The goalkeeper could be an option to replace struggling number one Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool are reportedly once again tracking Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have continued to struggle defensively this season, with current number one Simon Mignolet coming in for criticism.

The Belgian has made several big mistakes over recent months that have begun to erode the faith he had worked hard to earn back after being dropped by former manager Brendan Rodgers.

Number two Adam Bogdan has also been blamed after a costly mistake in the recent 3-0 loss to Watford.

That has led to talk that they may make a move to secure a new goalkeeper in future, with several 'keepers already linked with a potential move.

One of those is Galatasaray star Fernando Muslera with TuttoMercatoWeb claiming that the Reds have set their sights on the Uruguayan.

He would not be a cheap purchase though, with them claiming he could cost as much as €20million, around £14.6milllion.

That would be a big figure for them to spend, with fans sure to be keener to see that type of money being used to improve their forward options given their struggles in that department.
