In short, no.

A goal kick is not complete (the ball in not yet in play) until the whole of the ball crosses the whole of the penalty area line and into the field of play. If the goalkeeper touches the ball before it completely leaves the penalty area, the goal kick must be retaken. If the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hands after the ball has left the penalty area and become "in-play", then he is guilty of a handling infraction because the ball is not within the keeper's own penalty area anymore. Either the ball is still in the penalty area or it isn't; it can't be both.

This is all without even considering the fact that a goalkeeper cannot handle a ball that has been intentionally kicked to him by a teammate, the so-called "pass-back" rule.

They are given when a defender passes the ball with his feet (his head or chest don't count for this rule) to his goalkeeper and the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hand or arm. The ball is placed where it was at that time (inside or outside the penalty box, not necessarily on the penalty spot), and the attacking team must make a pass before shooting. Walls must be at least 9.15 metres away from the ball (and at most on the goal line) and can contain any number of defensive players.
