Liverpool have jumped into the race for Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno. 

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is under big pressure to sign a new goalkeeper following Loris Karius' disastrous performance for the club in the Champions League final.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of goalkeepers and now Leno is firmly on their radar as Klopp looks to raid the BayArena for the shot-stopper.

Fellow Premier League side Arsenal are admirers of Leno, while Napoli want to take him to Italy; Atletico Madrid are also suitors.

Liverpool have jumped into pole position though and, according to German daily Bild, the Reds have put €25m on the table for Leno.


The Reds may be confident of winning the race for the goalkeeper, with the prospect of working under Klopp likely to be a tempting one for the Leverkusen custodian.

It remains to be seen whether any of Leno's other admirers will move to rival Liverpool's proposal.
