Jurgen Klopp has been tipped to sign South Korea goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo as a replacement for unreliable Loris Karius by one of his close advisors. Liverpool are searching for a new first-choice goalkeeper and have been heavily linked with many high-profile goalkeepers.
Jorn Andersen has revealed that he told Jurgen Klopp via a text message in December that he should closely monitor Cho’s progress in South Korea. The shot-stopper was expected to be South Korea’s back-up option at the World Cup but the 26-year-old ended up being one of the surprise stars in Russia as he impressed in all three group games against. Andersen, meanwhile, is a close friend of Liverpool boss following their time together at Eintracht Frankfurt and still remains in contact with him.
‘He has listened to me before, so it would be nice if he does it again,’ Andersen said in an interview with Dagbladet. ‘I am convinced that Cho Hyun-woo will be a good choice for Liverpool. ‘I do not think Klopp will continue with Karius, I think Liverpool will pick up a new goalkeeper after the World Cup.
‘Not only because of what happened in the Champions League final, simply because he must have someone who is better than he has.’
