Celtic are closing in on the signing of African teenager Kouassi Eboue.
The Daily Express is reporting that the Scottish giants have agreed a £2.8million fee with Russian side FC Krasnodar for the 19-year-old Ivory Coast midfielder.
Eboue's agent, Yves Amagbegnon, believes his client can become Celtic's next Victor Wanyama, who arrived at the Glasgow club as a relatively unknown defensive midfielder and is now a star at Tottenham Hotspur, via Southampton.
"Eboue is not yet at the level of Wanyama but I believe he can reach this standard in a year and will have lots of clubs interested in him," said Amagbegnon.
"Just like Wanyama, Eboue is a powerful player and wants to learn. He is ready for this move, even though he is very young and has not played many games in Russia.
"Celtic is a great club and if everything is OK then this is a very good move for the player."
