CELTIC expect to seal their move for Melbourne City winger Marco Tilio within the next 48 hours.
Brendan Rodgers is poised to add his second quickfire signing to the squad with the highly-rated Aussie joining Norwegian midfielder Odin Thiago Holm who arrived on a five-year deal last week, as CQN reported.
The transfer fee and personal terms for Tilio have been agreed and the move is on the brink of being completed with a work permit about to be rubberstamped as the Hoops strengthen for the new campaign.
The champions are poised to smash the A-League transfer record for the 21-year-old talent who can play on either right or left flanks.
OZ-SOME…Marco Tilio on duty for the Socceroos.
Tilio has been flagged up as a signing with huge potential after an outstanding 2022/23.
The five times-capped international scored 10 goals last season as City won the A-League to attract scouts throughout Europe.
The returning Hoops manager, speaking to the Scottish Sun, said: “It’s a good time to strengthen whenever you have done well. It’s not going to be lots of numbers.
“Over the last couple of years they have built a squad, so it’s a case of developing that and adding quality where we can.
