Reds eye Uruguay keeper

Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera could be the subject of a £15million January bid from Liverpool.

The Uruguay international has been linked with the Reds in the past and fresh reports in Turkey suggest the Premier League club are interested in landing the 29-year-old when the transfer window reopens next month.

Liverpool sent scouts to watch him against Besiktas on December 14 and it is believed boss Jurgen Klopp is looking for a new keeper to put more pressure on current first-choice Simon Mignolet, who continues to be prone to costly mistakes.

Klopp has publicly backed the former Sunderland stopper and he is still expected to be offered a new contract over the winter but, behind the scenes, the German manager is said to be searching for long-term alternatives and Muslera, who has made 182 appearances for Gala since joining them in 2011, is an option.

The Turkish side do not want to lose the keeper but an offer in excess of £15million may persuade them into doing a deal.
