Celtic have been handed a huge blow in their pursuit of long-term target Edson Alvarez, with the defender signing a new deal with current side Club America, The Scotsman report.

The Hoops have been tracking the Mexico international over the past six months and were contemplating a move for the player back in January.

Even though Celtic never stepped up their interest back in January, the club were believed to have been keeping a close eye on Alvarez’s situation ahead of the summer.

The 21-year-old was valued at £9m last month, however, Celtic may have to break their club-record transfer fee by some distance if they are to lure the defender to Celtic Park.

The Hoops look set to lose Dedryck Boyata this summer to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin and may face competition to sign Filip Benkovic on loan from Leicester City.

However, incomings at Celtic Park may well have to be put on hold while the Hoops consider who should land the managerial vacancy.
