CELTIC target Luis Palma is on the brink of a £4million move to the champions.
The Honduran winger is expected to become the Hoops’ seventh summer signing after his Greek club Aris Thessaloniki reportedly accepted an enhanced offer from last season’s treble-winners.
The 23-year-old international was allowed to sit out training today and is likely to miss Sunday’s Super league game against Lamia.
NET PROFIT…Luis Palma is poised for a massive wage hike at Celtic.
It now appears to be between Palma and the Parkhead money men to get the deal over the line with local media outlet Gazzetta insisting the forward has been offered over £500,000-per-year in a five-season contract.
That works out at around £10,400 per week which is a huge increase on his salary at Aris which is quoted at £70,000 per year.
It is also alleged there has been interest from two Saudi Arabian clubs, but the goalscoring flanker is eager to continue his career in Europe.
The Hoops’ six recruits so far have been Marco Tilio (£2m), Odin Holm (£2.25m), Yang Hyun-jun (£2.1m), Kwon Hyeon-kyu (£850,000), Maik Nawrocki (£4.3m) and Gustaf Lagerbiekle (£3m).
