And SunSport believes coach Brendan Rodgers could register as many as FIVE signings in the coming days.

Several Celtic fringe men are also said to depart.

Honduran star Palma is set to sign a long-term deal and is expected to fill the void left by Jota.

Aris boss Tolis Terzis confirmed the 23-year-old will join the Parkhead club and could make his debut against Rangers on Sunday.

Rodgers is also targeting a center back for the Old Firm game following an injury crisis in that area.

Cameron Carter-Vickers and Maik Nawrocki will be out for two months, while Stephen Welsh is expected to be out for four months.

Southampton stopper Lyanco is one of many defenders offered to Celtic in recent days but is now heading to Qatar.

The Hoops gaffer is also on the lookout for a left-back.

He has been linked with Kieran Tierney but the Arsenal star has joined Real Sociedad on loan.

Strong support for Kyogo is also high on Rodgers’ wish list.

SunSport revealed Bröndby’s Mathias Kvistgaarden was on the Hoops’ radar with a face value of £4million, while the Celts are eyeing Manchester City’s Tommy Doyle – and a midfield reinforcement hasn’t been ruled out.

EPL clubs are set to make a plethora of players available on loan this week and Hoops chiefs are monitoring the situation.

And after the 0-0 draw against St. Johnstone, the manager made it clear that he needed players who could immediately improve the team.

The Hoops are unlikely to receive offers for regulars as a Bologna offer for Matt O’Riley was ruled out last week.

Reo Hatate is also attracting interest but Rodgers remains keen on signing him on a long-term deal despite the first proposal being rejected.

But fringe groups are likely to move on, including Sead Haksabanovic.

The Montenegrin has yet to start under Rodgers and came on as a second-half substitute on Saturday.

He posted a cryptic message on social media, which read, “If they don’t see your worth, you might not be in the right place.”

The 24-year-old would like to play regularly and should be able to leave if the offer is right.

Celtic’s third goalkeeper Benji Siegrist could also leave, while Rodgers has admitted James McCarthy will be allowed to find a new club.

Ismaila Soro and Albian Ajeti, both still at Celtic, could continue or even agree on a transfer.

Hoops kid Rocco Vata is expected to leave before Friday’s deadline, with Verona coming out on top.
