Kiko CasillaLiverpool have offered Kiko Casilla the chance to join them from Espanyol in January, according to reports from Fichajes.

The Reds are known to be in the market for a new goalkeeper, with Brendan Rodgers having grown concerned by Simon Mignolet’s alarming dip in form.

Victor Valdes was mooted as their top target, but the former Barcelona man look to be edging towards a free move to Manchester United amid a dispute surrounding personal terms and a trial to assess his injured knee on Merseyside.

Now reports suggest that the club have indeed turned to Casilla.

Liverpool are understood to have offered the Spaniard the No. 1 role at Anfield to lure him across to England from his homeland.

Espanyol are rumoured to be willing to sell for around £8m, with the club outside of La Liga financial elite.
