Celtic emerge as favourites for Del Piero

Alessandro Del Piero could be a shock arrival in the SPL if Celtic can fend off interest from Tottenham over the next 48 hours.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian attacker is interested in a move to the Scottish Champions after rejecting a move to Sion in favour of a Champions League side as well, as a change from Italian football – where he has spent his career.

Spurs are said to be weighing up an offer for the free agent but the opportunity to have another season in Europe’s top competition seems to be pulling Del Piero to Celtic – they qualified for the group stage last night following a two leg victory over Helsingborg.

One of the most well known faces of Italian football in the last two decades, Del Piero spent the majority of his career at Juventus where he played a total of 698 games for the club, scoring 286 goals during19 years in Turin.
