Liverpool backup goalkeeper overshadowed by Alisson, raises Tottenham-Brentford transfer speculation

By Hyojong Cho= Liverpool goalkeeper Quivin Kellerher could leave the club this summer, according to reports. Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford have been mentioned as possible destinations.

Global sports publication The Athletic reported the transfer speculation on Wednesday (Aug. 23), stating that “Kellerher could leave in search of a chance to become a first-choice goalkeeper.”

The Irish goalkeeper came through Liverpool’s youth ranks to join the senior side. He’s a valuable resource for the Reds, but hasn’t seen much playing time with Alisson Becker, one of the best goalkeepers in the league, holding down the fort. 스포츠토토 The 25-year-old has made just four EPL appearances so far this year. This season, he’s made just three first-team appearances in cup competitions.

The Reds are keen to keep Kellerher, as they believe it will be difficult to find a backup goalkeeper of his caliber. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp recently said that it would take a special offer to keep Keller.

However, if the player is in his prime and wants a new challenge, it is unlikely that Liverpool will block a move. With their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season looking slim, the Reds could look to offload Kellerher as a non-fringe player and reap the benefits of a transfer fee.

“While no formal offers have been made, there has been interest in Kellerher from across Europe, including Tottenham and Brentford,” The Athletic recently reported.

Tottenham and Brentford are two of the clubs that could see their first-choice goalkeepers leave this summer. Spurs are expected to lose Hugo Lloris at the end of the season after 11 seasons with the club. While they are looking at a number of goalkeepers, Kellerher, who is young and relatively cheap, could be a potential successor to Yoris. Brentford have one year left on the contract of first-choice goalkeeper David Lallana. Laya has also been linked to Tottenham, so he and Kellerher could be on the move in quick succession.

Kellerher’s weakness is his lack of first-team experience, but he has been impressive when he has been on the pitch. He is particularly good at saving penalties. In 28 first-team appearances, including penalty shootouts, Kellerher has made seven saves. His save percentage is above the average of 16%. He also shares time in goal with Southampton’s Gavin Bazunu for the Republic of Ireland.
