Sports Witness – OSTERSUND, According to reports in the Swedish media, Celta Vigo are set for talks to sign Östersund forward Saman Ghoddos.
Ghoddos has been a revelation in the Europa League this season with OFK, and his performances have also brought him to the attention of West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City.
Fotboll Direkt report Celta Vigo will travel to Sweden to hold discussions over the signing of the Iran International. The Spanish club will be hoping to tie a deal up for Ghoddos before the World Cup after the player was this week selected by Iran.
Celta Vigo tried to sign Ghoddos in the last transfer window after tabling a bid of 50m Krona (£4.25m).
Earlier in the season Leicester City and West Brom made their intentions known when they watched the Ghoddos play against Arsenal in the Europa League.
Leicester City and West Brom will be looking to strengthen in the next window, but with the Baggies relegated to the Championship they will find it difficult to convince the player.
