Liverpool prepared to cool interest in Gazzaniga due to Kelleher form

Liverpool have been impressed by Caoimhín Kelleher over the last couple weeks and are ready to cool their interest in Paulo Gazzaniga as a replacement for Adrian, according to Anfield Central sources.

We were exclusively told earlier this season that Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards had identified Spurs backup goalkeeper as an option to replace the failing Adrian in net.

The Spaniard repeatedly made costly errors in goal while he was covering for Alisson but with Caoimhín Kelleher proving to be a capable and assured option in net, Anfield Central sources have been informed that Liverpool are prepared to cool their interest in Gazzaniga.

The Irish goalkeeper was dropped on Sunday for Alisson, with the Brazilian returning to fitness but Kelleher’s three back-to-back starts have done wonders for the future of his career at Liverpool.

Where Adrian’s panicked passing unsettles the Liverpool defenders in front of him, his younger teammate’s borderline cocky approach to playing out from the back has left fans and coaching staff alike hugely impressed.

Kelleher’s stock has shot up in the last two weeks and it’s a sign of how quickly things can change in football as before his Champions League debut against Ajax Amsterdam, the 22-year-old conceded six in goal for the Liverpool Academy against Wigan Athletic.

Liverpool, unfortunately, slipped up against Fulham, dropping two points as the Londoners held the Merseysiders to a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage.
