Cesena striker Milan Djuric is a reported target for Celtic.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Celtic have made a bid to sign Cesena striker Milan Djuric - but have been rebuffed in their attempts.

The Bhoys are in the market for a new striker this summer, with John Guidetti's loan from Manchester City ending, whilst Stefan Scepovic has struggled to make an impact since joining from Sporting Gijon last summer.

Now, reports in Italy suggest that Celtic are pursuing Cesena striker Djuric, but are some way off agreeing a deal to sign the Bosnian international.

Djuric, 25, stands at 6ft 6in and is known for his strength and aerial ability, presenting the ideal target man figure to lead the line in attack.

Having recently earned his first cap for Bosnia, Djuric is on the rise - and Celtic want to bring him to Glasgow, according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sports Italia.

The report states that Celtic have already offered €1m to sign Djuric this summer, though Cesena have rejected the bid - because they want up to three times that amount.

Ronny Deila's men will now have to triple their bid in order to land Djuric, which may be too pricey for a player who has scored just 26 goals in 182 games in Italian football.
