Journalist David Lynch has stated that Liverpool are not looking to move goalkeeper Adrian on, but they would not stand in his way if he wanted to depart come the end of the season.

Adrian, who signed for Liverpool on a free transfer in the summer of 2019, has been decent for the Reds.

The goalkeeper played a pivotal part in Liverpool claiming the UEFA Super Cup against Cheslea, but not everything has gone the way he would have liked.

Adrian made a crucial error against Atletico Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League, recently which ultimately ended Liverpool’s European dream.

Liverpool are not looking to replace Adrian, but the club would let him go if he wished to play elsewhere as a No. 1, according to the Evening Standard’s David Lynch.

“A back-up ‘keeper would depend on whether reported interest from Spain in Adrian firms up,” Lynch said.

“Liverpool aren’t looking to ship him out after his Champions League blunder (these things happen) but they wouldn’t stand in the way if the offer to play first-team football came in the player expressed a desire to leave.

“However, I’m not sure that would provide a reprieve for Karius, who wouldn’t be content to simply sit on the bench and could probably do with getting away from the Premier League spotlight as he continues to rebuild his reputation.”

It is really difficult to find solid No. 2  goalkeepers. Adrian is not the best, but he is handy to have when Alisson is not available.

If Adrian wants to stay, then Liverpool should do everything to make sure that happens.
