The Scottish champions are interested in signing the former Bayern Munich midfielder, either in January or in next year's summer window.
The 21-year-old has impressed at Heidenheim in the German second tier and has caught the attention of Parkhead talent spotters.
Due to a buyout clause in the player's contract, Celtic would only need to pay £3.2 million to land his services.
A number of European sides are also said to be in contention for the player, though it is believed Dorsch would like to see out the remainder of the season in Germany.
