Celtic and Premier League club Stoke City are both interested in Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn, according to the Sun.
The 22 year old is currently on loan at English Championship side Norwich City, and it is believed our interest in the young stopper will be in view to a season long loan next season.
We have also been credited with interest in keeping Scott Bain at the end of the season so it`s difficult to know whether our pursuit of Gunn is genuine or not.
The player is eligible to play for Scotland, with his father Bryan having been capped at senior level. He on the other hand has played for England at youth level so far.
On Twitter, Bhoys fans were pretty hopeful that we could sign him in the summer.
What a signing Angus Gunn would be IMO. Seen him play against Chelsea in the FA cup and he looked quality.

I know some City fans want him as their number two next year but turning down Celtic would be a big ask for any young player when Champions League is on offer. Just look what it`s done for Patrick Roberts` development

Fraser Forster went from a loan at Norwich to Celtic and ended up in the England World Cup squad ahead of Ruddy, who had been playing for a PL Norwich side that season, due to his outstanding CL performances.

I watch every Norwich and Celtic game and the gulf between them is huge. Angus Gunn who’s on loan at Norwich has been linked with Celtic and the amount of Norwich fans who’ve said ‘Why would he take a step down there’ and are being serious is crazy. Kenny McLean been written..

Said we should go for Angus gunn about 6 months ago, celtics relationship with city I can see it happening

Agree with you but a also think he is rated even higher than the other 2.
Moving to Celtic working with Woodsy may alter his own thinking
You never know
Time will tell.

Don`t forget Europe; he won`t get that exposure staying anywhere in England as a backup. Unless Klopp comes to his senses

Gunn is highly rated down south, but we will have to see how things pan out. We can offer him first team football and a chance to play in the Champions League. He may however prefer a regular spot in a Premier League team, although it is not certain that Stoke will remain in the top division next season. If they don`t, we would surely be favourites to capture his signature.
