Reds stopper would welcome extra competition for places

Liverpool reserve Peter Gulacsi would welcome the signing of another goalkeeper at Anfield this summer.

The 20-year-old Hungarian U21 international's comments come amidst increased speculation linking the Reds with a move for an experienced stopper to provide back up to current No.1 Pepe Reina.

Kenny Dalglish is already making waves in the transfer market this summer with the capture of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland, who moves to Anfield in a deal worth a reported £16million.

Next in line for Liverpool though is a goalkeeping addition to replace Gulacsi who is poised for a loan move away to give him some much needed first team football.

Former Reds stopper Brad Friedel had been heavily linked with a return to Anfield, but instead opted to join Tottenham Hotspur, and now Liverpool’s sights are said to be fixed on Roma keeper, Alexander Doni.


"I had already been thinking about my possible departure in March although that time it wasn't a topic that Brad Friedel or Doni may sign for Liverpool," Gulacsi confirmed.

"When my agents and I indicated to the club officials that I would like to move to another club on loan they agreed with us and thought the same.

"The best way for me to improve is to play regularly. I don't know where I will play but talks are going well.

"I have offers from England and also from outside of England. I hope within 10 days or two weeks it will be a fact where I will continue my career - on loan.

"Liverpool said they rely on me for a long period and it made me very proud. But they added if I go then a seasoned goalkeeper may arrive at the club, which is understandable."
