Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian is close to signing for the club as a replacement for Simon Mignolet, who is heading for Club Brugge.
The Spanish stopper is currently a free agent after leaving the Hammers following the end of last season, in which he made just two appearances in the FA Cup and none in the Premier League after Lukasz Fabianski’s arrival.
The Champions League winners have been forced into the market after reluctantly accepting Belgium international Mignolet’s request to leave, as he had made clear to Jurgen Klopp that he no longer wanted to be Alisson’s deputy – the Reds have recouped an initial £6m from the 31-year-old’s exit.
Adrian had some good moments during his six years with the Irons – notably knocking Everton out of the FA Cup with the winning penalty in a shootout – and should be a solid, dependable figure to rely on as No.2 behind Alisson.
Let’s take a look at how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted to the news…
