Liverpool FC will step up their bid to sign a new goalkeeper this summer after Loris Karius’ nightmare in the Champions League final, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds will look to bring in a new shot-stopper this summer after both Karius and Mignolet failed to convince this season.

Karius was at fault for two of Real Madrid’s goals as Liverpool FC slumped to a disappointing 3-1 loss to the Spanish giants in the final in Kiev on Saturday.

The same report now says that AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson and Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid are the two top targets on Liverpool FC’s transfer wish-list as they look to strengthen their options between the posts ahead of next season.

The story says that Klopp was ready to give Karius a shot at holding down the number one spot at Anfield, but Saturday’s display has reportedly changed his mind.

The same article says that both Alisson and Oblak will be difficult to sign this summer as they are both likely to command hefty transfer fees.

Liverpool FC ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy.
