24-year-old told he’s not part of Klopp’s long-term plans at Anfield; free to leave this summer – report

Posted by

Many expect that Liverpool are set to endure a long summer of transfer business and one man that could be sold in order to finance possible incoming deals, looks to have been shown the door by Jurgen Klopp.

As reported by Football Insider: ‘The Reds are willing to listen to offers for the 24-year-old shot-stopper this summer, with Jurgen Klopp no longer considering him as part of his long-term plans at Anfield’.

Caoimhin Kelleher has never managed to force his way past Alisson Becker and into our starting line-up, something that nobody would expect the youngster to do either.

His performances in the domestic cups last season showed everyone that we have a very talented stopper on our books but he simply isn’t given enough time on the pitch that his talent and performances warrant.

Our No.1 is one of the greatest in world football and so there wouldn’t be anyone who could take his spot in our goal – something the young Irishman will be very aware of.

As we look to raise funds for the possible signing of Jude Bellingham and other midfielders this summer, then perhaps allowing our No.62 the chance to go and start his own senior career would be the best move for all parties.

We would expect a decent fee for his services and also be in the knowledge that the ‘keeper could go on to prove that he was the right man for our goal but just simply at the wrong time.

  1. Very misleading report and I am surprised it was used as such. The lad is an excellent keeper and highly rated by Jurgen, but he can’t offer him much first team football so he is allowing him to find a club where he can play regularly. To say he has no place Jurgen’s long term plans is not the same at all.

    1. Out of interest how many young liverpool youngsters go on to have top level careers..genuinely interested because I don’t think we have as many as we seem to think let alone goalkeepers who I can only think of off the top of my head the Hungarian lad at red bull?

  2. We should be building our squad by having two world class keepers.who does he go to one of the top 6 clubs fighting for a top 4 spot as we may well be. What happens if Allison gets a 3 month injury. We have seen our problems when V.Van Dyke missed a full season. Look at this season our midfield living on crumbs after letting v good midfielders go on run out contracts. Our American owners should cough up a few bob and keep our better assets

  3. Do people just think off this stuff to write or dream of it when they are in bed sleeping not is really until klopp comes out and says it people do anything for likes now a days my god

  4. Silly season has started early. A talented keeper Klopp would love to keep, but he wants first team football, which barring injury he will not get. He will be one of several exits. Hopefully, there will be a few good ones coming in. In Klopp we trust.

  5. Klopp loves this goal keeper but at this moment in time or for the next 3 or 4 years he’s not going to be No 1 at Liverpool and Klopp wants him to be a number One so we will put a buy back clause in while he proves his worth elsewhere 👍🏻

  6. Caoimhin is a quality keeper. Much better than Pickford who is England’s No. 1. As a backup he is probably the World’s best Please add a buy back clause into any contract we sign or at the very least a massive %age of any sell on fee.

  7. Keller is a great Goalkeeper. Likely to make less unforced errors than Allison. Also a better reflex saver. He must not be let go. Don’t know why Klopp does not rotate our 2 Goalkeepers as its often done by Man City.

  8. Disaster if we let this good goalie leave. What is wrong with Klopp for not giving kelleher playing time for crying out loud. Rotate him with Allison and let Allison stop his howler as usual.

    If he leaves , tell me, is it the basket Spaniard we will rely on…….come on…someone should tell Klopp to stop this huge joke.

    We don’t want Bellingham, he is too expensive for what he plays. Search for good midfielders with decent fee, not another overrated Englishman. Is Sancho not enough script to guide us, why spend over a 100m bucks on an English, it has never worked. No hate intended here. Grealish is another one…
