Liverpool are about to play a crucial European final that will determine whether they play Champions League football next season but it looks like Jurgen Klopp still wants to change up his squad ahead of his first full campaign in charge.

The coming months will see the German get his first summer transfer window and his first pre-season in charge, and reports in his homeland say that he has his sights set on a highly regarded goalkeeper to replace Simon Mignolet.

The Belgian has been a solid shot-stopper at Anfield but his propensity for making mistakes has seen his place come under pressure as Klopp looks to strengthen the team.

Kicker in Germany are reporting that Klopp is set to raid his former club Mainz for goalkeeper Loris Karius. The German has been capped at every underage level for his country and was part of a defence that tied for the fourth best record in the Bundesliga this season.

While talks are apparently at an early stage, Liverpool fans were more than happy to speculate about how good the Reds could be if they replaced the error-prone Mignolet with the 22-year-old.
