Celtic have been linked with a move for Valencia striker Patrick Kluivert.
Valencia have confirmed they have fielded a number of enquiries for peripheral striker Patrick Kluivert - with one reported to have come from Celtic manager Gordon Strachan.
Che coach Quique Sanchez Flores has already told the Dutch international that he does not figure in his long-term plans and is free to leave the club.
Kluivert still has a year remaining on his contract with the Mestalla outfit, the side he joined after leaving Newcastle, following an unproductive 12 months in the North East.
Hamburg appeared to be a possible destination until the Bundesliga club pulled the plug on a transfer they considered 'too big a risk', but Valencia's sporting director, Amedeo Carboni, is expecting further bids for the 29-year-old.
Recent speculation suggests Hoops manager Strachan, amongst others, is weighing up a move, although Carboni does not expect an immediate resolution to Kluivert's future.
"Several European clubs are interested in Kluivert but the situation is quite complicated," said Carboni.
