Liverpool have turned their attentions to “down under” after actively seeking a new keeper to replace, Belgian, Simon Mignolet.
The Reds have identified Australia shot-stopper, Matthew Ryan as a potential replacement for Mignolet. Ryan is currently on duty with the Socceroos in the Asia Cup. The 22-year-old has impressed for club and country and was named the goalkeeper of the year in Belgium, 2013-2014.
Ryan could join fellow countryman, Brad Jones at the club. However, if Ryan were to join it would leave both Jones and Mignolet’s position at the club in serious doubt.
According to the Express, any deal would be done in the summer as opposed to January, meaning Liverpool will either have to find a temporary replacement or stick with Mignolet for the remainder of the season. A tough decision to make for Brendan Rodgers who has seen his keeper make a host of errors this season alone.
Will Liverpool be looking to add another Australian keeper to the mix?
