Liverpool are reportedly keen on Hull City's David Marshall.

Liverpool may need a new goalkeeper this summer, and Hull City stopper David Marshall is a target according to Alan Nixon in The Scottish Sun.

Marshall, 34, is out of contract at Hull this summer, and looks set to move on, just like fellow Scot Allan McGregor did in 2018.

 

Marshall's impressive displays in the Championship will spark interest in his signature, but few could have expected Liverpool to be in the mix.

However, Nixon claims that Liverpool have pencilled in a deal for Marshall, believing that he can come in to strengthen Jurgen Klopp's goalkeeping options.

The Reds splashed out on Alisson last summer, but with the Daily Star reporting that Simon Mignolet will be leaving for £15million this summer, a new backup will be needed.

With Caoimhin Kelleher tipped for a bright future, bringing in a veteran like Marshall may be ideal, whilst the young Irishman develops behind Marshall and Alisson.

On a free transfer, Marshall fits the bill, but whether Liverpool wait until Mignolet's exit has been completed to do a deal remains to be seen.
