Iker Casillas would make Liverpool a much stronger team defensively next season if the Reds can lure the shot stopper to Anfield.

It is an open secret in Spain that things are not exactly hunky dory at present between Real Madrid head coach Jose Mourinho and his captain, goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Despite a return to fitness, the World Cup and double European Championships winner has not been able to oust Diego Lopez from the starting XI at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
As a result, stories have emerged linking the hugely-experienced Spain international with a possible summer move to the Premier League, with Liverpool and Arsenal particularly linked.
With Pepe Reina out of form for the last few seasons – up until late December, he had the worst save percentage of any regular goalkeeper in the Premier League – Liverpool may be considering other options between the posts.
Arsenal of course have recently dropped Wojciech Szczesny, and replacement Lukasz Fabianski hasn’t exactly convinced throughout his career at Emirates Stadium.
One stumbling block for either club, however, may be the 31-year-old’s transfer fee, with footballer database transfermarkt quoting his current market value as a whopping £31 million for a player contracted to Madrid until 2017.
However, if either club can afford him they would be getting arguably the world’s best keeper, who still has at least another five years at the very top.
