Liverpool managed to seal a top four finish on the final day of the 2016-17 Premier League season with a 3-0 win over Middlesbrough. Now Jurgen Klopp is expected to spend a lot of money in the summer as he prepares his team for the Champions League next season and one of the key areas Liverpool will have to work on is their goalkeeping situation.
At the start of the season Klopp signed Loris Karius and made him their number one choice keeper but the German was not able to adapt to the Premier League.
After a number of inconsistent performances, Klopp decided to bring back Simon Mignolet in goal and while the Belgian proved to be a better choice for now, Klopp still does not seem to be convinced with either of them.
Apart from signing a number of outfield players to balance his squad for next season, Klopp is also looking to sign an experienced goalkeeper who he can rely on and more importantly he wants someone with experience particularly in the Champions League and who better that Iker Casillas.
The Spaniard is expected to leave Porto this summer and reports say that Casillas has a number of offers from clubs in the Premier League, China and Turkey but the Spaniard believes that the offer he has from Liverpool is the most "solid" and some reports suggest that he could have already signed a pre-contract with the Reds.
If Liverpool were to sign Casillas he would definitely be considered one of the signings of the season solely for all the experience he would bring to the club.
The former Real Madrid man has played 175 times in the Champions League for Los Blancos and Porto and is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world. While he might not be a long term solution as he is already 36, his addition to the squad will certainly be a big boost to their title chances next season.
While he has not won any trophies in his two years in Portugal, Casillas did win 18 trophies with Real Madrid and there is no one better to have in goal at the moment. Right now it's still too early to tell what might happen, but if Casillas were to move to Anfield, Klopp's goalkeeping problems would definitely be solved at least for the next two years.
