Jamie Carragher was asked in no uncertain terms what Premier League player he’d sign for Liverpool in a dream world, and responded by naming Manchester United’s brilliant keeper David de Gea.
The 26-year-old Spaniard is one of the world’s great stoppers and is undeniably the best in England.
Earlier in the season, his wonder-stop from Coutinho’s long-range effort earned his side a point at Anfield and cost Liverpool two.
“I’d go for David De Gea. He’s one of the top goalkeepers in the world. He can play with his feet, and Jurgen Klopp likes that. He’s been the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, and he’d suit Liverpool,” Carragher told Sky Sports in a live Facebook video feed.
Sadly, Liverpool signing De Gea is impossible, which Carragher obviously recognises.
“Unfortunately, there’s more chance of me supporting Man Utd than De Gea signing for Liverpool,” he added.
Loris Karius had a nightmare against Bournemouth on Sunday, at fault for two of the Cherries’ four goals.
His understudy Simon Mignolet has been making mistakes for years and is unlikely our long-term option either, so Liverpool do have somewhat of a keeper conundrum right now.
Klopp has to decide whether to take Karius out of the firing line temporarily and bring the Belgian back for West Ham’s visit to Anfield next weekend, or remain loyal to his summer signing.
