Costa Rican hero has clause that allows him to move on the cheap.
Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal have been placed on high alert after learning that Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave the club for just £6.5m, according to the Daily Mail.
The Costa Rican has become one of the world’s most sought after goalkeepers alongside Mexico star Guillermo Ochoa this summer following his heroics at getting the Central American’s to the quarter finals of the World cup.
The hero of the penalty shoot-out said: ‘We left our fear at home – that is why we came through a group that had three former World Cup winners in it. We are not afraid of anyone.’
Navas is currently on the books with La Liga outfit Levante, though it looks as though they will not be able to keep hold of him for much longer as he will be available to leave the club for just £6.5m.
In the entire World Cup qualifying campaign he conceded just seven goals – only the United States let in fewer than Costa Rica. And having conceded just once in the group matches, against Uruguay, he made the save of the tournament against Greece in Recife to keep out Theofanis Gekas’s penalty.
However, the English sides may be set to miss out on his signature as Atletico Madrid are also keen on the player as they search for a replacement for Thibaut Courtois, who has returned to Chelsea after spending thee years on loan in the Spanish capital.
