Ian Wright’s blunt response when asked if Liverpool FC should sign 34-year-old
The Arsenal legend doesn't believe Claudio Bravo would improve Liverpool FC's options in goal
Ian Wright doesn’t believe Manchester City reserve goalkeeper Claudio Bravo would be a good Liverpool FC signing.
The Reds have failed to strengthen their goalkeeping options over the past 12 months despite the obvious weak link in their team.
Simon Mignolet, who was signed by Jurgen Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers, has struggled to find consistency in the Liverpool FC goal since his move from Sunderland in 2013.
The German head coach brought in former Manchester City youth goalkeeper Loris Karius in a £5m deal from his former Bundesliga club Mainz 05 in 2006.
However, Karius has looked decidedly nervous when called upon to replace Mignolet in the Liverpool FC goal.
Klopp didn’t sign a new goalkeeper in the January transfer window despite the Reds conceded four times in losses to Swansea City and West Brom.
Asked whether Bravo could be the answer for Liverpool FC, Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Absolutely not – unless he is playing at right-back.”
The Chile international has fallen behind Eduardo in the pecking order after a difficult first season in the Premier League.
Liverpool FC are the only Premier League team to have beaten leaders Manchester City this season after a 4-3 win at Anfield in January.
The Reds are looking to finish in the Premier League’s top four in successive seasons.
