Liverpool could look to Ireland to solve their long standing goalkeeping problem after Jurgen Klopp sent goalkeeping coach John Achterberg to watch Shamrock Rover's stopper Gavin Bazunu last Friday.

The 16-year-old kept his third clean sheet in a row against Derry City and is highly thought of in England, with several clubs, including Celtic, Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion taking the youngster on trial.


Bazunu has made the number one jersey his own at the Tallaght Stadium as of late, and despite the return of veteran stopper Alan Mannus to the club, manager Stephen Bradley has said that the 36-year-old will have to fight it out with Bazunu to get back in the first team:

There is going to be a fight in training with those two.

It’s Gavin’s jersey, Gavin has come in, he’s played three games, kept clean sheets, can’t ask for any more.

Alan is ready to go, he’ll be ­registered for next week but I’d play Gavin anywhere, I think he’s earned that, yeah.

Alan is a top pro, he’s seen the kid play, he knows what he’s about.

Should Bazunu move to Liverpool he will join fellow countryman Caoimhin Kelleher at the club. The 19-year-old joined the Reds in 2015, and manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken highly of the Cork native in the past.

In other Liverpool goalkeeper news Adam Bogdan has joined Scottish side Hibernian on loan. The former Bolton keeper has only made six appearances for the club since joining in 2015. The 30-year-old Hungarian suffered an ACL injury in November 2016 during and has failed to make a competitive appearance since. Gavin Bazunu
