Celtic starlet Victor Wanyama is a target for a host of Premier League clubs and is hopeful of sealing a move to England this summer, Sky Sports understands.
Liverpool, Stoke City, Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle and West Ham United are all interested in landing the Kenyan midfielder.
Wanyama joined Celtic last summer from Belgian side Beerschot AC but his impact has been huge at Parkhead.
Celtic paid less than £1million for the 20-year-old but now a fee in excess of £6million is being talked about for Wanyama.
Clubs in Italy, Spain and France have all been impressed by Wanyama, but he is understood to be keen on a move to the Premier League.
Now Wanyama is ready to move from Celtic and his business manager Rob Moore has explained that he hopes the club would listen to offers if they came.
"That has been a lot of talk which is not necessarily true," Moore explained to Sky Sports.
"But he is like any other young talented footballer in that he wants to play at the highest level.
"He has made the club aware that if they receive an offer from one of the big leagues he would like them to consider it.
"He is not unhappy at Celtic, far from it - he loves the club and everything has been great for him since he moved but should something come in he feels they should listen."
