European giants Fiorentina and Valencia have joined the race for Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic, the Canberra Times reports.

Rogic's Bhoys contract expires in 2017 and a number of clubs in England, notably Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Arsenal, have already been linked with summer moves.

The Australia international, who is set to face England at the Stadium of Light on Friday, was Celtic's second top scorer last season with 10 goals, and the report claims he is wanted long-term by new manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rogic's international commitments have so far prevented talks over his future from taking place and according to the Canberra Times, the Bhoys could be forced to cash in if an agreement cannot be reached.

As many as four Italian sides are said to be keen on the 23-year-old, though only Fiorentina are named by the report, alongside Spaniards Valencia and Levante, who were relegated from La Liga this month.

And both top-flight clubs could have reason to be interested, amid reports linking their key attacking midfielders with moves to England.

Fiorentina's Josip Ilicic, who scored 13 goals for Paulo Sousa's side last season, is reportedly wanted by Liverpool and Leicester City, while Valencia's Andre Gomes is an alleged target for Manchester United.

Rogic's international teammate Mat Ryan is currently on the books of Los Che.
