Throughout the years, Liverpool have boasted some incredible goalkeepers, including Bruce Grobbelaar, Jerzy Dudek, and Pepe Reina. Yet since, the latter's departure in 2013, the position has been something of a problem for The Reds.
The man who eventually replaced Reina, Simon Mignolet, was brought in from Sunderland and has seen his Anfield tenure marred by a string of high profile, point-costing mistakes. Despite putting in some good performances and making a few famous penalty saves, the good has been far outweighed by the bad.
Loris Karius was then brought in by Klopp, and was supposed to be the answer to Liverpool's problems, but the German has enjoyed even less success than his Belgian counterpart. Karius' Champions League costing blunders against Real Madrid are the latest, and worst, in a long series of high profile errors, and will surely be the final nail in the goalkeeper's Liverpool coffin.
Liverpool's current attacking force is one of the best in the world, with their problems coming at the other end of the pitch. Klopp made a good start rectifying this, by bringing in Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, but this means relatively little if there is not a good keeper behind him. Bringing in a solid goalkeeper may be the final step Klopp needs to take in order to win his first trophy at Anfield, and there are several options for the manager to consider.
