2. Andriy Lunin

The second option for Celtic to replace Joe Hart in the summer is Andriy Lunin, currently playing for Real Madrid.

He's getting a good run-out in the first team of late, with Thibaut Courtois out injured since the start of the season. He is arguably more proven than Kelleher and his value is likely to skyrocket between now and the end of the season if he continues to impress, especially in the Champions League. However, he's an option for Celtic nonetheless.

Like Kelleher, Celtic have been interested in signing Lunin for a long time. On the off-chance that finances allow for the move to happen, there is no better time to bring him to Parkhead, with the retirement of Hart coming up.

When Courtois returns from injury, it will be the best time to assess whether the Spanish side would be open to parting with Lunin. After all, having spent years stuck as the number two, the player surely would not want to return to the same spot, having gotten a taste of what it is like to be a starter for a top club.
