Caoimhin Kelleher has proven to be a strong backup option to Liverpool number one Alisson – however, he may be set to leave the club in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to a report by TalkSPORT.
A solid goalkeeper, Kelleher is in no danger of ever unseating the legendary Brazilian – due to this, if he wishes to play regular first-team football, he must seek out a move away from the club. Despite this, Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp has stated that it would take an ‘extraordinary’ offer for the club to consider letting him go.
Several clubs in the Premier League have reportedly registered an interest in the 24-year-old Irishman – let’s take a look at which teams want to bring him on board.
Who is interested in Caoimhin Kelleher?
Among the clubs interested in introducing Kelleher to their setups include Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford. Liverpool are keen to hang on to Kelleher, but they are also unwilling to give him the first-team football that he craves.
Of these three, Spurs stand out as the frontrunners to secure Kelleher’s signature. The North London outfit have something of a crisis in the goalkeeping department – captain Hugo Lloris has performed well below par this season, while backup option Fraser Forster has been likewise unimpressive.
