In the 2021/22 season, Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher started in the League Cup final and scored the winner with a goal of his own after a penalty shootout.
Although he spends most of his time on the bench in place of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker, he brings stability to the defense with his calm and composed play on the pitch.
However, at 25 years of age, he cannot be left smoldering as a backup. Interest from Premier League clubs such as Brighton and Brentford was reported during the transfer window last summer, but he ended up staying at Anfield.
According to Football Insider, Scottish powerhouse club Celtic are keen on the Irish goalkeeper, who is also said to be interested in a move, and will attempt to acquire him as a top priority among other goalkeepers.
With the contract of their steadfast number one, former England goalkeeper Joe Hart, about to expire, they are on the lookout for his successor. Brendan Rodgers, who also once managed Liverpool, is also highly impressed with the Irish goalkeeper’s abilities.
The newspaper also reports that he is demanding 20 million pounds this winter, which is too expensive for Celtic, and they are not interested in acquiring him during January this year.
The battle for the player is expected to get into full swing this summer. Will the Irish goalkeeper move to a club where he can play regularly every week?
