The Italian midfielder has joined The Bhoys for pre-season training and figured in the friendlies against Peterborough United and Queens Park Rangers.
Capone scored in Sunday's 5-1 win at QPR and could be given a seat on the plane for Celtic's trip to the United States.
Strachan was impressed with the former Cagliari player's showing at Loftus Road and is now assessing the merits of signing Capone.
"Andrea was part of a good team performance and he did his chances no harm at all," said Strachan in the Daily Record.
"What I have to ask myself is what benefit Andrea will bring to the squad.
"All the players got plus marks for the performances they put in against QPR and it was great for the new signings to find out what it means to be part of this club."
