Slot is ready to embark on his first pre-season as Liverpool manager. The Dutchman has big boots to fill! The former Feyenoord manager succeeds Jürgen Klopp who has won almost every trophy available during his nine-year spell at Anfield, including the Champions League in 2019 and the club’s first Premier League in 30 years the following season.

And among his first jobs, which he would certainly avoid is satisfying the wishes of the Reds’ Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

Football Insider have claimed that Kelleher is planning to push for a move away from Anfield, with the 25-year-old looking to become the number one goalkeeper elsewhere.

Celtic are said to be interested in the Ireland international following Joe Hart’s retirement, but the Parkhead club will find it difficult to match Liverpool’s valuation of Kelleher. – Also, Kelleher has impressed every time he has had the opportunity to play for Liverpool and has Premier League level inside and more. Jürgen Klopp has referred to him “as the world’s best second-choice goalkeeper”

And Football Insider have added that Kelleher is prioritizing a move to the Premier League after impressing during his time at Liverpool.

The goalkeeper played 26 games for Liverpool last season, including ten games in the Premier League after first-choice goalkeeper Allison Becker suffered an injury. Kelleher kept five clean sheets and conceded 32 goals in these games.
