Celtic Have Made a ‘Breakthrough’ in Ismaila Soro Transfer Chase

Celtic Have Made a ‘Breakthrough’ in Ismaila Soro Transfer Chase

It looks like Celtic are on the brink of signing Ismaila Soro after the Scottish Champions made a ‘breakthrough’ in the attempts to lure the midfielder to Glasgow.

The 21-year-old Ivorian is currently playing for Israeli side Bnei Yehuda and, as we told you yesterday, was thought to have played his final match for the club in last night’s 1-0 Israel State Cup win over Hapoel Afula.

And now STV are reporting that Neil Lennon and the Hoops hierarchy made a ‘breakthrough’ in their negotiations to nab Soro’s signature on Thursday afternoon, with Belgian side Genk also keeping tabs on the situation.

Celtic completed the signing of striker Patryk Klimala earlier this week, but the 2-1 defeat at home to arch enemies Rangers on December 29 underlined Lennon’s need to add reinforcements during the January transfer window.

He might not be the finished article, but do you think the capture of Soro represents a step in the right direction for Celtic?
