Johansen flew in to Scotland on Monday night after Celtic boss Neil Lennon confirmed last week that he is interested in signing the 23-year-old.
Reports suggest Celtic will pay Stromsgodset £2million for the Norway international and Johansen is looking forward to the prospect of joining the Scottish champions.
"Hopefully everything will go to plan and I can become a Celtic player," Johansen is quoted in the Daily Record.
"I'm having a medical and I'll be really happy if everything works out.
"Celtic are a very big club. They're leading the Scottish Premiership and play in the Champions League. That's the big attraction for me.
"I'll try to do my best for the club and improve my game here. I'm a passing player and Celtic like to play good football so that's why it seemed right for me.
"I'm really happy to be here. There's always a chance something could go wrong but I'm hopeful everything can be sorted out."
