Liverpool and Real Madrid have reportedly identified Sevilla stopper Alfonso Pastor as a potential target for the upcoming January transfer window.
With Sevilla’s two experienced goalkeepers unavailable for Wednesday’s Champions League meeting with the Blues, Pastor was thrust into the limelight for his debut.
While the Frank Lamoard’s side recorded a dominant 4-0 win, the 20-year-old produced a solid performance on his first outing in the senior ranks.
However, Pastor’s deal is set to expire at the end of the campaign, and his surprise appearance has inevitably led to interest in his services.
According to AS, Real Madrid and Liverpool may make an approach for the promising stopper during the January transfer window.
Although both teams are well stocked for options between the sticks, the ex-Spain Under-17 international is regarded as one for the future.
Real Madrid would allegedly look to use Pastor in their Castilla side while Liverpool also plan to sent him in the Reds U-23 side.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are allegedly set to face stiff competition from city rivals Everton for the signing of Brazilian centre-back Gleison Bremer in January, according to a report from the Liverpool Echo.
Bremer featured 35 times in all competitions for Torino last season, netting five goals and setting up three more.
The South American has started in all but one of the Turin-based side’s Serie A matches in the current term, chipping in with a goal.
Liverpool are in a crisis situation at the moment, owing to a spate of injuries to the defensive personnel since the start of the new campaign.
And Torino star is the latest addition to the list of the possible targets for Klopp & co. as the winter market looms.
