Celtic are reportedly weighing up a January transfer bid for Aberdeen star Bojan Miovski.

The North Macedonian striker has been a hit with the Dons since he arrived at the club, scoring 18 goals last term, and notching 11 this season already.

The Sun now report that Brendan Rodgers is a huge admirer of Miovski with Celtic having scouted him during every match this season.

Celtic are looking to bolster their attacking options in January with Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda, and Oh Hyeon-gyu all likely to be involved in the Asia Cup shortly after the new year.

The story also goes on to state that Celtic would need to pay a record fee for a player to be sold between two Scottish clubs to gain his services in the January transfer window.

That record currently stands at £4.4million, a fee that was paid by Celtic for Scott Brown from Hibs, but it is understood that Aberdeen are looking for more.

Aberdeen are said to be accepting that Miovski will likely leave the club in the near future, but they are keen to keep him on their books for the remainder of the season, at the very least.

Miovski moved to the Granite City for  a bargain fee of £650,000 from MTK Budapest 18 months ago and has been a huge hit in the Scottish Premiership.

The Sun also state that Rangers have scouted Miovski, but the fee being discussed will likely price the Ibrox outfit out of January negotiations. English clubs are also said to be monitoring the striker's situation heading into the January window.

Speaking in May, Aberdeen's chief executive Alan Burrows said: “We are under no pressure to sell.

“If anybody wants to take our best assets away from us, particularly ones on long contracts, we are going to be very difficult to deal with.”
