Liverpool reportedly interested in Sevilla goalkeeper Alfonso Pastor
Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Alfonso Pastor from Sevilla.
According to a report from AS, the Reds and Real Madrid are both keen on the 20-year-old, who featured for his club in the 4-0 Champions League defeat against Chelsea last night.
Pastor has a contract until next summer at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, suggesting he could be available for a cut-price fee next month.
Liverpool of course, are in a situation where they need to think about a new goalkeeper, with Adrian’s contract expiring next summer.
The 33-year-old has had an up and down time on Merseyside and, despite there supposedly being an option to extend his contract by another year, it seems unlikely at this point that he’ll stay at the club beyond next summer.
Against Ajax on Tuesday, 22-year-old Caiomhin Kelleher was preferred to the veteran, suggesting Klopp may no longer fully trust him.
TBR’s View – One to keep an eye on
He probably won’t feature too much for Sevilla this season, with Moroccan international Bono established as the number one, but his name is worth listening out for for Liverpool fans.
A lot of fans are not convinced by Adrian, and the more chances Kelleher gets, the likelier the Spaniard’s exit next summer will be.
