Date published: Wednesday 2nd May 2018 2:52 - Oli Fisher

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly performed a stunning U-turn on his goalkeeping intentions for next season.

Widespread reports have suggested that Klopp is eyeing a new No.1 ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, with Roma star Alisson the most seriously linked.

The German coach is apparently not convinced by either Loris Karious or Simon Mignolet and believes Liverpool need an upgrade between the sticks.

The Anfield club were also linked with a move for Real Madrid starter Keylor Navas, though Klopp was allegedly reluctant to pursue him.

However, according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, the former Dortmund boss has changed his mind and is now open to making a summer move for Navas.

The Costa Rica international was in sensational form on Tuesday night he helped Real through to a third consecutive Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

Now, Los Blancos are reportedly considering whether to include Navas as part of their bid to land £200m-rated Liverpool sensation Mo Salah.

The report does however claim that the Reds would much rather do the deals separately.
