Caoimhin Kelleher admits he may have to leave Liverpool this summer

Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher has admitted that he wants to be a number one goalkeeper next season and admits that his ambition is unlikely to be filled at Anfield next season. 

The Irishman has been with the Reds throughout his whole career and has been Alisson Becker’s backup ever since making his debut in 2019.

The 25-year-old has earned a top-class education from watching the Brazilian over the years, as many consider the Liverpool shot-stopper as the best goalkeeper in the world. However, Kelleher now wants the main role at a club and is aware that he will have to leave Anfield to achieve that.

Speaking to The Athletic about his future, the Irish goalkeeper said: “It would be great if that happened at Liverpool [becoming number one], but I’m not silly. I know that Ali has been the best goalkeeper in the world for years.

“I’ve had such an amazing time at Liverpool. It’s been a crazy journey for me and one that I’ve absolutely loved. I love the club, I love the fans and I have a great relationship with the players and the staff. Whether it’s here at Liverpool or somewhere else, I do feel the next step for me is to be a No 1.”

Kelleher has a contract with Liverpool until 2026 and with the summer transfer window around the corner, there are clubs interested in the 25-year-old.
