'Absolutely boss': Liverpool fans go mad about Kamil Grabara's Poland display

Liverpool fans cheer their side on during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on May 12, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Kamil Grabara hasn't made a senior appearance for Liverpool but he deserves a chance in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have been linked with a number of highly-rated goalkeepers from all over Europe in recent weeks.

With Simon Mignolet expected to leave after growing tired of warming the bench at Anfield, speculation suggests that the Champions League winners will make a new back-up shot-stopper a main priority in the transfer window.

But maybe they don’t need a Neil Etheridge or an Alex McCarthy after all.

Kamil Grabara has a chance to prove that he is ready and waiting to make the step up this summer and he is seizing that opportunity with both hands during the U21 European Championships in Italy.

The 20-year-old is firmly established as Poland’s number one at Under 21 level and he is showing why. The Eastern Europeans have picked up two wins from two in the group stage and Grabara’s performance in Wednesday’s 1-0 win against a highly-fancied Italian side certainly got Liverpool fans talking on Twitter.

Grabara made a series of impressive stops to deny arguably the tournament’s most accomplished team while his distribution was excellent too. Clearly, he has learned from Alisson Becker on Merseyside.
