Celtic have once again been linked with a stunning move for Croatia No1 Dominik Livakovic.

And reports in Turkey claim the Hoops have had a £7.6million bid ACCEPTED by Fenerbahce for the outstanding shotstopper. Livakovic was on the Parkhead club's radar last year as he entered the final year of his contract at Dinamo Zagreb but eventually sealed a £7m switch to Turkey with Fenerbahce.

Now, reports emerging from Istanbul claim that Livakovic has told the Turkish giants that he wants to leave after just 12 months at the club. And Fotomac claims that Celtic have had a big-money offer accepted for the 29-year-old, suggesting that an official announcement will be made "shortly."

The media outlet states that Jose Mourinho has already found a successor for the unsettled goalkeeper, with Juventus star Mattia Perin his top target for next season. Brendan Rodgers made it clear last month that he wants a first-choice goalkeeper in the door as quickly as possible to replace the recently retired Joe Hart.

The Scottish champions currently have Scott Bain and Ben Siegrist on the books, but the latter is expected to move on this summer after making just a handful of appearances since joining from Dundee United two years ago.
