Liverpool v Chelsea - Premier League
Simon Mignolet could still lose his place as Liverpool's number one

Liverpool's goalkeeping department has easily been one of the most scrutinised areas of the club for the past number of years. Ever since long-serving 'keeper Pepe Reina left and Simon Mignolet came in as his replacement, the Reds have faced criticism from just about every corner of their fan-base, with the Belgian struggling to put in consistent performances and establish himself as the club's number one.

Manager Jurgen Klopp payed £4.7 million to bring German Loris Karius to Merseyside as Mignolet's potential successor but the former Mainz star has struggled to live up to expectations and currently finds himself behind Mignolet on the team-sheet, with rumors continually suggesting that Klopp is seeking yet another shot-stopper to sort out his side's defensive problems.

Should the reports be true, here are three goalkeepers the German boss could look to bring to Anfield.


#1 Alisson

AC Milan v AS Roma - Serie A
Roma goalkeeper Alisson has been linked with a move to Liverpool recently

There has been low-key speculation linking Roma goalkeeper Alisson with a move to Liverpool, recently, and the 25 year-old could be on the move if such reports are to be believed.

The Brazil international would certainly make a decent replacement for Mignolet at the club. He has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Roma and is joint first with Pepe Reina and Samir Handanovic for the most clean sheets in the Italian league (9).

Alisson has been praised for his reflexes and ability to handle shots from close range, as well as a willingness to command his own box - a quality which Mignolet has been criticised for lacking.

Having done business with Roma for the acquisition of forward Mohamed Salah last summer, Liverpool could return to the Serie A side for yet more business.
