Jurgen Klopp ready to beat Pep Guardiola in race for highly-demanded goalkeeper

Liverpool and Manchester City have reportedly identified Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk goalkeeper Andriy Lunin as a possible transfer target.

Last weekend, the two clubs played out one of the games of the season with Liverpool prevailing 4-3 at Anfield, but the two teams now appear ready to go head to head in the transfer market.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Premier League duo are keen to sign 18-year-old Lunin, who has already made 15 first-team appearances for his Ukrainian side.

Real Sociedad are said to be the favourites to sign Lunin in a deal worth over £5m, but Liverpool and City have entered the race for the teenager’s signature.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking for a long-term number one due to the inconsistencies of Simon Mignoletand Loris Karius, while Pep Guardiola may see Lunin as a future understudy to Ederson.
