The fallout from Saturday night’s disappointing 3 – 1 defeat to Real Madrid continues at Liverpool with moves for a new goalkeeper stepped up after Loris Karius’ disastrous evening.

And according to a Daily Mirror report, the Reds are tracking two 25-year-old highly-rated custodians to solve their problems.

Long-standing target Alisson Becker of Roma remains Jurgen Klopp’s first choice, but the Liverpool hierarchy face a struggle to bring the Giallorossi to the negotiating table before the World Cup finals.

The club from the Eternal City hopes the Brazilian enhances his reputation in Russia with the national team, allowing them to extort more money from Liverpool.

However, the Merseyside club has alternatives lined up. Chief among them is Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, who is high on Arsenal’s wanted list as well. With the Slovenian refusing to commit his future to the Rojiblancos, Liverpool are monitoring his situation closely.

The 25-year-old starred for Atletico as they lifted the Europa League, including an impressive display at the Emirates as Diego Simeone’s men fought back to draw 1 – 1 with Arsenal.

Meanwhile, reports in Italy claim Gianluigi Donnarumma, 18, is attracting Liverpool’s attention as his relationship with the Rossoneri’s fans deteriorated to such a point where there were few interested parties in his shirt at the end of the season.

The only certainty in all this is the unfortunate Karius has probably played his last game for Liverpool.
