Liverpool will not be signing Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen but have agreed a deal for another youngster in Kamil Grabara, according to reports from Slask Sport.
Liverpool are widely expected to be signing a new goalkeeper during the January transfer window and it was reported that the Reds had launched a £20million bid for Barcelona star Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp refuted such claims by stating when asked about the offer for ter Stegen, “No. We have some problems at this moment but thank God not around the goalkeeper position so everything is okay.
“It’s how I said plenty of time on the goalkeeper position and the situation is more than okay, we are satisfied. I know both goalkeepers”.
Nonetheless, Klopp is set to bring in a new goalkeeper to Liverpool in the form of teenage sensation Kamil Grabara. Hailed as the new “Jerzy Dudek”, Grabara has earned a reputation as one of the finest young goal minders to emerge out of Poland in recent times.
Klopp has been impressed with what he has seen of Grabara and it has now been claimed that Liverpool have struck a deal with Polish side Ruch to sign the 17-year old.
Confirming the potential deal, Ruch President, Dariusz Smagoroicz, recently stated, “Grabara has been with us 12 years. A few months ago we signed a contract with him to keep him until 2018, and now Liverpool want to have him.”
