How Jurgen Klopp stopped move for star player

It has been revealed that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp turned down the advances from AGF Aarhus for the signature of Reds goalkeeper Kamil Grabara in the last summer transfer window.

AGF Aarhus sporting director Peter Christiansen made this revelation when he stated that the German manager replied by saying a NO to the request for the player.

However, a deal finally fell through in the last January winter transfer window on a loan deal until the end of the season.

It is understood that the reason for why the Reds team changed their mind to keep hold of Kamil Grabara in the first attempt was as a result of the injury sustained by Simon Mignolet which made it necessary for the 20-year-old to stay back.

Other Liverpool goalkeepers Loris Karius has already been loaned out to Turkish outfit Besikta while Danny Ward has already been sold to Leicester City.

However, Kamil Grabara will now have an opportunity to have a taste and experience of a first team football which cannot be handed him at the Reds team.

The Reds have, therefore, secured Alisson Becker in the last summer window from Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma who has sealed his position in the Reds gaol post.
