If there is one area that Liverpool need to improve this summer (other than left-back of course) it is between the sticks, with neither of the goalkeepers used this season particularly impressing.

Both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have come under scrutiny and even manager Juergen Klopp does not seem to have decided which is his first choice.

This may be why Spanish newspaper AS are reporting that Iker Casillas is being considered by the Reds, with the 36-year-old out of contract this summer following two years with FC Porto.

Casillas is a legend of the game, winning five La Liga titles, three Champions League trophies, two European Championships and the World Cup, among other things.

However, after falling out of favour at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu the stopper left for Porto in the summer of 2015, but found his first year in Portugal difficult.

Yet this season Casillas has rediscovered his form and has decided to extend his playing career. So what do Liverpool fans think about the prospect of the Spaniard coming to Anfield?
