The German has probably changed his mind by now, since a couple of goalkeepers seemingly find themselves on Liverpool’s radar.
Lopez linked to Reds
Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez could make a move to Anfield this January, as reports in Italy suggest that Liverpool have gotten a heads-up from Lopez’s current team AC Milan to sign the Spaniard. As AC Milan look to sponsor a move for midfielder Axel Witsel, Lopez could be shown the exit route.
The 34-year-old is still one of the best shot-stoppers in Europe and it’s no surprise that Klopp has shown interest in him.
Fernando Muslera to Liverpool?
According to The Mirror, Liverpool FC are also keeping an eye on Fernando Muslera, who is undergoing much scrutiny from the Turkish media. Klopp is reportedly ready to shell out A?15 million for the 29-year-old.
With David de Gea’s future at Manchester United not certain, Muslera has also been targeted by Red Devils and they are lining up a A?35 million bid for the Uruguay International. If United do so, they are sure to beat their Merseyside rivals to Muslera.

If Liverpool do sign a keeper, he would probably just be a borderline-plus for the Reds.
