Celtic are reportedly on the verge of signing midfielder Ismaila Soro from Israeli top-flight club Bnei Yehuda.
According to Sport1, the Bhoys have agreed a £2.1million deal with Bnei Yehuda’s board for him.
It is understood that the 21-year-old is expected to join the Bhoys imminently and he will now travel to Glasgow to complete a move.
The report explains that he will pen a four-and-a-half year contract at Parkhead and make the switch to the Scottish giants in the January transfer window.
Neil Lennon’s team look set to wrap up a deal for Soro and they will hope that he can make an immediate impact in their midfield.
Celtic need some fresh faces to arrive in January to breathe new life into their season, as they are now in a real scrap with Old Firm rivals Rangers for the title and also have the Europa League knockouts ahead of them.
Soro is a defensive midfielder that has been an ever-present in Bnei Yehuda’s team this season and did feature in Europa League qualifying for him.
The Ivory Coast youngster is set to make a big step up with a move to Celtic and it will be intriguing to see if he’s ready to compete for a first-team spot immediately.
