Thanks to an ill-timed injury to number one Alisson Becker, Liverpool are looking a little light between the sticks right now.
Veteran Spaniard Adrian only joined at the start of August and he very nearly missed a hard-fought 2-1 Premier League win at Southampton thanks to an injury he suffered in a collision with a rather over-excited fan during last week’s Super Cup celebrations.
Andy Lonergan, three years older than Adrian at 35, was sat on the bench at St Mary’s.
But, speaking to NOS, Liverpool goalkeeping coach Achterberg has admitted that the Champions of Europe could now bring in a third free agent shot-stopper in a matter of works.
"The arrival of Vorm has been discussed," he said.
A former Holland international, Vorm was a regular in the Premier League for Swansea and proved to be a reliable deputy to Hugo Lloris at Tottenham for five years.
He has not merely a talented shot-stopper but a fine passer of the ball too, capable of playing the ball out from the back with ease. Don’t expect Vorm to make the sort of calamitous mistake Adrian committed against Southampton on Saturday.
