Liverpool have one of it not the best keepers in the world in Alisson Becker, but also have a very promising youngster in Caoimhin Kelleher.

Adrian, who has been Liverpool's no.2 for two seasons now, looks to be leaving at the end of the season when his contract expires and Liverpool might look to the young Irishman to take the Spaniards place on the bench.

Kelleher ended up starting five games for Liverpool this season. Two in the Premier League, two in the Champions League and one in the FA Cup. 

The 22-year-old only conceded three goals and kept two clean sheets, he also made a number of memorable saves that impressed the fans watching.

Even though there is a possibility Kelleher could play more games with Liverpool next season, there have been reports than the 22-year-old could be sent out on loan so he can play a full season.

According to Ipswich based TWTD, Kelleher is on Ipswich Towns list of goalkeeper recruits to replace two of their current keepers who they are looking to move on this summer.

Ipswich Manager Paul Cook, who is originally from Kirkby where Liverpool's training ground is based, is said to be interested in Kelleher and wants to bring him in to help the Blues promotion push next season.

The 22-year-old, who proved he is more than capable of playing at a high level, will be hoping he can get a full season under his belt to prove to the Liverpool coaching staff that he is good enough.

The report goes on to say that Ipswich may not be the only EFL side interested in the Irishman and that some Championship sides may be looking to bringing him in on loan too.

Whatever happens, as long as Kelleher gets game time and improves it's a good move for Liverpool. If he is moved onto a League One side though, you can be sure that Liverpool will make sure there is a minutes played clause in the contract to be certain he gets game time.
