CELTIC teenage ace Rocco Vata is one of the hottest young prospects in Europe.

The starlet has caught the attention of Serie A giants Juventus, AC Milan and Roma, according to a report from Italian media outlet TUTTOmercato.

Rocco, son of former Hoops’ Albanian international Rudi Vata, is apparently also on the radar of Manchester City and Arsenal.

The 17-year-old forward has been a regular in Celtic’s B team and has claimed four goals in 11 appearances in the Lowland League this season.

The Republic of Ireland youth international was also on target in the UEFA Youth League when he scored in one minute in the youngsters’ 2-1 win over their RB Leipzig counterparts in Germany.

His form has been flagged up by the Italian outlet, but it also stated Ange Postecoglou has no intention of selling the wonderkid who is under contract until May 2024.

Vata signed his first professional contract with the club last summer and has already been rated in the £1.75million bracket by the champions, according to the report.

The bright Bhoy has chosen to represent the country of his mother, but is also available for his homeland Scotland, Albania and Montenegro.

He has made several appearances during training at Lennoxtown with Postecoglou’s first-team squad in this campaign and also went on the pre-season tour.
