Mexican star Efrain Juarez has not agreed a deal with Celtic as he is hopeful of sealing a move to England or Spain.
Scottish sources had suggested that the full-back, who can also play in midfield, was on the brink of sealing a move to Celtic.
His agent Jorge Berlanga admits the interest from Scotland, but suggested he was more inclined to wait for a move to England or Spain.
"I will be starting negotiations during this week for Efrain to play in Europe," Berlanga confirmed.
"What I can say for the moment is that he has not accepted any offers to play in Scotland because he prefers other leagues like the Spanish and English.
"I cannot say the names in Spain and England, but what I can say is that he will not be continuing with Pumas."
The 22-year-old impressed at the World Cup finals and now he is hoping that will result in a move.
"The club and my agent are in talks," said Juarez, who has also been linked with West Ham.
"There are approaches, but I cannot talk because it does not come to me but to my club and my agent.
"If I leave, then obviously this will be a dream come true."
