Celtic could be handed major cash boost for priority target

Celtic are determined to land a deal for Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher this summer after making him their priority target to replace the retired Joe Hart. The Reds’ No.2 has been looking for a move away from Anfield for some time now to pursue the starting role he craves.

Celtic are especially keen on landing a deal for the Irishman but recent reports have claimed that they could be priced out of a move. Liverpool have valued Kelleher at £15 million, which would require the Hoops to splash a record transfer fee on the shot-stopper. Their current record remains the £9 million they pair for Odsonne Edouard but the club may have been handed a significant boost in their push for Kelleher.

A number of clubs are eyeing up a summer move for former Celtic star Jeremie Frimpong, who has a £34 million release clause in place. With Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal among others all interested in his signature, the Hoops will benefit from his next move as they are entitled to 30 percent of the fee. With their percentage, Celtic could put a significant amount of money towards their pursuit of Kelleher, which is what the Liverpool Echo is reporting to be the plan of action.

Former Hoops star on Premier League club radar

Another former Celtic star is being targeted by a Premier League side ahead of the summer transfer window. Kieran Tierney, who left Parkhead in 2019 to join Arsenal, looks to be leaving North London permanently.

The defender spent the last season on loan with Real Sociedad but now, according to FootballTransfers, Fulham are ‘ready to move’ for the Scotland international as they prepare to lose Antonee Robinson once the window opens. The Cottagers are willing to let the left-back leave for the right offer and are eyeing Tierney as his potential replacement.

The 27-year-old has fallen out of favour at the Emirates but remains under contract until 2026. Arsenal are reportedly looking for a fee in the region of £15 million in order to sign off on a summer exit. Tierney signed for the Gunners in 2019 on Deadline Day from Celtic in a £25 million move but the North London club are now looking at making a loss on the versatile defender.
