala.
