Liverpool ‘step up interest’ in World Cup winning keeper to replace Simon Mignolet

Lorius Karius appears to have won Jurgen Klopp's trust at Anfield but German is still thought to be seeking new No1

LIVERPOOL have stepped up their interest in former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas, according to reports in Spain.

The 2010 World Cup-winner, 36, will leave Porto when his contract runs out at the end of the campaign.

The Reds hammered Porto 5-0 when they met at the Estadio Dragao for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.

Casillas didn’t play in the match, but did come back into the side for the return at Anfield and kept a clean sheet as the sides drew 0-0.

Jurgen Klopp has had issues with his goalkeepers since moving to Anfield in 2015, yet appears to have found a solution in Loris Karius.

The former Mainz stopper has become the established No 1 for Liverpool, with Simon Mignolet as back-up.

However, despite his improvement, the German is still guilty of reckless mistakes, such as wiping out Wilfried Zaha to give away a penalty against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Klopp is expected to make signing a new goalkeeper his main priority this summer.

Liverpool are one of a number of sides interested in signing Roma’s impressive stopper Alisson.
