Liverpool have been linked to a move by Sevilla goalkeeper Alfonso Pastor in the past week, and the 20-year-old Spaniard could well prove to be the man to replace Adrián as a substitute for Alisson’s Reds.
According to AS In Spain, both Real Madrid and Liverpool are monitoring the youngster’s contract status at the La Liga club, as his current contract is ready to expire at the end of this season, which means the Merseyside club could sign him on a free transfer next summer.
Pastor only made his debut for Sevilla this week in the Champions League and while it was not a happy occasion for the youngster as they lost 4-0 to Chelsea, it seems that he is still attracting interest.
Signing the young Spaniard next summer could allow Liverpool to outrun Adrian, who has been their backer ever since. Union on a free transfer in the summer of 2019.
Do you agree that Adrian needs to be fired?
He has gone on to make 23 first-team appearances for the Reds, in which he has conceded 35 worrying goals, including nine in just two appearances so far this season, for Transfer market.
Therefore, it is not surprising that a lot of criticism during his time at the Merseyside club, and his performance against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last season is likely to be a real cause of frustration for many Liverpool fans.
The fact that young Caoimhin Kelleher started ahead of Adrian at Liverpool 1-0 win against Ajax recently suggested that Jurgen Klopp is already close to firing the 33-year-old, but the possible signing of Pastor could well seal his departure.
The German manager was full of praise for the former West Ham blocker after appearing in Liverpool’s Super Cup win against Chelsea in 2019, saying:
“He did an incredible performance. Both goalkeepers did it but for Adrián it was more surprising as there was no real preparation. I don’t even know when he last played for West Ham, to be honest.
“It’s so good for him. I don’t think he has won much in his life, so winning this great match is very good for him. In addition, he showed that he is a personality of his own in the dressing room. He was even louder than me at halftime. “
While Adrian may be a great member of the Liverpool locker room, he seems to have made one mistake too many, and if Michael Edwards can hand over Liverpool Pastor next summer, perhaps his nightmare time with the Reds could be over.
