Scottish giants Celtic are closing in on AIK defender Jos Hooiveld.
The Dutch centre-half has travelled to Glasgow for a medical and is expected to sign as soon as the clubs have reached an agreement.
The 26-year-old was instrumental when AIK won the Swedish title last year and the club are thought to want around 1.5 million euros (£1.35m) for their star.
AIK sports director Bjorn Wesstrom told Sportbladet: "I am in Glasgow and negotiations are going on between the clubs.
"I will be a good deal for AIK if it takes place."
Hooiveld's agent Alex Kroes added: "It's correct, Celtic really want him.
"When the final negotiations start, I will travel to Glasgow."
