Liverpool now joint favourites to sign AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma

Liverpool are now JOINT-FAVOURITES to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma

The AC Milan goalkeeper looks set to leave the Italian capital in the summer, and the bookies have slashed odds on the Reds making a move to just 2/1, putting them level with long-time favourites Real Madrid.

The Merseyside outfit are one of two Premier League clubs thought to be in the running for the young shot-stopper, with Arsenal priced as 4/1 shots ahead of Juventus (9/2) – while PSG are currently considered the third-most likely side to make a move at 5/2.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “If the rumours are anything to go by, Donnarumma will be looking for a new club this summer and the latest odds suggest it’s Liverpool who’ll fancy their chances of striking a deal.”

Do Liverpool need a new goalkeeper?

Liverpool did not enjoy the best of days on Saturday as they were defeated 2-1 by great rivals Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford did the damage in the first half with two early goals for Manchester United. An Eric Bailly own goal brought Liverpool back into the match midway through the second half.

Loris Karius has generally been excellent since usurping Simon Mignolet as Liverpool’s number one.

As things stand, it would be a surprise if Karius was not first choice at the start of next season.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson has also been heavily linked with Liverpool in recent weeks.
