Celta Vigo "very close" to Adem Ljajic deal

Celta Vigo sporting director Felipe Minambres confirms that his club are "very close" to signing Roma attacker Adem Ljajic.

Celta Vigo sporting director Felipe Minambres has confirmed that his club are "very close" to bringing Roma attacker Adem Ljajic to Spain.

Ljajic spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan at Inter Milan from Roma, but the San Siro outfit opted against signing the Serbian international on a permanent deal.

Minambres has insisted that the deal to sign the 24-year-old is not yet completed, but is seemingly confident that the move will take place.

"Ljajic is a player who interests us. We're very close, but at the moment it's not done. The window is open, we're looking for a goalkeeper, a central defender and an attacking wildcard like Ljajic," Minambres told reporters.

"If we can't get him, we'll move on to other options. There are many players around who can adapt smoothly to Celta Vigo's project. Ljajic would always be our first choice though, and we hope to announce his signing within the next week."

Ljajic, who joined Roma from Fiorentina in 2013, scored four times in 28 appearances for Inter last term.
