£12m bid reportedly rejected: Celtic must beat PL side to sign Serie A powerhouse – view

European experience

Zapata, who is known for his powerful frame and ability to shake off an opponent, has clocked up 15 appearances throughout his career in European competitions.

During those encounters, the Napoli powerhouse has scored four goals against the likes of Marseille, Porto and Trabzonspor.

That knowledge of how to find the back of the net in European competition would be key to Celtic going one better in the Champions League, if they reach the group stages.
