Fridjonsson had a successful trial at Lennoxtown earlier this month and the Hoops have tabled a bid, believed to be in the region of £120,000.
Fram are yet to agree the January move, but are confident the switch will be rubber stamped soon.
Fram chairman Sverrir Einarsson told STV: "We have received an offer. We responded to Celtic last night and we are waiting to hear again from them. They are not far away [in terms of the transfer fee].
"I think we are hoping it will happen. It would good for him, Celtic would be a very good club for him.
"He was satisfied himself with the club and he was very happy to be there [when on trial].
"He has potential. He is a special type of player. He is a very good guy and he has his family behind him.
"I would be disappointed if he didn't go all the way in the game. I believe that he will."
The 23-year-old, who has represented Iceland at Under-21 level, scored 12 goals in 23 appearances for Fram in the 2013 season.
