AC Milan defender Dario Simic has revealed his interest in joining Celtic this summer.
The 32-year-old Croatia international is currently away at Euro 2008 but is hoping to secure a move to the SPL champions after the tournament.
Simic, who has also been linked with a move to Galatasaray, started just one Serie A game for Milan last season.
"Galatasaray want me to join them and Celtic want me too," he told the Daily Record.
"If I could choose there is no doubt I'd prefer to join Celtic.
"They are a big club with an amazing football culture and there is nothing more exciting than the prospect of playing in a Glasgow derby against Rangers.
"I am talking about the situation to Milan and hoping a move can take place.
"My desire is to play outside of Italy next season.
"I've been here a very long time with Inter and AC Milan and I want to taste a new league."
