Liverpool FC writer Neil Jones has experienced his say on Caoimhin Kelleher’s transfer circumstance this summer months in the newest version of his unique CaughtOffside column.
The Liverpool backup goalkeeper could surely be playing often for other clubs in the Premier League, acquiring demonstrated himself to be a really dependable second decision for Jurgen Klopp in recent periods.
It looks not likely that Kelleher is going to split previous Alisson into Liverpool’s beginning line up any time before long, so it will be attention-grabbing to see what takes place with him this summer season, with Jones admitting that it is not yet hunting notably concrete in any particular course.
Jones admits it could be dangerous to bank loan Kelleher out, but he’s also played down hyperlinks with a move to Tottenham, although he admitted he’s mindful of previous fascination from Leicester Town and Southampton, who have the two now been relegated from the Leading League to the Championship.
“There’s also Caoimhin Kelleher, who alongside with Phillips appears like an clear candidate to offer, but as of still there’s not been any progress there,” Jones said.
“I was a little bit sceptical of inbound links with Tottenham before in the summer time as it would be a massive leap for him to change a World Cup winner like Hugo Lloris. Kelleher has good means, don’t get me completely wrong, he’s a fantastic goalkeeper, but he’s only performed anything like 25 game titles in his job, so it would be a enormous leap up for him, except they had been signing him as a backup.
“I know in the past that Leicester looked at Kelleher, and another relegated aspect, Southampton, that also seemed at him just before they signed Gavin Bazunu, who’s also trying to keep Kelleher out of the Republic of Ireland staff.
“Brentford might be value keeping an eye on as they could glance to indicator a new goalkeeper this summer season, as they facial area getting rid of David Raya, but it’s also truly worth remembering that Jurgen Klopp has stated it would just take an incredible present for Kelleher to leave – a bank loan offer could be performed, but that could also be dangerous from Liverpool’s issue of perspective.”
