Liverpool supporters have been making a lot of noise in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side record a third win in the space of a week by battering West Ham 4-1 at the London Stadium, a result which moved them up to fifth in the Premier League table.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with the East London outfit off the back of beating Huddersfield Town and Maribor, and first half goals from Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip set them on their way to another three points. Manuel Lanzini did get one back for the hosts ten minutes after the break, yet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first Premier League goal of the campaign restored their two-goal cushion almost immediately, before Salah netted his second and Liverpool’s fourth 15 minutes from time to complete the rout.

Nonetheless, there is plenty going on to occupy those Liverpool fans lining up at the bar, not least a recent report from Diario Gol (via The Daily Star) which suggests that top-flight rivals Arsenal have joined the race for Real Madrid shot-stopper Keylor Navas, a reported target of the Reds.
The 30-year-old moved to the Spanish capital back in 2014 and has since gone on to play over 100 games for the club, helping them to the La Liga and Champions League titles last season, as well as the latter the year before.
Yet his future may well be away from the Bernabeu and as such both Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly eyeing up a move, but here are TWO other goalkeepers the Reds could target should they miss out on a move for Navas next year…
