According to a report from the Sun, Arsenal are targeting a summer swoop for RB Leipzig stopper Peter Gulacsi, but Liverpool should consider joining the race.

The 27-year-old spent five years with the Reds, before leaving Anfield for RB Salzburg in the summer of 2013, having failed to make a single appearance for the Merseyside outfit.

He then swapped one Red Bull for another, joining Leipzig in the summer of 2015, and during his time in Germany, Gulacsi has really impressed.

Standing at 6ft 3 in tall, the Hungarian possesses an imposing physique, and has showcased his ability to command his penalty area with authority.

Liverpool's problems in the goalkeeping department have been well-documented, with Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius both proving that they are not quite good enough for a club with the Reds' stature.

Gulacsi has demonstrated his unflappable nature in the Bundesliga this season, and he would undoubtedly improve the way in which the Reds defend.

The Hungary international is currently under contract with Leipzig until the summer of 2022, and is valued at just £4.05 million, according to Transfer Markt.

That would represent excellent business for Liverpool, and should be an opportunity that they grasp with both hands.
