Liverpool have been linked with yet another goalkeeper, with Simon Mignolet’s future at the Anfield club clearly in doubt.
The latest to be linked with a switch to Merseyside is Norwich City stopper John Ruddy, who dropped down to the Championship with the Canaries after their relegation to the second tier last season.
Brendan Rodgers dropped Mignolet for the game against Manchester United at Old Trafford at the weekend.
Second choice goalkeeper Brad Jones deputised for the Belgian goalkeeper, but conceded three goals in the face of an onslaught from Louis van Gaal’s side.
Jones’ place in the side is not expected to be on a permanent basis.
As a result, Rodgers is set to bring in another goalkeeper in January, with England international Ruddy another name on the list.
A move back to the Premier League would likely appeal to Ruddy, as it would undoubtedly help him break back into the England setup, having seen himself fall behind Fraser Forster, Ben Foster and Joe Hart in the pecking order.
Liverpool would probably have to pay around £8 million to sign him from Norwich.
