CELTIC are reportedly in a two-horse race to sign Brazilian midfielder Vinicius Souza.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Parkhead since the start of the transfer window on Friday.

Talks between Ange Postecoglou's side and Belgian outfit Mechelen are said to already be underway.

It's been claimed that the player has several offers on the table, though. 

Now, Takvim report that Celtic are involved in a straight two-horse race with Fenerbahce for Souza. 

The Turkish giants are believed to be after a permanent deal, with the Hoops more keen on an initial loan with a view to buy in the future.
