TEAMtalk have claimed that five different Premier League clubs hold an interest in signing Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, who is currently on loan at Celtic.
Carter-Vickers has been exceptional at Celtic Park so far this season, serving as a consistent performer at the back for Ange Postecoglou’s side.
It was previously reported the Scottish giants have the option to sign the centre-back for £6m at the end of his loan spell (Glasgow World), with some sources even claiming that the club have already opened talks with Spurs over a permanent deal (Sky Sports).
However, TEAMtalk have now claimed that Celtic’s option-to-buy clause with Tottenham is worth more than £10m including add-ons.
The report claims that the Scottish giants are interested in snapping up the Tottenham academy graduate but they face competition from a whole host of Premier League clubs.
Leicester, West Ham, Wolves, Burnley and Watford are all said to be monitoring the USA international’s progress.
In addition, three Championship clubs in Middlesbrough, West Brom and Bournemouth are also alleged to be showing interest in the centre-back.

If Premier League clubs are showing interest in Carter-Vickers, then Celtic will likely find it difficult to sign the 23-year-old permanently.
The defender would be naive to turn down the opportunity to play in the Premier League (or even a top Championship club) in favour of remaining at Celtic Park, given the relative quality of the Scottish top flight.
Tottenham will likely hope to get a bidding war going for the centre-back and push the transfer fee as high as possible.
