After failing to secure a move away from Southampton over the summer, Celtic have been encouraged to consider a move for Fraser Forster.
Charlie Nicholas has recently suggested that the keeper should make his way back up to Scotland after falling out of favour in the Premier League.
Even if it was only on an initial loan, you can imagine it would be an expensive deal for the Hoops to pull off.
The rumours have divided opinions between some fans on social media, but a lot seem to believe he could be a good addition to the squad.

Any deal to re-sign Forster would surely be a matter of money. The player is said to be on a hefty wage at Southampton, so some agreement would have to be reached in that respect.
However, after seeing Kieran Tierney leave the club this summer, the money is surely there to bring in another goalkeeper if required.
You’d imagine that Forster himself would be desperate for a return if it was a realistic option. He has fallen out of favour completely at Southampton and has no hope of receiving much if any game time this season in the Premier League.
Bain’s performance on Tuesday night was not one that enthused fans with much confidence going forward. It looks like once again Neil Lennon has a decision to make in between the sticks.
Whether it be recalling Gordon or pursuing a deal for Forster, it doesn’t look like we’ve heard the last of Celtic’s goalkeeping problems.
