According to the Daily Star, Liverpool are ready to try and sign Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy this summer.

The Reds head into the new season as European Champions but they desperately want to win the Premier League after missing out by a point.

Jurgen Klopp may want to shake his squad up with that in mind, then, and we could well see McCarthy come in this summer in order to challenge Alisson.

According to the report, the Reds were looking at the Saints’ stopper last summer but once Alisson arrived they decided to leave it.

With Simon Mignolet potentially heading out of the door this window, they could well reignite their interest in Southampton’s number 1.

McCarthy forced his way into the side under Ralph Hasenhuttl at St Mary’s last year, and evidently impressed not just those at the club but those further afield at Anfield.

Will he want to move to play second fiddle, though?
