Liverpool will reportedly attempt to complete a big transfer coup by bringing in Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech on loan in January to solve their problems in this position.
The Reds are in dire need of a new goalkeeper due to the poor form of Simon Mignolet and the inexperience of playing at the top level in Australian goalkeeper Brad Jones.
Many names have been thrown around but Cech's seems to have stuck due to the fact he is playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge this season.
Liverpool have been far from impressive in defence, conceding 22 goals in the Premier League in only 16 games with Mignolet only keeping four clean sheets. The Belgian has not been exempt from the poor displays as he does not fill the Liverpool faithful with confidence.
Mignolet fails to claim crosses, command his defence and deal with simple saves which all contributed to him being replaced by Jones in the derby defeat against Manchester United.
Liverpool fans are still left wondering why Pepe Reina was let go if Rodgers intended on Mignolet having stiff competition for his number one spot. The club have also dismissed reports they have agreed a deal with Malaga to sign Guillermo Ochoa for £3 million. The Mexican impressed during the World Cup in Brazil.
Cech allowed to move
If Cech is allowed to join Liverpool it is a clear sign that Jose Mourinho does not see the Anfield as a threat anymore. This would be similar to the Juan Mata case last January as Mourinho let the Spaniard go to Manchester United.
Chelsea have not dismissed the rumours despite Cech starting the last three games, however, Mourinho rotated the squad against Sporting due to their early qualification and Courtois picking up a muscle injury.
Courtois has been more than impressive this season and Cech will be limited to first team appearances when Mourinho decides to rotate the squad and if an injury occurs to the Belgian number one.
It will be interesting to see if this deal will be completed, and Liverpool will be getting quite a signing if they are able to pull it off.
