Celtic have agreed a fee forLegia Warsaw fullback Josip Juranovic, according to reports in the UK.
The Hoops are expected to pay around £2.5m for the Croatian international with the deal likely to be made official in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Juranovic will provide much-needed competition for Anthony Ralston at right-back and supporters on Twitter are happy that the club are close to bringing in another reinforcement for Ange Postecoglou’s squad:

If the transfer is confirmed, it will be Celtic’s eighth signing of the summer transfer window, after Kyogo Furuhashi, Carl Starfelt, Liel Abada, Joe Hart, Liam Shaw, Osaze Urhoghide and James McCarthy.
Juranovic has ten caps for Croatia at senior level and he played for his country at the European Championships earlier this summer so he will bring a good deal of experience with him to Celtic Park.
Even so, many fans still feel more additions will be needed before the window closes. Another centre-back, as well as a striker, are expected to be targeted but whether the Hoops can get more deals over the line, we shall see.
