Liverpool are in the race to get another outfield player to replace Loris Karius in the summer after the Belgian fumbled during the previous season.
The Reds are tipped to make a move to sign Roma goalie Alisson in the ongoing transfer window, but they seem to be looking elsewhere as they stand limited chances of beating Real Madrid to his signature.
As a result of their slim chances of luring Alisson to the Anfield Stadium ahead of next season, Liverpool manager has turned his attention to Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope according to the Sun.
The little-known glovesman broke into Burnley’s starting lineup due to an injury picked up by their first-choice goalkeeper Tom Heaton in the second half of last season.
Pope took his chances with both hands as he was lively in his first start for the club, preventing opponents from putting the ball behind him.
Having impressed in his first game, Burnley manager expectedly integrated the Englishman as his undisputed first-choice goalie for the rest of the season.
Nick Pope developed to become one of the best goalies in the League as he only conceded 35 goals in all competitions before the end of the season.
Due to his breath-taking performance, Liverpool boss is now keen on his signature. The British media suggested that Liverpool are considering a £15m offer for his signature.
Though Alisson is more experienced and reliable than Nick Pope, the Burnley goalkeeper appears to be more affordable than his Italian counterpart.
It now depends on Klopp’s decision whether to go for an experienced £70m-rated goalie or to move for inexperience £15m-rated Burnley and England’s third-choice netminder.
