Norwich City - managed by former Celtic favourite Peter Grant - are also interested but the Scottish champions are favourites to land Rigters.
Smit told the Daily Record: "I would hope to be in Glasgow on Monday and make a final agreement with Celtic. It is my hope that we can agree a deal soon. If I can´t get into Scotland right away I´ll be there on Tuesday. There are no other clubs involved apart from Norwich but Celtic are way ahead."
