Celtic remain ‘active’ in Dominik Livakovic pursuit, according to Turkish source

Well this one has turned into a right saga. After it looked all but certain that Croatian international, Dominik Livakovic would be singing for Turkish side Fenerbahce, it would now appear that the deal is still stalling and that the Hoops remain in the hunt for the shot-stopper.

Celtic are scouting the marketplace this summer transfer window for a goalkeeper to compete and potentially usurp Joe Hart. Brendan Rodgers has apparently marked down another keeper after taking over the reins at Celtic Park. Neither Scott Bain nor Benjamin Seigrist appear up to the job and having lost Conor Hazard, the goalkeeping situation is dire if Hart is injured.

Transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, had revealed last week that the deal to take the Dinamo Zagreb ‘keeper to Turkey had been signed and sealed; however, it has now come to light that the deal has stalled for some reason, meaning the Bhoys could still have a slim chance of hijacking the agreement between Fener and the Croatian side.

According to Turkish journalist, Ahmet Konanc, the Hoops are ‘still active’ in thr race for the 28-year-old’s signature and that the Turkish giants are also in contact with PSG goalkeeper, Keylor Navas at present. Presumably Navas is their contingency plan, should this road-bump derail the entire move for Livakovic in the coming days.

Still all to play for by the looks of it…

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
