Southampton could lose yet another player to Liverpool. According to The Daily Star, Liverpool want to sign Alex McCarthy this summer.
McCarthy has lost his place to Angus Gunn in Southampton’s starting line-up. And he could be on the move this summer with Liverpool interested.
Liverpool could lose Simon Mignolet this summer. The Belgian stopper is ready to leave with first-team opportunities looking slim.
Alisson Becker has taken the starting role at Anfield and he does not look like being replaced after an impressive debut campaign in England.
McCarthy could be brought in as Mignolet’s replacement and Alisson’s back-up. The once-capped England goalkeeper might be tempted by the lure of European football.
The 29-year-old has experience in the Premier League with more than 60 games under his belt. This appeals to Klopp, who also wants to improve his homegrown quota.
Southampton have been regularly raided by Liverpool in the past. Several players have taken the journey from the south coast to Merseyside, including Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Virgil Van Dijk, as well as many more.
Here are some tweets from Southampton fans discussing McCarthy’s links with Liverpool.
