As reported by The Mirror, Liverpool are interested in signing Zorya Luhansk goalkeeper Andriy Lunin this summer.
In the first half of the season the goalkeeping position at Liverpool was a real concern for supporters with neither Simon Mignolet nor Loris Karius looking convincing between the sticks at Anfield.
However, Karius’ form and consistency dramatically improved, making the search for a replacement this summer less urgent.
Nonetheless, adding depth to the position would be smart business from the club and it seems they’re on the hunt for a new third choice.
The Mirror report that the Reds want to sign Ukrainian teenager Andriy Lunin, who is already an established regular in the country’s top-flight with Zorya Luhansk.
The paper say he is highly-rated in his homeland and fancies a move to England, with Liverpool competing with Leicester and Watford for his signature.
Despite being 19 years of age, Lunin has already amassed impressive experience for his age, appearing regularly in the Ukrainian Premier League, featuring for his side in the UEFA Europa League and even winning a senior international cap.
For club and country he’s already made 60 career appearances since making his debut for former side Dnipro last season.
It’s experience and a consistent selection that demonstrates what a talent he is and he clearly has the kind of potential that would interest a top European side like Liverpool.
Securing his signature at an early age could be a great bit of business down the line for the Reds, who can also rely on the player to be a decent third option behind the likes of Karius and Mignolet.
