A £58,000 per week employee at Anfield will have his or her contract extended, according to Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who spoke exclusively to GIVEMESPORT, Liverpool is about to announce that goalkeeper Adrian has extended his contract at Anfield.
With the goalkeeping position secured for the foreseeable future, Jurgen Klopp will look to strengthen the team in other areas.
This week, Fabrizio Romano revealed that Adrian had signed a new contract at Anfield and that an announcement was forthcoming, adding the Spaniard to the Reds’ 2023–24 plans.
The 36-year-old is Allison Becker’s backup and will be content knowing that, despite his advancing years, he has a future at Anfield.
The goalkeeper joined Liverpool after being released by West Ham in the summer of 2019 and has spent the last four years filling in for Allison or Caoimhin Kelleher in the starting lineup when necessary.
Although the club’s third-choice goalie at the moment, Klopp has praised the benchwarmer for maintaining a positive attitude despite his limited playing time.
In 2021, Klopp said to the media, “If you want, he is now number three (goalkeeper), but in the dressing room, you will never see any difference,” according to the Liverpool Echo.
He simply has a very strong personality and supports the team even when he isn’t on the field. “.
It’s now a matter of waiting for a club statement from Liverpool to confirm the goalkeeper’s extension, according to Romano, who spoke to GIVEMESPORT.
Additionally, the Italian journalist made a suggestion that Adrian had interest from Spanish and Italian clubs before the initial term of his £58,000 per week contract expired this summer.
Romano told GIVEMESPORT after confirming Adrian’s new contract with Liverpool that “He had some possibilities in Spain.”. Italian clubs also inquired about the circumstance. However, since everything has reportedly been signed, Adrian is expected to be prepared to make the announcement of this new contract. ”.
Despite extending his stay at Anfield, Adrian is not anticipated to challenge Allison for the starting goalkeeper position because Allison is one of the best keepers in the world.
The Sevilla-born star may be given the chance to play goalkeeper in the club’s early Carabao Cup and Europa League campaigns next season in an effort to add to the 26 appearances he has made so far in his Reds career.
Klopp will be content as he moves on to more crucial issues in the Liverpool squad because FSG made a wise decision to keep an experienced head on staff inside the dressing room.
