Klopp wants to Snap up £89million Ex Benfica Star for Liverpool

Liverpool have got a lot of funds to invest now that they have sold Coutinho to Barcelona and Klopp must spend wisely.

The Reds needed to strengthen their back line and they have already lured Van Dijk this month. The Merseysiders are also looking to sign a new goalie because the likes of Karius and Mignolet have been inconsistent.

Two days back, Independent reported that Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak would be an ideal signing for Liverpool but other top clubs are also interested in him. In such a scenario, the Reds have also targeted Roma’s Alisson.

As far as the Slovenian international is concerned, Don Balon have talked about the reports in the English media and claimed that with PSG and other top clubs looking to sign the shot stopper, it is highly unlikely that he will head to Liverpool.

However, the Spanish source have mentioned that Klopp will still try to snap up the 25-year-old star, who is one of the best goalies in the world.

The former Benfica star kept 22 clean sheets in 26 appearances for the Portuguese side before moving to Atletico Madrid in 2014. This season, in 18 league games under Simeone, he has only conceded 8 goals and kept 11 clean sheets.

Oblak’s current contract with the Rojiblancos will expire in 2021 and it has a huge clause (AS) of 100 million euros (£89million).

    That’s music to my ears as a top club like Liverpool should have a top goalkeeper. Why should a club of this stature be satisfied with the second best when they can have the best. I am no fan of our current two keepers.

      Liverpool, a top club? A so-called TOP club perhaps? Top clubs do not repeatedly sell its best players. Liverpool did – from Torres to Suarez and to – more recently – Coutinho.
