Liverpool star Caoimhin Kelleher has 'asked to leave the club' this summer amid interest from Tottenham

Tottenham have joined the race to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher this summer, according to reports.

Liverpool have endured a tumultuous season in Merseyside, but look to be finishing the season on a high.

Mohamed Salah's first-half strike was enough to seal victory over Brentford on Sunday, extending the Reds' Premier League winning run to six in a row.

Their form has left Klopp with a genuine shot at finishing inside the Champions League places, with Manchester United losing valuable ground in fourth place.


Just two points separate the sides, although Erik ten Hag has an all important game in hand over Liverpool.

Regardless of their finishing position, Klopp will have his sights set on next season as the German looks to reignite the teams' winning mentality.


But one player who might not be a part of his plans is 24-year-old shot-stopper Kelleher, who is keen to secure first-team football elsewhere.


Kelleher to leave Liverpool?

Kelleher has had to play second-fiddle to Alisson at Anfield, with his route to the starting 11 seemingly blocked off for the foreseeable future.

According to The Transfer Room, Kelleher has asked to leave Liverpool in the summer in search of regular game time.

The Republic of Ireland international has only managed 20 senior appearances for Liverpool since joining the club in 2015, the majority of which have come in domestic cup competitions.


Liverpool are reportedly ready to let Kelleher leave once a club are willing to match their valuation of around £20m.

Tottenham have emerged as possible suitors, according to the Irish Independent, as rumours swirl around Hugo Lloris' future in north London.

Fraser Forster has started Tottenham's last three matches between the sticks, deputising for the injured Lloris. However, the 35-year-old isn't getting any younger and Kelleher could be a sensible alternative.

Brentford are also reportedly monitoring the player, with current no.1 David Raya linked with a move to Old Trafford, while Brighton are also said to be interested.
