Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation has been well documented over the course of the last two seasons and Jurgen Klopp is still seemingly unsure as to who his first choice is.

The Reds boss has alternated Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius over some time now but, in recent weeks, the latter has been the preferred candidate between the sticks.

Klopp revealed that Karius will keep his place in goal on Wednesday, too, as Liverpool take on FC Porto away from home in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash.

However, Klopp was coy when speaking about Mignolet and insisted that he was unsure what the future holds for his goalkeeper.

“Nobody knows about the future, or I don’t know about the future. In this business it is always the same – it says nothing about that.”

“It’s not for me to think about these kind of things. I have to make a decision for tomorrow night and that’s all. No problem.”

Karius will be keen to impress and turn in a good performance against Porto.

Liverpool interested in Real Madrid 'keeper Keylor Navas .
Liverpool are reportedly very interested in signing the Real Madrid’s number one goalkeeper, Keylor Navas, according to Football365. Reports in Spain suggest that Florentino Perez wants Navas out of the Santiago Bernabeu next summer, and Merseyside may be where he looks to go. Navas has been pretty much ever-present for Los Blancos this season, as they look to progress into the Champions League quarter-final, albeit domestically sitting 17 points behind leaders and arch-rivals FC Barcelona. It was reported that Arsenal were interested in Navas as a replacement for Petr Cech during the January transfer window, but now the Reds look like his most likely destination. Liverpool have been criticised heavily for defensive performances this season, and the goalkeepers have taken a lot of that criticism. It is reported that Jurgen Klopp is looking to replace Simon Mignolet as Loris Karius looks to be his preferred number one, having played all games bar two since Boxing Day, only losing once with him between the sticks. Simon Mignolet has said in a recent interview (via Football365): “After all that has happened this season, I know where I am at and the situation has become clearer.” “Klopp told me honestly and personally in that conversation. Of course I am absolutely not satisfied with that, but I must always respect a decision of the coach.” So the Belgian may be on his way out of Anfield by the looks of it, and another will goalkeeper will have to be signed, and that may well be Keylor Navas in the next transfer window.
