Liverpool FC are set to miss out on Zorya Luhansk goalkeeper Andriy Lunin this summer, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds have fallen behind Real Madrid in the race to sign the impressive teenage goalkeeper in the current transfer window.

The same article states that the 6ft 3ins shot stopper is desperate to complete a move to Real Madrid as opposed to Premier League side Liverpool FC.

According to the same story, los Blancos are set to pay around £11m to sign the 19-year-old goalkeeper from the Ukrainian side.

Lunin has kept 21 clean sheets in 50 games over the past two seasons for Zorya Luhansk, while the teenager earned his first Ukraine cap in 2017.

Liverpool FC look set to miss out on Brazil international Alisson Becker, too, after the AS Roma goalkeeper was reported to have agreed terms with Real Madrid.

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last weekend.

Karius made two mistakes to allow Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale to find the net in a resounding win for the defending champions.

The Liverpool FC goalkeeper has made improvements to his game over the past few months after replacing Simon Mignolet as number one.
