Celtic have checked on the availability of Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson ahead of deadline day, The Scottish Sun reports.
The paper says that the English Premier League champions are still looking for a permanent move for the player, but attempts to sell him have, to date, fallen through.
That leaves a loan as a potential option and Celtic could be seen as the perfect place for him to showcase his talents.
The Bhoys landing Wilson would be an undoubted coup considering his profile and apparent value.
Andy Jones, Burnley reporter for The Athletic, reported last week the reason his switch to Turf Moor fell through was that Liverpool wanted a massive £20m for him.
Understand Burnley have pulled out of talks with Liverpool to sign Harry Wilson. Clubs had been in discussions over possible deal after bid of £12m+£4m add-ons made last week. Believed Liverpool wanted a package rising to near £20m with at least £15m guaranteed. #twitterclarets

Wilson, who is capable of playing on both flanks as an attacking winger, has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Derby County and Bournemouth.
He scored an impressive 18 goals at the Rams in 2018/19 and netting seven in the Premier League last term with the Cherries.
As another option alongside James Forrest and Mohamed Elyounoussi, his arrival would mean we have an excellent unit of wingers for our ten-in-a-row push.
This is far from a concrete move or a done deal, but it’s an exciting little nugget to think of as we approach tonight’s deadline, which is midnight in Scotland.
Celtic have already had a successful transfer window.
First-team contenders Shane Duffy, Mohamed Elyounoussi, David Turnbull, Vasilis Barkas and Albian Ajeti, have all arrived and Diego Laxalt looks to be on the way too.
However, can the club pull one last diamond deal out of the bag?
