Liverpool are thought to be interested in signing Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer, according to German newspaper Bild.
The 29-year-old starred for Switzerland in their 1-1 draw with Brazil at World Cup a few days ago and showed exactly why he could be on Jürgen Klopp’s radar.
The report from Bild suggests that Sommer would cost the Reds roughly €30million (£26.3m), with his current club Borussia Mönchengladbach in no rush to sell.
The shot-stopper is under contract with the Bundesliga side until 2021, which puts them on the front foot in regards to any potential negotiations.
Sommer came through the FC Basel academy and played two seasons with Liverpool superstar Mo Salah before departing for Germany in 2014.
He cost Mönchengladbach £8.1million and was signed as a replacement for Marc-André ter Stegen, who joined Barcelona in the same transfer window.
The 29-year-old has been a regular in Germany’s top-flight and has made 130 Bundesliga appearances to date.
Lastly, the report finishes by suggesting that Liverpool still have an interest in both Allison Becker and Jan Oblak, but that Sommer could be a good third-choice candidate if the Reds can’t acquire either of their top two targets.
