Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp ready to sign new goalkeeper, Reds have shortlist

The German was at fault for two goals as Real Madrid won 3-1 in Kiev to lift their third consecutive Champions League.

And according to the Daily Mirror, the Reds will now intensify their search for a new No 1 at Anfield.

They say Roma’s Alisson and Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid top Jurgen Klopp’s wishlist this summer.

The Mirror add that Klopp wanted to give Karius a chance to impress, however, his performance in Kiev ended his chances of being Liverpool’s long-term No 1.

Liverpool have been monitoring Alisson all season, while the Reds would have to break the bank for Oblak.

The Slovenia international has an £80m release clause in his current Atletico deal.

The Mirror also say that Cologne No 1 Timo Horn and Southampton’s Alex McCarthy could also be potential alternatives for the Reds this summer.

Simon Mignolet is also set to leave Anfield this summer, especially if Klopp lands a new goalkeeper in the coming weeks.

On his horror show in the Champions League final, Karius wrote on Instagram: “I haven’t really slept until now.

“I know I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down The scenes are still running through my head again and again.

“I’m infinitely sorry to my team-mates, for you fans, and for all the staff.

“I’d just like to turn back the time but that’s not possible. It’s even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time.

“Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game.

“I don’t take that for granted and once again it showed me what a big family we are. Thank you and we will come back stronger.”
