The 19-year-old winger has long been linked with a permanent move to Manchester City and a subsequent immediate loan to the Scottish champions.

Sky Sports reports today that Arzani's move from Melbourne City to the Sky Blues has now been completed, with the English transfer window closing at 5pm UK time on August 9.

The report continues that Arzani has passed a medical with Celtic, with the switch to be made official in the next 24 hours.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers had last month described Arzani as an "exciting young talent".

Arzani dazzled in three appearances off the bench at the 2018 World Cup for Australia.

The youngster won the 2017/18 A-League Young Player of the Year and was named in the Team of the Season.
