Celtic make their first move to sign a free agent, and Chris Sutton is optimistic ...

Celtic are interested in signing with Benjamin Siegrist and have now reached an agreement with his representatives.

The Bhoys have yet to reach an agreement this summer, but they will be on the lookout for reinforcements.

Vasilis Barkas was sent to Utrecht earlier this week, meaning the Celtics'' goalkeeping ranks have been weakened somewhat even if the Greek international wasnt a regular.

Ange Postecoglou may now be interested in assisting Joe Hart and Scott Bain, while Siegrist is the top goalkeeper.

Celtic are interested in Benjamin Siegrist

On Tuesday night, reports of the Celtics renewing interest in signing Siegrist.

Celtic were able to sign Siegrist for free on a free transfer, according to the Daily Mail, since his contract with Dundee United has come to an end.

Celtic have already increased their support for the Swiss goalkeeper, according to the Daily Record.

Preston North End and Blackpool are reportedly keen on Siegrist, but Celtic are now pushing for a deal.

Celtic scouts have watched Siegrist for a long time, and the Bhoys are making their move.

After a 2018 move from Vaduz, the former Aston Villa stopper became a fan favorite at Tannadice.

Chris Sutton, a pundit and former Celtic player, has been praised as a superb performance.

With the Bhoys making their move, Sutton might end up seeing goalkeeper Siegrist wearing a Hoops shirt shortly.

Preston or Blackpool may be able to offer Siegrist a first-choice position, but Celtics'' biggest selling points are Champions League action and a title challenge.

Even if he would have to compete with Joe Hart for playing time, these are appealing to any player. Siegrist will certainly take the Bhoys approach into account.
