According to The Express, Brendan Rodgers is keeping tabs on the availability of Iker Casillas as there are still question marks on whether or not the Valdes deal will go through.
The deal can only go ahead on one condition and that is depending on if the former Barcelona keeper can prove his fitness after suffering a horrific injury last season.
Punters in the tavern believe it is about time Rodgers considered a replacement for Simon Mignolet whose performances this season have become under heavy scrutiny.
The Reds boss is showing his intent and desperation to sign a replacement as he is already thinking of a plan B with Casillas in mind should the Valdes switch not materialise.
Casillas’ selection in Real Madrid’s first team isn’t as certain as it once was and Carlo Ancelotti brought Costa Rican international Keylor Navas to the Bernabeu this summer.
Liverpool will hope to capitalise on the World Cup winners’ uncertain situation but he also has had his critics over the summer after he had a torrid time at the World Cup.
