‘In the know’ Celtic account on Twitter @SeanS1967, has provided supporters with some breaking news this morning.
This is the account that first reported on Christopher Jullien joining Schalke on a year long loan deal with a £3m option to buy, with Celtic triggering an extra year on his contract in the process.
He claims that Brazilian midfield enforcer, Vinicius Souza, is in “advanced talks with Celtic” and that that the club ‘hope to have him fly out to Austria next week for pre-season with the squad”.
This is hugely exciting news as Souza seems to be one of our top transfer targets in this window.
Any deal that is done with Celtic will very much likely be a season long loan deal with an option to buy, much like the Jota and CCV deal, and the price will probably be similar to purchase the player on a permanent basis.
With Jota and CCV both signed up permanently and Bernabei in the door too, it looks like full attention will now be given to Souza to try to get this deal over the line.
