Hull City

Liverpool looking at sealing surprise agreement for 34-year-old Championship stalwart

Premier League giants Liverpool are interested in signing Hull City goalkeeper David Marshall in the summer, according to reports from Football Insider.

The Reds will be in the market for a new goalkeeper in the summer, with Simon Mignolet set to leave Anfield having made just two appearances in all competitions this season, behind Alisson Becker in the pecking order.

And according to Football Insider, Reds sporting director Michael Edwards have started to declare an interest in Hull shot-stopper and Scotland international David Marshall.

The 34-year-old signed for the Tigers from Cardiff City in 2016, and has since made 67 appearances following his move from the Bluebirds three years ago.

The experienced shot-stopper, who has made 44 appearances for Nigel Adkins’ side this season, is currently facing an uncertain future at the KCOM Stadium, with his current deal set to expire at the end of next month.

And if the Tigers are to attempt to keep hold of Marshall, then they will have to fight off competition from Champions League finalists Liverpool, who are looking to bolster their goalkeeping options going into the 2019/20 season.

The Verdict

This is very worrying news for Hull if they are hoping to keep hold of Marshall this summer, with Liverpool now interested.

It will seem like a bizarre piece of news for many, but plenty of Premier League clubs are starting to sign experienced goalkeepers from the league below.

Manchester United signed Lee Grant, whilst Chelsea signed Rob Green, and Marshall could be a very good option for Jurgen Klopp to have.
