Celtic have been chasing Alexandro Bernabei for a number of weeks and the hoops now look set to land their man!

We brought your the very latest at 4pm on Tuesday when a high profile Argentine journalist revealed the deal was close. Since then, the story has been moving fast and there’s much more meat on the bones as Alexandro gets sort to make Celtic history.

The left-back looks set to become Celtic’s FIRST EVER Argentinian player.

Celtic fans don’t miss a beat online when a player looks like he’s coming to the club.

Since the 4pm news, we’ve saw an Instagram of Bernabei saying bye to a close friend as various Argentine news outlets confirm the news the defender is Glasgow bound.

Alexandro on his way.

Celtic loaned out Liam Scales to Aberdeen earlier on Tuesday, paving the way for this move to be completed.

Alexandro will come to Glasgow and take part in a medical before the deal becomes official but everything looks good for his incoming transfer.

The biggest sports outlet in Argentina TyC sports confirmed Alexandro is on his way.

Celtic Transfer Timing

The bhoys are due back at Lennoxtown next week. We were expecting some transfer activity going into this weekend with Ange looking to have some new players at the club for the return to training.

Not everyone will be re-joining the squad next week with international bhoys afforded some time off after their games during the summer.

We’ll keep you up to date with this Celtic transfer as it happens!
