The Galicians have secured the 24-year-old on a season-long loan deal but are hoping to try and thrash out a permanent transfer.
Lequi knows the Spanish game well having spent the 2003-04 campaign at Atletico Madrid where he impressed greatly.
A move to Lazio followed, but he failed to settle in Serie A and made just four appearances for the Roman club last term.
Celta are delighted to have secured his services and will now look to sign him permanently.
"We have an agreement with Lazio for the loan but we still have to negotiate a permanent deal, if we can do that tomorrow (Thursday), good, if not we have him for the rest of the year," Celta president Horacio Gomez stated.
