Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed he is weighing up a renewed bid to bring Norwegian striker Erik Huseklepp to Parkhead.
Lennon was keen on Huseklepp during the January transfer window, but pulled out of a £2million deal due to the fee.
Huseklepp eventually left Brann to join Bari in Italy, but he could be on the move again following the club's relegation from Serie A.
The Bhoys are in the market for attacking reinforcements and have also been linked with Manchester City's Craig Bellamy and former Cardiff City forward Jay Bothroyd.
Though Lennon did not confirm whether he would make a fresh bid for Huseklepp, he acknowledged he is an option for Celtic.
"He's a player we liked the look of at the time," said Lennon. "Talks broke down because they wanted too much money.
"But it's a possibility given Bari's situation. He's just one of the options in the hat."
