Lukasz Zaluska insists he would welcome the opportunity to compete with Artur Boruc for Celtic's No.1 jersey.
The Dundee United keeper is set to move to Parkhead over the summer after signing a pre-contract agreement with the Hoops in December.
He has been signed with the intention of providing competition for fellow Pole Boruc.
However, speculation continues to suggest that Celtic's current first choice shot-stopper could be on the move once the transfer window re-opens.
Zaluska accepts a Boruc departure would pave the way for him into the Hoops' first team, but claims he is hoping for the opportunity to work alongside his compatriot.
"I am aware that there is a lot of interest in Artur right now and he may not be at Celtic next season," he said in the Herald.
"His future will be determined in the coming weeks. If he leaves, it could mean I will have a much better chance to make myself the No.1 at my new club.
"But I'll also be happy if he stays as he is a good friend and a great guy. I will enjoy the competition and I won't complain or sulk if I'm not the automatic first choice. I'll co-operate whatever happens because the club's success is the main thing.
"I'm sure that friendly competition would help both of us and we will support each other. We've known each other for a long time and we get on well, so it's not a problem.
"Besides, at a club like Celtic there are an awful lot of matches to play in. You have the league, the Scottish Cup, the League Cup and European games and the club must compete on every front. I believe we can both play and get enough matches under our belts.
"For now, though, I'm just looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates for pre-season training and, hopefully, everything will go well."
Meanwhile, the agent of Champions League winner Sylvinho has claimed Celtic are likely to miss out on his signature following Gordon Strachan's departure as manager.
The Barcelona full-back, who will become a free agent this summer, had previously expressed an interest in a move to Scotland, but is now set to listen to offers from elsewhere.
