Liverpool could bring in David Marshall, according to reports. The 36-year-old would certainly be a surprise.
This comes from the Daily Mail. They claim Liverpool hold an interest in Derby County goalkeeper David Marshall.
Marshall was in the spotlight this summer as he kept goal for Scotland at Euro 2020. Unfortunately, that did mean he was featured in highlights of Patrick Schick lobbing him from 45 yards.
Marshall, 36, is no longer first-choice for the Rams, though. He did play 33 games last season but Kelle Roos appears to be their no.1 this season.
In fact, Marshall is no longer making the bench for Derby. Or at least, he hasn’t been there for their games so far this season.
It’s safe to say he’s available, then, and Liverpool are apparently interested.
David Marshall to Liverpool?
There’s a lot of desire for Liverpool to sign someone to end the transfer window. They’ve only made one addition, after all – Ibrahima Konate back in May.
It would certainly be nice if the club could add a little bit more depth in midfield. Even more so in attack, where Liverpool struggled last season.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be a superstar signing, either. A youngster with good potential would be nice or even just someone to add a different dimension in attack off the bench.
There are things we’ve been hoping for all summer, really. We do understand Liverpool being satisfied with their squad or not seeing value for money out there, though.
What we don’t quite understand is why they’d add a 36-year-old goalkeeper who can’t get a game for Derby. That really is out of nowhere.
Liverpool already have Alisson Becker, Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher, after all. They’re all better players than Marshall – and younger.
Honestly, it’s such a bizarre shout that we instinctively believe it isn’t true. But then, it’s so bizarre we can’t imagine why the Mail would just come up with it out of nowhere.
We’ll wait and see, then. But it’s certainly an out-there shout.
