Reports in Germany claim the 29-year-old keeper has again been earmarked as a potential reinforcement for the Bundesliga giants.

Boruc was linked with a �15m switch to Bayern last year in the wake of his Euro 2008 heroics for Poland. But the Munich outfit now believe a reduced fee of around �7m will be enough to entice Celtic to do business.

Bayern are in the midst of a goalkeeping crisis after horror displays by their first and second-choice shotstoppers ended their European campaign and left their title chances in doubt.

No.1 Michael Rensing let in five goals when the Bavarian club were mauled 5-1 in a top-of-the-table clash at Wolfsburg on April 4.

He was then dropped for veteran Hans-Jorg Butt, who shipped another four against Barcelona four days later when his side were jettisoned out of the Champions League.

Under-pressure Bayern boss Jurgen Klinsmann has hinted his main priority this summer will be to sign a top keeper.

And the German media claim Boruc, Gianluigi Buffon, of Juventus, Fiorentina's Sebastian Frey and Germany No.1 Rene Adler, of Leverkusen, are all being considered.

Klinsmann said: “We will resolve the goalkeeping issue in the summer. But we are not putting a strict time limit on it. In football, nothing is impossible and after the season is over we will have time to make the best decision.”
