Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Man City to make Messi bid in January

Celtic tipped to sign 'big name' keeper

Celtic will sign a 'big name' goalkeeper in January should Vasilas Barkas fail to prove himself, claims Alan Hutton.

"They can’t wait, it’s as simple as that, you can’t give somebody a season," Hutton told Football Insider.

"If he doesn’t step up to the plate and soon, I presume in January they will be looking to bring someone in and probably a big name.”

Kepa desperate for loan move

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is willing to take a pay cut to secure a loan move in January, reports The Sun.

The Spaniard's lack of game time at Stamford Bridge has seen him fall down the pecking order for the national team and he's been told to find somewhere to play more minutes.

As such, Kepa is now open to a loan move and is even willing to accept a reduction in his £150,000-per-week salary.

Sarri was sacked by Juventus earlier this year after one season in charge, following one season at Chelsea.
