Liverpool are said to be considering a move for Anderlecht goalkeeper Bart Vibruggen, which could see Kauwemehen Keeler offloaded.
The Reds currently sit 10th in the Premier League and looked like a shadow of their former selves, prompting the club to undertake major overhauls over the summer. Liverpool’s problems lie largely in the middle of the park, with their current options in this department lacking quality and not getting any younger.
Although the Anfield team appears to be planning a shake-up in other departments, including between the sticks. According to The Sun, Liverpool want to sign young Dutch goalkeeper Verbruggen and put him at the top of their shopping list.
The 20-year-old has impressed in the Belgian Pro League this season, quickly becoming Anderlecht’s number 1 despite only making his second appearance for the club on Boxing Day. Liverpool have reportedly sent scouts to watch Verbruggen’s progress recently and feel he is an ideal candidate to succeed Alisson in the future.
The Reds fear Keeler, the current second choice, will leave the club this summer, after putting himself on the map when he moved to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The Republic of Ireland international shone upon being called up, playing a key part in Liverpool’s successes in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup last season.
Kelleher is said to be keen on playing more regular football, and could suit all sides if he was moved for a younger substitute to enter the frame. However, former England international Paul Robinson believes the 24-year-old should only be relegated if he desperately wants to leave.
