The Lowdown: Lanus exit links
The Argentine has just over 12 months remaining on his contract with Lanus, something which has seen his future thrown up in the air, and the Hoops haven’t wasted any time in taking advantage of his situation.
Eyebrows were raised earlier this month after the left-back was missing from the Primera Division’s match-day squad, hinting that he was edging closer to a possible exit, and after a fresh update, it looks as though a switch to Glasgow is officially on the cards.
The Latest: Bernabei set for Celtic medical
Loan superstar Jota is believed to be on the brink of sealing his permanent deal to return to Parkhead, and it now looks as though another name will be added to the ranks in Bernabei.
In an article published by Football Insider, it’s claimed that the flying full-back has ‘told friends he is signing for Celtic’ after agreeing ‘personal terms’.
The 21-year-old is believed to have ‘received an offer’ from Parkhead, with a £3.75m transfer fee agreement reached.
It’s reported that a club source has told the website that their target has been ‘given permission’ to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on a contract, with the move expected to be completed ‘in the coming days’.
The Verdict: Competition for Taylor
Bernabei now looks set to become Ange Postecoglou’s third signing of the summer after Cameron Carter-Vickers and Benjamin Siegrist, and he will be able to push Greg Taylor for a place in the Bhoys’ starting XI.
During his spell at Lanus, the defender has provided ten assists as well as managing to get on the scoresheet four times himself, via Transfermarkt, showing impressive end product from the flank.
Would Bernabei be a good coup for Celtic?
Bernabei has the pace and possesses the attacking qualities down the wing that would perfectly suit the Australian boss’ front-footed system, and so has the potential to contribute to plenty of Celtic success in years to come.
