Liverpool now lining up move for 23-year-old talent to replace 'world-class' player - journalist

Liverpool are reportedly lining up a move for Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson as a potential replacement for Caoimhin Kelleher.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper has emerged as one of the most exciting talents in the Championship, with Patterson already making over 100 appearances for the Black Cats.

And the England youth international is now attracting some major interest from Liverpool, who could move for Patterson as a replacement for Kelleher in the summer.

According to journalist Alan Nixon, the Republic of Ireland international is wanted by numerous Premier League clubs as well as Celtic, with Kelleher expected to leave Anfield this year.

Lauded by Virgil van Dijk as a ‘world-class’ player, losing Kelleher would be a major blow for Liverpool given how good a backup option the goalkeeper is for Alisson Becker.

However, Patterson could be a worthy replacement for Kelleher, with the Sunderland shot-stopper tipped for a big future in football having become a star in the Championship.
