The Liverpool Echo believe that Thibaut Courtois could genuinely move to Anfield this summer if things fall into place.
It seems bizarre linking a player who has won three league titles in the past four seasons with a team yet win a single Premier League title, but that’s the reality we find ourselves in.
Courtois walking out of the door becomes more and more of a real possibility with every day that passes without him signing a contract extension.
The Belgian has just 12-months left to run on his contract with Chelsea, and has been noticeably non-committal when discussing his future in the public eye.
Courtois could soon be on the market, and Liverpool are in need of a new goalkeeper. Could he be the man to replace the error-prone Loris Karius?
The Liverpool Echo report that if AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson moves to Real Madrid and Jan Oblak remains with Atletico Madrid, Courtois could find himself out of options.
A move to Liverpool could be all that remains on the table for him if he is as desperate to leave Chelsea as they suggest.
Our belief is that Courtois’ willingness to move to Real Madrid is not a reflection of his discontent at Chelsea.
His family still live in Madrid following his time with Atletico, and Courtois has endured a difficult three-years away from them.
There is little to suggest that a move to Liverpool would be even remotely appealing to him. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet.
