Chelsea’s Mario Pasalic is reportedly on the radar of Celtic and Leeds United.

Celtic are interested in signing Mario Pasalic from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to ABCSevilla.

The report has also credited Leeds United with interest in the 22-year-old midfielder, with Turkish giants Galatasaray and Italian club Lazio also claimed to want the youngster.

Spanish side Real Betis want Pasalic as well, according to ABCSevilla, which claims that Chelsea value him at over €10 million (£8.84m).

Leeds United or Celtic?

Pasalic has been on the books of Chelsea since 2014 and spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan at Italian club AC Milan.

The Croatia international is a very talented and promising young midfielder, and he would be a good signing for Leeds or Celtic.

The youngster would be a good signing for Leeds, but would it be wise of the Championship club to spend almost £10m to sign a 22-year-old?

Celtic can afford that kind of money, but wouldn’t it better for the Scottish Premiership giants to invest that money in a more proven player?

Pasalic scored five goals and provided one assist in 24 Serie A appearances for Milan during the 2016-17 campaign, according to WhoScored.
