Liverpool got themselves back in the Champions League last season after a successful campaign under Jurgen Klopp yielded just the result the club wanted come season end.
The Reds will be hoping to build on last season’s success with even better performances in the 2017/18 season, but the Liverpool fans here in the Tavern know that they need to add new faces to the squad if they are to compete on all fronts.
Our landlord has been getting the downlow off the Reds faithful around who the club should be looking to bring in, and one thing they all agree on, is that Liverpool need a new goalkeeper.
The man who the Reds fans have been talking about? Current Atletico Madrid stopper Jan Oblak, who has become one of the most sought after goalkeepers on the continent due to his consistent performances over the last few years.
Oblak has played a key role in the success of Diego Simeone and the red half of Madrid, and his name has been touted around for moves to some of Europe’s big clubs when his time at Atletico comes to an end.
Liverpool would be wise to spend big on Oblak, with their goalkeeping department often coming under scrutiny. Oblak offers a safe pair of hands, an assured presence in the box, and crucially, experience of the top level at Champions League and international level.
Reds fans, what do you think? Would Oblak solve the ‘keeper issue? Let us know your thoughts!
