Liverpool are reportedly ready to sell talented young goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher at the end of the season.
A report from Football Insider claims that 24-year-old Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher is likely to be sold by Liverpool in the summer. And the Reds are now open to listening to offers for the young shot-stopper.
Kelleher has been a backup option to Alisson Becker in recent seasons, and he has impressed with his performances in the cup competitions. Despite the fact that he has not started regularly for Liverpool, he has managed to endear himself to the fan base with his match-winning performances in important cup matches.
The 24-year-old has the potential to develop into a top-quality goalkeeper. But he needs to leave Liverpool in order to continue his development.
Kelleher will need regular football at this stage of his career, and he is unlikely to get those opportunities at Liverpool. The 24-year-old has the potential to be a key player for most Premier League clubs, and it remains to be seen where he ends up.
Losing a player of his quality will definitely weaken the Liverpool squad. But they are unlikely to force him to stay. Spanish goalkeeper Adrian will be leaving the club as a free agent as well. And it remains to be seen whether Liverpool decide to bring in a backup keeper at the end of the season.
They cannot hope to go into the new season with Alisson Becker as the only goalkeeping option at their disposal. That said, talented youngster, Marcelo Pitaluga could be promoted as an understudy to the Brazilian international.
As for Kelleher, he will be hoping to join a Premier League club and establish himself as a key starter for them. The goalkeeper has a contract with Liverpool until the summer of 2026 and the Reds will be hoping to fetch a considerable fee for him in the coming months.
The Irish international will be hoping to establish himself as a key player for club and country over the next few years. Staying at Liverpool will be detrimental to his development. So Liverpool’s decision to listen to offers for him will come as a blessing to the player.
