Liverpool have not made a bid for Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, according to a report by i News.
There have been rumours swirling that the Reds have bid £13 million to land the 23-year-old stopper, but the report says that’s not true.
Apparently, sources at Anfield and the player say talk of a bid is wide of the mark and Liverpool feel they have enough goalkeeping cover to get them through this season.
They reportedly instead to go into next term with Alisson and Adrian as his deputy, with youngster Caoimhin Kelleher also in the ranks too.
Loris Karius is also out on loan at Besiktas until the summer and could return to the fold, meaning Jurgen Klopp apparently doesn’t want a new stopper.
TBR’s View – Unsurprising that Klopp doesn’t want a new stopper
Alisson has been as good as any goalkeeper in the world since he signed for Liverpool.
And Adrian stepped in admirably for the Brazilian when he was injured at the start of the season, at a time when the Reds’ title bid could have been derailed early on.
Cakir seems like a promising young goalkeeper, but if he moves he’ll likely want gametime and that’s not something Liverpool can offer right now.
Klopp may need to gently evolve his squad in the summer – as all successful managers must – but there are no issues between the sticks.
