It’s been evidently clear since the departure of Pepe Reina that Liverpool has needed a world-class goalkeeper. Both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have proved themselves to be average from the get-go. But in the UEFA Champions League Final, the latter showed that he was never fit to wear the Liverpool shirt in the first place. If the Reds are ever to progress under Jurgen Klopp, a new keeper is of the utmost importance this summer.
Here are 5 goalkeepers that Liverpool should aim to sign in the summer.
Can you believe that Gianluigi Donnarumma is only 19 years old and has played over 100 times for the iconic AC Milan? The youngster has literally raised the bar for all young keepers, proving once again that age doesn’t matter if you’re good enough.
Although the most valuable asset in Milan’s current squad, the Italian has had several run-ins with the fans and club owners. His reluctance to sign a new contract left a bad taste in the mouths of all parties involved. Now it’s time for the 19-year-old to put that all behind him and garner the spotlight his talent deserves, in the English Premier League.
