Celtic lead the race to sign Liverpool goalie Caoimhin Kelleher

Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has attracted interest from several clubs, with Celtic emerging as one of the potential suitors for a summer move. The Scottish club views Kelleher as a potential replacement for Joe Hart, whose contract with Celtic Park expires at the end of the season.

That is as per the Daily Mail. The Irish shot-stopper has made 11 appearances for the Reds this season. Despite his contributions, it appears that Kelleher‘s future at Anfield does not remain guaranteed, with clubs monitoring his situation ahead of the summer transfer window.

While Celtic sit keen on securing Kelleher’s services, Liverpool would likely demand a fair transfer fee for the goalkeeper if he decides to leave. The 25-year-old has yet to make a decision about his future, and the Reds seem poised to ensure that any potential departure is on mutually agreeable terms.

Kelleher’s rise to prominence has not gone unnoticed, with three Premier League clubs – Brentford, Brighton, and Wolves – reportedly keeping tabs on the goalkeeper’s performances. The interest from top-flight English clubs highlights Kelleher’s growing reputation as a promising shot-stopper.

What next for Kelleher?

Liverpool’s current first-choice goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, has expressed his desire to continue playing at the highest level for another decade. While the Brazilian remains a key figure for the Reds, Kelleher, at 25, may see the upcoming summer as an opportune time to seek regular minutes as a first-choice goalkeeper elsewhere.

The competition for Kelleher’s signature is expected to be intense, given the interest from both domestic and foreign clubs. His potential departure from Liverpool would obviously hinge on securing a role where he can play a more central role in the starting lineup.

For Celtic, Kelleher could represent a valuable addition to their squad, providing stability and talent between the goalposts. However, as negotiations and discussions unfold, Liverpool’s stance on the goalkeeper’s valuation will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of any potential transfer.
