The phrase ‘lost in translation’ comes to mind after the latest story surrounding Liverpool’s possible search for a new shot-stopper.
Keylor Navas has drifted on and off the radar as far as potential targets are concerned, and is looking increasingly likely to leave Real Madrid this summer.
With the La Liga giants threatening signs of launching a mass revamp in response to their disappointing league campaign, Navas could see his no.1 spot come under serious threat.
The Costa Rican, having grown to be frustrated by uncertainty over his future, has told Cristiano Ronaldo he deems Anfield as his preferred destination, according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol. Convenient, that. Make of it what you will.
Navas will undoubtedly be inundated with offers if he does find himself on the market, but it seems likely Liverpool will look elsewhere.
Jurgen Klopp’s inevitable gander for a Simon Mignolet replacement could start with Roma’s Alisson Becker, who appears to top the Liverpool manager’s wishlist of shot-stoppers.
The Brazilian has been in superb form in Serie A this season and quickly built a reputation for himself as one of Europe’s rising stars between the sticks.
His hefty price-tag is believed to have put Liverpool off for now, although that may be due to their current priority of monitoring Loris Karius and his progress over the final months of the season.
Back to Madrid, Navas isn’t the first player from Zinedine Zidane’s side to force a way onto the Liverpool transfer rumour mill.
Playmaker Dani Ceballos has also been touted as a potential target having become angry with his lack of opportunities at the Bernabéu.
The Spaniard has been identified as one of the names Klopp could be lining up to fill the Philippe Coutinho-shaped void on Merseyside – one that is admittedly yet to have harmed the Reds.
