Caoimhin Kelleher ready to force Liverpool summer departure

Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher has been linked with a summer move away from the Merseyside club.

According to Football Insider, Caoimhin Kelleher wants to quit Liverpool in search of regular playing time this summer. The 25-year-old Irish goalkeeper is unlikely to start regularly for the Merseyside outfit as long as Alisson Becker is at the club, and he needs to move on.

Kelleher has proven himself with the Liverpool first team during cup games and when Alisson has missed games through injuries. The player has been a reliable goalkeeper for the Reds, and he has the quality to start for top clubs. The Reds will demand around £20-22 million to part ways with him in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Scotland with Celtic in recent months, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. The goalkeeper is valued at around £20-22 million. Liverpool will not want to lose a player of his quality anytime soon. But they could be powerless to stop him from leaving if he decides to push for an exit. They will not want to hold on to an unhappy player.

Liverpool need a Kelleher replacement

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool can bring in a quality backup goalkeeper at the end of the season. The Reds cannot hope to head into the new season with Alisson as the only goalkeeper at the club. They will need a reliable backup option, and recent reports have linked them with Anthony Patterson.

Meanwhile, Kelleher will look to continue his development and fulfil his potential with regular football next season. The 25-year-old cup hero is extremely talented, and he has a bright future ahead of himself. The exit from Liverpool would be ideal for him at this stage of his career, and he should look to join the club where he will get regular first team opportunities.

The Irish goalkeeper joined Liverpool when he was 16 years old, and his contract with them expires next summer. It would be ideal for Liverpool to cash on him if he does not want to commit his long-term future to the club. Losing a player of Kelleher’s quality on a free transfer next year will not be ideal.
