Celtic have shown interest in several top goalkeepers 

Caoimhin Kelleher

Rumours about the club being keen on Caoimhin Kelleher of Liverpool have been around for some time. This is still a possible signing for Celtic as it looks like the player might be eyeing a move away from Anfield in search of a starting role.

He has done well there this past season though so his transfer fee is likely to have risen and it'll take a substantial figure to sign him. It may very well be beyond what Celtic want to shell out for a goalkeeper or any individual player for that matter.

Ugurcan Cakir

Celtic's interest in Turkish international Ugurcan Cakir has been reported as being quite serious. Certainly, he looks experienced enough having played European and international football. But then Vasilis Barkas' signing looked good on paper too.

Altay Bayindir 

Altay Bayindir is the cover goalkeeper at Manchester United and has emerged as a candidate for the Hoops. He has eight caps for Turkey but has gotten very little game time for the Premier League giants after signing from Fenerbahce last year for a transfer fee believed to be around £4.3 million.

Koen Casteels 

This Belgian international keeper with eight caps is expected to be their number one at Euro 2024. He has spent a long time at Wolfsburg but has also featured in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim.

Casteels is available on a free transfer and at 31 years of age, in his prime as a goalkeeper. He could be what Celtic need but there has been speculation that the Belgian could be headed elsewhere.

Arijanet Muric

The Hoops are also believed to be keeping tabs on Burnley's Arijanet Muric. He hasn't featured much for the club this season but helped in winning them promotion to the Premier League in the prior campaign.

Muric came through the ranks at Manchester City and it will likely take a transfer fee around £10 million to sign him as Burnley head back down to the Championship. That might be too steep a figure for someone of his experience, even though he has a ton of potential.
