Celtic remain keen on Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez as they desperately attempt to strengthen their options in goal.

The Scottish champions were poised to fly the Spaniard to Scotland on Sunday – but his current loan club Getafe kept him in Spain.

In what is a transfer triangle, the La Liga side will only let Martinez leave if they manage to keep hold of Vicente Guaita.

But Guaita has already agreed a pre-contract with Crystal Palace and could sign a permanent deal in January if the clubs can agree a fee.

If they retain the services of their No.1, Getafe will let Martinez go but Leeds are also interested.

The complex nature of the deal saw Celtic go cold on the 25-year-old – and prompted Brendan Rodgers to move for Motherwell’s Trevor Carson.
