Danny Murphy suggested on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (December 21) that Liverpool need a player of the same class as Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Simon Mignolet is the first-choice Liverpool goalkeeper at the moment, while Adam Bogdan is his deputy.
"Let’s not beat around the bush," said former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Murphy. "Let’s not be diplomatic. Mignolet or Bogdan are not good enough.
"Lloris helped Tottenham get that win (against Southampton on Saturday) and I have seen that so many times. He is a fantastic goalkeeper who makes very good saves at the right time. Liverpool don’t have that."
Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and is arguably the only world-class player in the current Tottenham squad.
The France international has been in good form for Spurs so far this season and has played a key role in their challenge for a top-four finish in the league.
Mignolet is not in the same league as Lloris and has made more mistakes than he should have since joining Liverpool from Sunderland in the summer of 2013.
For Liverpool to challenge for the top four next season, they need to sign a better and more capable goalkeeper in the summer.
