Kelleher ‘boost’ and FSG confirm purchase talks – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool have received a boost regarding Caoimhin Kelleher‘s future, while owners Fenway Sports Group have confirmed talks to purchase another club.

 

Kelleher transfer ‘boost’

Kelleher’s Liverpool future is up in the air this summer, with the Irishman confirming his desire to become a first-choice goalkeeper.

Nottingham Forest have been linked with the 25-year-old, bidding £15 million for him in the January transfer window, but a switch to the City Ground now looks unlikely.

That’s because Forest have announced the signing of 6’8″ giant Carlos Miguel from Brazilian side Corinthians, presumably to come in as their No. 1.

It remains to be seen what Kelleher’s decision will be, but Liverpool are unlikely to complain if they still have him around next season.
