Liverpool are set to close a deal for goalkeeper Adrian, report The Times.
The Spaniard will replace Simon Mignolet, who has been sold to Club Brugges.
Adrian is a free agent and has six years experience in the Premier League with West Ham.
The Reds are making a shrewd move to bring in a quality back-up who knows the league.
They are doing so at a profit too, gaining around £7 million from the sale of Mignolet.
Its hard to say there is a gap of £7 million in terms of ability between the two goalkeepers.
The move has received a positive reaction, with Adrian seen as a steady pair of hands.
It's good business on and off the pitch and it leaves Liverpool in a strong position.
Alisson will be the club's clear first choice, but Adrian is a good number two goalkeeper for Liverpool to have at their disposal.
Here is a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the reports...
Adrian is decent backup. Farewell, Mignolet. I know he was very calamity prone, but he was a great shot stopper. Good luck at Club Brugge #lfc— CrazyPoliticUS (@CrazyPoliticUS) August 5, 2019
Adrian is a perfect signing for Liverpool. No fuss about negotiations with club and matching a fee, can be done easily before Friday. Perfect signing. #LFC— Abhishek Krishnan (@Abhi9715) August 5, 2019
Adrian set to replace Mignolet. Good back up keeper, had some great games for West Ham.#LFC— All Things LFC (@AllThingsLFC6) August 5, 2019
Another Edwards Masterclass getting 7 Mill plus add ons for Mignolet then signing Adrian on a free. #LFC— The Scouse Foodie (@SalilG_LFC) August 5, 2019
Wow our big signing is free agent Adrian. I rated him higher than Mingolet but that was about 3 seasons ago. #LFC— BobbyKlopp (@BobbyKlopp) August 5, 2019
Always rated Adrian since he was at West Ham, a decent shot stopper ,a poor man's De Gea, should provide good back up to Alisson and is a good option for Penalty Shootouts. #LFC— The Scouse Foodie (@SalilG_LFC) August 5, 2019
Quite happy with Adrian as Mignolet’s replacement. Decent backup keeper. Would quite like another attacking signing before the window closes though please #LFC— David Holmes (@DaveHolmes1985) August 5, 2019
