Dalglish to snare former-Liverpool stopper from Spurs

Kenny Dalglish looks set to offer ex Liverpool keeper Brad Friedel a new contract in the summer, despite the American failing to impress the first time around at Merseyside, the Guardian reports.

Tottenham had long been linked with Friedel, with Spurs ready to replace keeper Heurelho Gomes, after the Brazilian suffered a disappointing season.


Friedel, who is currently at Aston Villa, has previously played for Liverpool, with the stopper heading to Merseyside in 1997. The move didn't last long though, with Friedel making only 25 appearances over three years.

While Liverpool looked to be in the market for a goalkeeper after Pepe Reina made his intentions of leaving the history-rich club clear, however, the star stopper backtracked on his decision after Kenny Dalglish signed on as permanent manager.

It would appear, therefore, that Dalglish is looking at Freidel as a back-up to Reina. And with Freidel out of contract at Villa, the Liverpool manager reportedly believes he can snare the stopper before Tottenham get their hands on him.

Freidel is reportedly looking for a club that may be able to give him Champions League experience, and while Liverpool can’t offer that next season, the club has made promising signings of both players and manager this season, and look to have a plan for future success.
