Irish goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher has been a reserve goalkeeper for Liverpool. Although he has started in cup competitions, he has played only a little more than 30 games for the first team and has not been able to get a satisfactory start.
Already 25 years old and approaching the midway point of his career, he has been frequently rumored to be leaving Liverpool in recent years whenever the transfer window opens. Last summer, interest arrived from Scotland, in addition to Premier League sides such as Brighton and Brentford.
As a result, he ended up staying at Anfield, but he may finally make a complete move in this summer’s transfer market. According to Football Insider, the 25-year-old goalkeeper is preparing to leave the club this summer, and Celtic is tracking his movements.
Manager Brendan Rodgers, who has previously been in charge of Liverpool, is looking for a goalkeeper to replace former England goalkeeper Joe Hart and is eyeing the Irish goalkeeper, who has been a consistent performer when he has come on.
Liverpool, who have a contract until June 2026 and are expected to demand a transfer fee of £20 million. In the inflated world of soccer, this is a reasonable fee for a modern keeper who can also participate in ball-turning.
He will be looking to earn his place at club level to become an absolute regular in the Irish national team. Will Kelleher be able to get a full transfer to a club where he can play on the pitch every week?
