West Brom could lose highly-rated teenager Rekeem Harper to Celtic this summer for just £235,000, according to the Express and Star.
The report states that the six-figure fee would cover the cost of a compensation package for the midfielder, who is also being monitored by Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City.
Harper has been offered a second deal by the Baggies, with West Brom reportedly unwilling to up the offer for the 19-year-old any more.
If Harper decides to reject the deal from his current club, Celtic could sign the player for just £235,000 this summer.
However, if Harper decides to remain in England the Baggies could earn a larger fee, which would be determined by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.
Previous cases have seen Chelsea pay Manchester City £6.5m for Daniel Sturridge and Liverpool hand Burnley £8m for Danny Ings.
However, the Scottish giants are the front runners to secure the player’s services over the summer, with Harper present at Celtic Park last Sunday to watch Neil Lennon’s side lift the Scottish Premiership title.
Why Harper may consider Celtic over Tottenham and Norwich
Chance to be a first-team star
Harper could be persuaded by Celtic over the chance to become a key member of the Hoops midfield in years to come.
Regular game time
The midfielder would more than likely gain more minutes on the pitch in Scotland.
Celtic will once again compete in the Champions League next year. Even though Tottenham will also be playing in the competition, Harper would more than likely be playing more for Celtic.
Improve international chances
Harper could see a move to Scotland improve his international chances. The teenager is currently capped at Under-19 level and could earn an Under-21 and even senior England call-up over the next few years with a series of consistent performances.
