Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern will be crying out for the club to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer, and could well see their side turn to an unlikely target.
The Reds have been linked with the likes of Alisson Becker and Jan Oblak over the course of the past couple of months, yet moves for those two appear to be fairly unlikely at the moment, with the transfer fee required seemingly causing manager Jurgen Klopp a headache.
However, according to reports in The Daily Mirror, the Anfield outfit may have found the solution to their question closer to home with Burnley’s Nick Pope.
The goalkeeper has impressed at Turf Moor since replacing Tom Heaton and deservedly got a place in England’s World Cup squad.
Liverpool are thought to be keen on the 26-year-old and believe the shot-stopper could be the answer they have been looking for to replace Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet. And the Reds are reportedly set to up the ante in pursuit of the shot-stopper by monitoring him further, as they look to build their information about him through background checks.
And this update is likely to intrigue our resident Reds fans, as it appears that Klopp is closing in on trying to solve the long-term issue between the sticks at Anfield.
Landlord’s Verdict: Although Burnley are expected to fight any possible departure with much resistance, especially following their qualification to the Europa League, Liverpool could find that he his a cheaper and proven option for the Premier League than others to have been linked.
The locals in the Tavern will want to see a new shot-stopper added to the squad this summer, and Pope would certainly make a number of the residents feel more at ease when it comes to watching their side be on the defensive.
