This season has been pretty good for Liverpool. The magic performer Mohamed Salah put Liverpool in the Champions League finals but unfortunately their goalkeeper Loris Karius’ performance cost the Reds a Championship tie after he successively conceded goals. Now they are desperate to sign a new goalkeeper ASAP this summer.
According to sources, Liverpool is getting rid of both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius during the transfer window and are looking for a number of suitable replacements.
Earlier Jurgen Klopp claimed that his eye is on AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma and Alisson Becker of AC Roma.
But according to the Sun on Sunday, Jürgen Klopp has his eyes on Burnley’s keeper Nick Pope now and he could be the next Liverpool goalkeeper.
According to the report, Pope is being targeted for more than just his premier league experience, also because of his base price.
Pope is available for the base price of just £15m, and that’s a too good deal for Liverpool to turn down.
The 26 years old Nick Pope has a good on-field record for Burnley in the absence of Tom Heaton and has been currently associated with England’s squad preparing for the FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia.
Pope still has 2 years contract left with Burnley as he joined in 2016 and has the contract until the 2019-20 season.
His recent performance with his club and his recent call up for England’s National squad have attracted Liverpool’s eyes towards him.
Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is also targeted by Klopp but Pope is more suitable and affordable option with Roma asking for £70m for their prized possession.
