Spanish goalkeeper set to leave Anfield this summer

By | February 14, 2020

Liverpool No 2 stopper Adrian is being touted as a target for his former club Real Betis ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 33-year-old joined the Merseyside Reds on a free transfer from the Hammers last summer, and was called into action from the start after first-choice goalkeeper Alisson was out due to knee injury on the opening day of the season.

He has played eight Premier League games and played a vital role in the Merseyside Reds win over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, however, he is now being considered by La Liga club Real Betis, according to Estadio Deportivo.

The report claims that Spanish keeper is being considered as a signing to provide competition for ex-Everton and Wigan stopper Joel Robles, who is currently the first-choice stopper at the club.

Real Betis do have Spain Under-21 international Dani Martin on their books, however, the summer signing from Spanish club Sporting Gijon has struggled to adapt.

Adrian came through the youth system at Real Betis and played 32 LaLiga games for them before making the switch to West Ham United back in the summer of 2013 and since then has been one of the best keepers in the English top-tier.
