Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton are reportedly engaged in a three-way battle for Burnley’s £15m-rated goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
The 30-year-old has been a key part of the Clarets’ impressive Premier League performance this season, featuring 20 times, making 93 saves and keeping five clean sheets to help them up to 13th in the table.
Reportedly, a number of clubs have enquired about the possibility of acquiring Heaton this window, although Burnley would be more open to selling him in the summer once their Premier League status has been confirmed for another season.
Jurgen Klopp is understandably keen to ensure new signing Loris Karius has a top-level specialist in between the sticks and the experienced Englishman has emerged as a surprise potential transfer target.
The Burnley goalkeeper is not the only man said to be under consideration though.
Manchester City ace Joe Hart is believed to be on Klopp’s radar too – although Chelsea have also been linked with him.
The Manchester United academy product has three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract but the newspaper claims that he has release clause in the event that the club are relegated back to the Championship.
Heaton joined Burnley from Bristol City on a free in 2013.
