Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is set to take a closer look at Chesterfield goalkeeper Aaron Chapman, according to reports.

The Sunday Mirror reports that the Northern Irishman 'likes the look' of the 22-year-old stopper, who signed a new contract with the Spireites at the end of last week.

Despite not being able to force his way into the League Two title-chasing side in Yorkshire, Chapman is tipped for big things in the game, and Premier League clubs have started to take note.

And, it's clubs from Merseyside who could go head-to-head for the signature of the Football League starlet, with both offering the keeper a trial in red and blue.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is set to take the first look, and isn't short of stoppers at Goodison Park.

Tim Howard and Joel Robles battle for first team opportunities for the Toffees, whilst teenager Mason Springthorpe is one for the future.

Chapman is unlikely to go into senior contention if he were to join Everton, but would be another one for the future.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have Simon Mignolet as their clear number one, with Brad Jones the Belgian stopper's back-up.

The future of Pepe Reina remains far from clear with the Reds though, with the Spaniard out on loan in Italy and his Anfield future looking bleak.

Again, Chapman wouldn't go straight into first team reckoning at Liverpool, but could challenge for a place on the bench and then in Rodgers' side over the coming years.
