Andy Rojas Celtic transfer fee Hoops can expect to pay amid Herediano attacker interest

Celtic can expect to pay around £800,000 for Herediano starlet Andy Rojas, Football Scotland can reveal.

Interest in the young Costa Rican starlet emerged last night suggesting the Hoops were keeping a close eye on the versatile attacker who can play across the frontline and has broken into the Herediano first-team squad. He made history at the Copa America in becoming his country's youngest ever cap at the tournament and that brought more eyes onto the player.

Celts are believed to be keen on the playmaker and sources in his homeland claim his worth to the club is close to around $1million which equates to just under £800k.

The player has other interested parties across Europe while there are also teams in Mexico and MLS keeping a close eye on the teen who is highly-rated.

It is believed that Brendan Rodgers' side could potentially even pay LESS than those clubs in the Americas with the player likely to push for a move to Europe.

It's not the first player in recent times from the area to be linked with a move to Scottish football.

Gerald Taylor joined Hearts from the country - also already boasting Kenneth Vargas - while the Americas also brought out interest from both Glasgow giants in Andres Montano.

A move to Scotland would have suited the midfielder but he would eventually make the switch to Cruz Azul to join former Celt Giorgos Giakoumakis.
