Liverpool are leading the chase to sign Iker Casillas this summer, according to reports in Spain.
With a Champions League campaign on the horizon, Jurgen Klopp is on the look-out for an established No.1 who can be relied upon on the big stage.
Casillas left Real Madrid to join Porto in summer of 2015, but seems set to move on this summer.
And AS report he has been inundated with offers, but Liverpool’s looks the most appealing to the experienced goalkeeper and he may have already signed a pre-contract.
The 36-year-old also has offers from clubs in Turkey as well lucrative proposals from Qatar and the Chinese Super League.
Neither Simon Mignolet nor Loris Karius have done enough to inspire confidence they are long-term options in the Liverpool goal.
A 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough on the final day of the season ensured the Reds would be in the Champions League play-offs for next season.
And there is no one with more experience in Europe’s premier competition than Casillas.
The 36-year-old has won the tournament on three occasions and is the record appearance maker with 175.
He moved to Porto two years after winning the Champions League with Real Madrid for the third time — 14 years after his first triumph.
A second consecutive second-place finish behind Benfica in the Primeira Liga means he will end his time in Portugal without a major trophy.
