Celtic have launched their attempt to sign Kilmarnock star Greg Taylor.

It’s understood the eight in a row winners got in touch with the Rugby Park club on Thursday to ask how much they wanted for their left-back.

And it’s believed Celtic were told £3million.

The Hoops are still interested in the Scotland cap but do not want to go as high as the figure quoted.

Celtic have not tabled a bid but there is expected to be an offer made over the next 48 hours.

Killie chairman Billy Bowie is aware Taylor is keen on the move.

Talks between the clubs and the player’s representatives are due to continue to see if an agreement can be thrashed out.

Celtic are likely to go to around £1million as well as including the offer of players on loan.

Kilmarnock are keen on Jack Hendry and he could be included to try to smooth over any deal.

 

Celtic are looking to get the transfer sealed so Taylor is for next week’s derby with Rangers.

The Hoops are in the market after selling Kieran Tierney to Arsenal for £25million.

They have signed Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo from Rapid Vienna for £3m but Neil Lennon wants another player in that position to provide competition.
