Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon is being lined up for a shock move by Chelsea, report the Scottish Sun.
The Blues reportedly want a replacement for Petr Cech who is expected to leave at the end of the season after a decade at the club.
Crucially he is being lined up as a number two to Thibaut Courtois, which the paper claim Gordon is 'unlikely' to want.
The goalkeeper signed as a free agent with Celtic in the summer after a year out of the game through injury after being released through Sunderland.
He has bounced back to full fitness, reclaiming his Scotland international place, and turning in a superb performance for Celtic away at Inter Milan at the San Siro a week ago in the Europa League, evidence he can still cut it on the big stage.
The chance to move to Chelsea won't be without temptation. He could earn a lucrative contract and test himself in the English Premier League again, while as a number two, he could prolong a career which appeared previously as if it could come to a premature end.
With trophies on the horizon at Celtic this season, Gordon could walk away on a high after just a year.
However moving to a club where his first team spot is not guaranteed, would be harmful to his international prospects, and after losing a year of his career, Gordon appears as though he wants to make up for lost time.
The interest in him says everything about the progress he has made, and is a compliment to the work of Celtic and their staff in their handling of him in helping the stopper get back to his very best.
