Liverpool target huge January move to solve goalkeeping crisis

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing former Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas in the January transfer window.

The 36-year-old is currently playing for FC Porto, but the Portuguese club could be willing to let the Spain legend leave in January in a bid to lighten their wage bill.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is still looking for a first-choice keeper, with neither Loris Karius nor Simon Mignolet impressing between the sticks.

Indeed, Mignolet had a shocker in the 4-1 Premier League defeat at Tottenham last weekend and Klopp is said to have lost patience with both his main stoppers.

Spanish publication El Pais reports that Newcastle are also keeping an eye on one of the best goalkeepers in the modern era, but that Liverpool would be the player’s first choice if indeed he does move in the New Year.
