Liverpool monitor Burnley's Nick Pope

Liverpool are looking closely at Nick Pope, with the England shot-stopper seen as better value for money than Alisson and Jack Butland.

It is clear that Liverpool will sign a new goalkeeper this summer but there is some doubt over the role he will play with the Reds.

Loris Karius’ Champions League final nightmare means that Jürgen Klopp could bring in a new no.1 and demote the German or sign a back-up and keep faith with the former Mainz goalie.

According to the Mirror’s Adrien Kajumba, a series of background checks have been carried out to ascertain what kind of personality and mentality Nick Pope has ahead of a potential £18million move to Anfield.

After becoming a Premier League no.1 and England international in just seven years after playing at Bury Town in 2011, Liverpool want some assurances over his character.

That said, although Alisson and Jack Butland would cost £70m and £30m respectively, the Reds cannot afford to take the cheaper route and hope it works out.

If the former can be bought for £70m, then Liverpool should move for him as he would make an enormous impact on Klopp’s backline.
