Earlier on this summer, practically at the end of last season actually, Liverpool completed a deal to sign talented German goalkeeper Loris Karius from Mainz.
The 23-year-old came straight into the side during the pre-season friendlies, but unfortunately broke his hand over in America against Chelsea and has missed the start of this campaign as a result. Still, he’s expected back to challenge Simon Mignolet for the no.1 jersey after the international break.
Jurgen Klopp has very high hopes for Karius, and we can’t wait to see him in action.
Still, Jamie Carragher would prefer we brought in another keeper instead of blood Karius, now Joe Hart is on the market.
“Speaking as a Liverpool fan, I would love to see him come to Anfield,” he told the Daily Mail.
“His pedigree as a two-time Premier League winner and 63-cap England international cannot be faulted and he will be a tremendous addition for someone, whether in the Premier League or on the continent.”
Hart’s undeniably been a top Premier League stopper, and a club will be fortunate to have him now that Pep Guardiola has dropped him from Manchester City’s XI and put him up for sale.
But we have two keepers fighting for the spot between the sticks now and don’t need Hart. Perhaps if Karius completely fails to settle and Mignolet continues his poor form we’d be back in the market for another – but not right now.
As it is, we can see Hart moving to Everton – who are probably the biggest club left without an established no.1 in the top flight. The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, United, Leicester, Spurs and ourselves have no need for a stopper.
