According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool is preparing for life without Caoimhin Kelleher at Anfield.
According to the transfer insider, the Reds could start looking for a new backup goalkeeper soon.
Kelleher is said to be hoping for more playing time as a regular starter away from Liverpool next season.
Romano also stated that “many clubs” are interested in signing the 24-year-old on loan.
This is subject to Liverpool’s approval to part ways with Kelleher, the Italian added.
Kelleher has been an excellent backup to first-choice Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker in recent years.
In 2020, Alisson was sidelined for a while, and Jurgen Klopp initially replaced him with Adrian.
Later in the season, however, the Liverpool manager gave Kelleher a chance ahead of Adrian.
The Irishman was subsequently relegated to second-choice at Anfield.
Kelleher also assisted Liverpool in winning the League Cup against Chelsea in 2022, converting a penalty himself.
In November of last year, he broke Liverpool’s record for most penalty shootout victories.
His fourth League Cup shutout came against Derby County.
Furthermore, Kelleher has saved the most penalties in a shootout of any Anfield goalkeeper in history.
While it would be unfortunate if he were to leave, it is completely understandable.
He has only played 20 senior games for Liverpool. He’s good enough to be a first-team keeper somewhere else.
Emi Martinez famously left Arsenal for Aston Villa a few years ago, and it wasn’t a bad career move for him.
He went from being second-choice at the Emirates to winning the World Cup and Copa America.
Martinez could beat Villa to the Champions League this year.
Kelleher is unquestionably talented enough to achieve similar success with another Premier League club.
