One-time Celtic and Rangers target set for Bundesliga transfer, €7m fee, teenage wonderkid

Highly-rated Israeli teenager Oscar Gloukh, who has been linked with both Celtic and Rangers, is on the verge of a move to the Bundesliga.

The 18-year-old has attracted plenty of attention since breaking through at Maccabi Tel Aviv with the teenager having netted nine times in 33 appearances for the Israeli giants. This campaign has seen him become a first-team regular, starting 14 matches, scoring four and setting up a further eight, including one in a recent 3-0 win over Maccabi Haifa.

According to Fabrizio Romano, RB Leipzig have won the race for his signature with a fee of €7million. All that is left are formalities such as the medical which is scheduled for Thursday.
