Angus Gunn would be a brilliant signing for Celtic.
The Manchester City goalkeeper has flourished on loan for Norwich City this season and is ready to take the next step in a hugely promising career.
According The Sun, Celtic are firmly in the hunt to sign Gunn on either a permanent or loan deal as they look for long-term replacements for Craig Gordon.
The Hoops number one, 35, is back in training after months on the sidelines but his fitness is said to be a concern and the club are on the lookout for at least one new keeper, with Dorus De Vries also at the winter stage of his playing career.
Celtic need to be quick off the mark to recruit a shot-stopper who can be a bedrock of the team for the next decade.
Gunn, the son of ex-Scotland and Norwich keeper Bryan, has the credentials to be a Hoops sensation.
Prised from Norwich by City at the age of 15, he has learned his trade at the Premier League champions-elect alongside some of the best young players in world football.
Gunn has thrived on loan back at Norwich this season, starting all 38 of their Championship matches in a remarkably consistent run in what is his first taste of senior football.
The 6ft 4in keeper has proved to be a commanding presence, demonstrating sharp reflexes to pull of crucial saves as well as dealing well with long balls and aerial challenges.
Celtic must overcome interest from Stoke City and Norwich, who are open to another loan, as well as negotiate a deal with Man City.
With the carrot of European football and one of the most passionate fanbases in Europe, the Hoops have plenty to offer Gunn.
In return, his skill set and immense promise make him a hugely exciting prospect. What a signing he could be.
In other Celtic news, it has been revealed today that the Scottish champions have launched a bid to sign the a brilliant English Championship player who is out of contract this summer.
