Liverpool’s Loris Karius is determined to prove to manager Jurgen Klopp he does not need to buy a goalkeeper in the summer.
The German has been installed as number one at Anfield ahead of Simon Mignolet over the last month. Did he turn a corner against Tottenham?
Liverpool continue to be linked with the likes of Stoke’s Jack Butland, Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Roma’s Allison but with the position now Karius’s to lose he is intent on not giving Klopp a decision to make.
“If you read the press as a Liverpool player then every week we would have five new signings in every position,” he said.
“You can’t go crazy about the speculation. When I look at the training, I think we do have good quality already with the keepers.
“I think we’ve been a bit unlucky at times. Often you don’t have much to do.
“Then if you don’t do something 100 per cent right it weighs a lot heavier than for other goalies at smaller clubs who have several more saves to make in a game.
“That’s life at a big club like Liverpool and you have to deal with it.
“I just want to present myself well and then I’ll have the chance to play at this club for the next season as well.
“That’s the challenge facing me personally. I also want to help this team achieve as much as we can.
“As well as the top four, we still have the Champions League.
“We want to go forward in that and why not win it?”
