Liverpool FC are considering a transfer move to sign Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Premium Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Reds are keen on a move to land the 40-year-old as Jurgen Klopp looks for a new goalkeeper this summer.

There has been much speculation about whether Liverpool FC could move to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer amid Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet’s stuttering form.

However, Karius has been in more solid form in recent weeks and has been keeping Mignolet out of the first team at Anfield.

Despite this, there is still speculation that Liverpool FC could be on the hunt for a new shot-stopper this summer, and Italy legend Buffon is being touted as a possible target.

Liverpool FC are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the Reds look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League this term to secure their place in the Champions League spots for next season.

However, they will be looking to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League term.

Liverpool FC are preparing to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month.
