Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are said to be still on the observation post for another shot-stopper this summer transfer market after Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker picked up a calf injury in the first match of the season.
The club had already brought the experience of Adrian to replace the Belgian star Simon Mignolet but an injury scare and less than convincing performances by the new arrival has set the alarm bells ringing.
Now, Reds goalkeeping coach John Achterberg has confirmed that they’re looking to add free agent Michel Vorm to their roster this month. Speaking to a Dutch outfit NOS, Achterberg said: “The arrival of Vorm has been discussed.”
The 35-year-old star was introduced to English football by Swansea City, where the Dutchman spent three long years as the first-choice goalkeeper.
He made 89 top-flight matches for the club before Tottenham Hotspur came calling back in 2014. Vorm was added to Mauricio Pochettino’s team as a backup to the French star Hugo Lloris and only got his chances in cup games.
In his time in London, Vorm made just 13 Premier League appearances, covering for Hugo’s injuries and at the end of the last campaign, he became a free agent with the expiration of his deal.
The Reds have one of the best goalkeepers in Europe in Alisson in their ranks. The Brazilian star will remain Klopp’s first choice when fit and Michel is only touted as an option to cover for the Spaniard in the absence of the Brazilian.
