Liverpool want to sign Nick Pope and are set to bid 15m pounds for the Burnley goalkeeper, claims The Sun.
Jurgen Klopp wants to replace current No.1 Loris Karius following his disastrous performance in last month’s Champions League final.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with moves for Atletico Madrid shotstopper Jan Oblak and Roma ace Alisson in the last 12 months but appear to have been priced out of moves for both.
The Merseysiders would be required to shatter the world record fee for a goalkeeper to have a chance of signing either and Liverpool have now reassessed their options.
Liverpool were briefly linked with Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois but now Klopp is ready to move forBurnley star Pope. The 26-year-old has enjoyed a stunning rise to prominence in the last 12 months after moving ahead of Tom Heaton in the pecking order at Turf Moor.
Pope’s stunning form for Burnley last season even resulted in an England call-up for the 2018 World Cup and his first England cap in Thursday’s 2-0 win over Costa Rica.
No Premier League goalkeeper outside the traditional top-six kept more clean sheets than Pope last season (11). Not only that, but only David de Gea (80%) finished the campaign with a better save success rate than Pope (75%).
