Sky Sports say Daniel Arzani’s two-year loan move to Celtic is set to be completed today.
The Australian winger has been linked with a switch to Manchester City and then the Hoops this summer.
He’s contracted to Melbourne City as of now, but it’s expected that English champions City will sign him on a permanent deal before offloading him to Celtic for the next two seasons on loan.
And just a day after Brendan Rodgers shared his frustration at a lack of signings for his club this summer, Sky Sports say a deal for Arzani should be completed today:

Arzani was at the World Cup with Australia earlier this summer, making three appearances for his country in group games against France, Denmark and Peru.
And now the 19-year-old has got his big move, with City taking him from Melbourne – who are owned by the same group – and sending him to Celtic.
They’ve done that sort of deal with other players and teams in the past, while Arzani will be the latest in a line of City stars to have signed for Celtic.
