Liverpool weighing up move for former England player to bolster squad



Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is contemplating a move for QPR goalkeeper Rob Green, according to the Evening Standard.


The ex-England international has been frozen out of the first-team picture at Loftus Road as they do not wish to activate a clause that will extend his contract for another year, meaning that he could be available to clubs for a cut price.

Klopp has seemingly lost faith in current second choice Adam Bogdan, after he made a series of errors against both Watford and Exeter in recent weeks.

Green would provide not only a good quality back-up to current first choice Simon Mignolet, but also provide valuable experience, having made 267 Premier League appearances and earning 12 England caps.

Green’s time at the R’s looks to have come to an end, as Hasselbaink’s seeks to get high earners off the wage bill in preparation for next season.

It is looking like Alex Smithies will be the first choice for the remainder of this campaign, so Klopp may see Green as a good way of strengthening his overall squad with little expenditure.

QPR have very little chance of an immediate return to the Premier League, currently sitting in 15th place.

Moves such as this indicate that there will be a huge overhaul of the squad this summer, as Hasselbaink looks to stamp his own identity on the playing staff at Loftus Road.

QPR fans…What do you think? Is it a good move to let Green go? Is Smithies good enough to replace him? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
