Liverpool signing, Manchester United rejection upsetting Everton, could be perfect free transfer

Liverpool have become famous for taking advantage of deals when they happen in the right place at the right time.

The most recent example is the decision to bring Luis Diaz to the club in January this year. The Colombian international was a target for Liverpool, but the original plan was to wait until the summer to make a move.

However, thanks to interest from Tottenham Hotspur, that plan changed. Jurgen Klopp and company did not want to let one of their main transfer targets get out of hand just because they wanted to wait.

The opportunity to make a deal arose, and Liverpool got over it. Fast-forward a few months, and the Reds may be wise to do something similar once again.

One area where Liverpool have no worries in terms of strength in depth is the goalkeeping department. Alisson Becker is the established number at the club, and it’s a cry worthy of being the best in the world in his position.

Behind him in the pecking order is Caoimhin Kelleher, who is a more than capable backup for the Brazilian. He was a key player in helping Liverpool win the Carabao Cup this season, and would be ready to step in in Alisson’s absence.

However, there have been speculative suggestions that Kelleher could leave Anfield this summer. That has ranged from a loan deal to develop his skills, to a permanent move to become No. 1 elsewhere and get more playing time.

It is highly unlikely that Kelleher will move away from Liverpool permanently this summer, unless, of course, the player expresses his desire to leave. If that were to happen, then Klopp would have to do some thinking.

But the idea of ​​loaning out Kelleher may not be the worst idea in the world, especially when you factor in recent transfer gossip. This worries former Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson.

Nike today officially launched the new Liverpool kit for the 2022/23 season. The clean minimalist design will be the third designed by Nike after it took over New Balance in 2020.

As always, the kit is available in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes which can be found and purchased at the official Liverpool FC club store.

Currently at Watford, Hodgson confirmed on Friday that goalkeeper Ben Foster will leave Vicarage Road as a free agent this summer. There are early indications that the 39-year-old could retire at the end of the season, but he has publicly admitted that he is not sure about his next move.

“I will always keep my head up knowing that I have given absolutely everything that I have,” Foster said. “I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I have to say that Watford will always have a special place in my heart.”

Foster has a history with Liverpool’s biggest rivals, but in different ways. He begins his time at Manchester United, which he joined in 2005. He spent five years at Old Trafford, but only made 23 appearances for the club.

He spent two years on loan at Watford during that time, before leaving Man United for Birmingham City in 2010. Back at Watford, he recently made some comments that upset sections of Everton fans.

“If you can get to the top of Everton’s first gates, Everton fans are horrible to Everton players,” Foster said in his Podcast ‘The Fozcast’ back in February. “They are horrible, they get on top of them. They get into their players’ heads, for sure.”

Asked what it’s like to be an opposition player in that scenario, Foster said: “That’s huge, we always say before the game we’ve got to start fast, we’ve got to get past them.

“We said that before our game at Goodison Park. [earlier this season]They scored after two minutes! We won 5-2, at the end.

“But, yes, we insist on saying it: Everton fans are horrible. If it looks like we’re getting the better of them or something like that, they pick on the Everton players.”

These comments certainly upset much of the Everton fan base. With Foster’s time at Watford drawing to a close, what’s next?

While it may not seem like an obvious decision, Liverpool would be wise to explore the idea of ​​bringing the goalkeeper to Anfield. It would not be the first time that Klopp has brought in an experienced goalkeeper, as he did the same with Adrián in 2019 after the departure of Simon Mignolet.

It all depends on what Liverpool want to do next with Kelleher. Would lending it be the ideal? Klopp and company will have to make a decision about it.

If Liverpool decide that Kelleher would benefit from a loan spell away from Anfield, the club would be wise to entertain the idea of ​​seeing Foster as a short-term option with his experience.
