Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp requests move for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly told the club that he wants to sign Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, according to the Metro.

The 23-year-old had previously been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund when Klopp was in charge there, but instead chose to make the move to Spain, where he helped Barca to life the 2014/15 Champions League title (via Metro).

However, a report in Spanish publication Sport claims that Ter Stegen is unsettled in Catalonia as he doesn’t enjoy sharing goalkeeping duties with Claudio Bravo, who frequently plays in the club’s league games.

The Metro claims that Klopp has been left unconvinced by the abilities of both Simon Mignolet and Adam Bogdan and believes that the Germany international would be the ideal man to add some extra quality to the squad in that department.

And though Ter Stegen has qualities that would likely see him prove to be a success in England, the Metro highlights his £56.7million release clause as a potential stumbling block.
