It has been reported that Celtic and Brendan Rodgers are considering making a bold move to sign a free agent in

order to begin their summer transfer window.

Joe Hart saying goodbye to Celtic

Joe Hart will play his last game of professional football this weekend as Celtic take on Rangers in the Scottish Cup

final. The ex-England goalkeeper revealed back in February that he would be hanging up his gloves at the end of the

season, and could yet still crown his swansong with a domestic double in Celtic colours.

Despite early skepticism about his appointment, Hart soon won over Celtic Park’s fans. He was visibly moved when

his team defeated St Mirren to win the Scottish Premiership trophy and bid the Celtic faithful farewell.

The hunt to replace him is already well underway, with a whole host of shot-stoppers having been linked with the vacancy in Glasgow. Now though, a new name has entered the fray, and it may be the most ambitious target yet.

Celtic eye up free agent

That comes courtesy of The Daily Mail, who report that the Bhoys are throwing their hat in the ring for Koen

Casteels, whose £66,000-per-week contract with Wolfsburg ends this summer.

After making almost 250 appearances for Wolfsburg, the left-footed goalkeeper is eager to move on to a new

challenge and has already discussed a possible return to Belgium with Anderlecht. While the Pro League team cannot

provide the Belgian international Champions League football, Celtic is eager to oblige.

Additionally, according to The Mail, the Hoops have added Casteels “to a list of potential replacements” that also

includes Ugurcan Cakir, Asmir Begovic, and Alex McCarthy.

Though Casteels may be a different kind of goalie, his 2021 performances were so good that his manager, Mark van

Bommel, compared him to Manuel Neuer as the finest goalkeeper in the German first flight.
