IKER CASILLAS

Jurgen Klopp seems to have landed on Loris Karius as his number one at Liverpool ahead of Simon Mignolet.

Roma’s Alisson has nevertheless been strongly linked with a move to Anfield but reports suggest the Reds don’t agree to the Serie A outfit’s valuation of the player.

But reports have suggested the Reds have been put off by Roma’s valuation of the Brazilian which is in the region of €80 million which is out of Liverpool’s budget.

According to Spanish outlet Mi Otra Liga, Iker Casillas has therefore emerged as an alternative.

Verdict

The former Real Madrid skipper may not be the keeper he once was but could legitimately be better than what Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal. He received a great reception at Anfield when he played there with Porto this season. A new challenge, a new lease of life perhaps?

Rating – 5/10

JEAN MICHAEL SERI

Manchester United and Manchester City are set to go head-to-head again, this time for Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Jose Mourinho is keen to add to his midfield and the lively Seri tops his list. The Ivorian would help account for Michael Carrick’s retirement but Pep Guardiola is equally interested in having the player replace Fernandinho at City.

Verdict

United do need a replacement for Carrick but Seri may not be the pass-master they require. City on the other hand have other options available. For the right price though, Seri could be a great signing.
