The Reds are considering making the Irishman their No.2.
Aston Villa’s unwanted goalkeeper Shay Given could be given a surprising get-out clause as Liverpool prepare to make the 37-year-old their No.2, according to the Daily Mail.
Given is expected to be leaving Villa Park this summer, after becoming surplus to requirements under manager Paul Lambert due to the rise to prominence of Brad Guzan.
Whilst it was thought not many Premier League sides would take on the Irishman, the Reds have emerged as candidates to make the stopper their second choice behind Simon Mignolet.
Given played just two league matches last term after Guzan became the indisputable No.1 at the Birmingham side and Lambert is keen to get the ‘keeper’s £60,000-a-week wages off the books.
The Ireland international is hugely experienced in the English top tier however, having played 440 league matches since joining Blackburn Rovers in 1995.
The stopper went on to feature for Swindon Town and Sunderland, before joining Newcastle United in 1997 and spending 12 years at St James’ Park, before eventually departing for Manchester City and then Villa.
The Merseyside club have already been busy in the transfer market this summer having acquired five new players, but manager Brendan Rodgers is expected to be busy right up until deadline day on September 2.
With an injury to new signing Kolo Toure in mid-week, Rodgers is looking to bring in at least one more defender and Sporting Lisbon’s Tiago Ilori and Mamadou Sakho of Paris Saint-Germain look like the most likely candidates.
