The Hoops and Yehuda have agreed on a deal over the transfer of the 21-year-old midfielder, according to the report, which claims that he will undergo a medical before putting pen to paper four-and-a-half year contract.

 

Promising talent

Celtic need to refresh their midfield department, and Soro is a very good player who has a bright future ahead of him.

The Ivorian will add more dynamism to the Glasgow giants’ midfield, and the Hoops will be a better team with him in it.

Another January signing

If Soro signs for Celtic, then the 21-year-old will become manager Neil Lennon’s second signing of the January transfer window.

The Glasgow giants recently recruited striker Patryk Klimala from Jagiellonia Bialystok.

Celtic are aiming to win the domestic treble, and are also in the knockout rounds of the Europa League.
