Alisson Becker and Jan Oblak are Liverpool FC’s top two goalkeeping targets this summer, Duncan Castles has claimed.

The Reds are thought to be in the market to sign a new goalkeeper in the current transfer window following the Champions League final.

Liverpool FC number one Loris Karius made two big mistakes in a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the European Cup showpiece.

The Merseyside outfit have struggled to sign a world-class goalkeeper since Brendan Rodgers allowed Pepe Reina to leave in 2013.

AS Roma shot stopper Alisson is one of the most coveted goalkeepers in Europe following two impressive seasons in the Italian capital.

Oblak has impressed at Atletico Madrid and helped Diego Simeone’s side to win the Europa League title last term.

Sunday Times reporter Castles named Alisson and Oblak as Jurgen Klopp’s top targets to solve their long-running problems in goal.

“They are trying to get a goalkeeper,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.

“The top two choices are Alisson and Oblak. Both of those players, if they were able to convince them to come to Liverpool, would be extremely expensive.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.
