Reds 'held keeper talks before CL final'

Reports suggest that Liverpool held talks about recruiting a new goalkeeper before Loris Karius's Champions League blunders.

Liverpool reportedly held talks about signing a new goalkeeper to replace Loris Karius before the Champions League final.

The Reds have been strongly tipped to recruit another stopper this summer after two blunders from the German cost them dearly in their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev.

According to Zbirna, however, the club's hierarchy held discussions about replacing Karius with a new recruit at the team hotel on the eve of the final.

Roma's Alisson is said to be Liverpool's top choice to take over in goal, but the reports from the Ukraine suggest the Reds have also held talks with Zorya Luhansk about their highly-rated keeper Andriy Lunin.

The 19-year-old, who has also been linked with Serie A runners-up Napoli, is reportedly on Liverpool's radar as potential backup to Alisson.
