Liverpool planning shock move for 20-year-old promising goalkeeper

Merseyside giants are reportedly interested in signing Bayern Munich shot-stopper Christian Fruchtl. U20 German international joined the Bavarians youth team in 2014 and has been a regular for the reserve team since 2017. This campaign, Christian has played 23 matches, keeping clean sheets.

Reds are interested in signing Fruchtl as a backup option for Alisson and have inquired about him. Liverpool already have a suitable backup option in Adrian who produced some excellent displays in the Brazilian’s absence. The Reds also have Caoimhin Kelleher who did fairly well in the EFL and Andy Lonergan.

However, there’s an opportunity the latter could leave the club after the end of the campaign when his deal expires. In that case, if Reds do look for a keeper, they could try to rope in Fruchtl and Bayern may not mind letting go of him as they already have the likes of Sven Ulreich, Hofmann and later, Alexander Nubel as backups for Manuel Neuer.

Liverpool have fantastic consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are leading the table. Merseyside giants signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Harvey Elliott from Fulham, Sepp van den Berg from Zwolle, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian and English shot-stopper Andy Lonergan.

Reds also added Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg this January. The English club heavily linked with RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish, Wolves winger Adama Traore, Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz, Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, PSG star Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
