Reports suggest that Liverpool are interested to lure Austrian keeper Alex Manninger to Anfield on a one-year deal after the 39-year old veteran began training with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The shot-stopper was released by the German side Augsburg at the end of last season, but it seems his next move could be at the Merseyside outfit.
According to The Times, Manninger is set to become the Reds’ new third choice keeper – behind Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet in the pecking order.
Former Arsenal keeper Alex Manninger is training with Liverpool with a view to becoming 3rd choice behind Karius and Mignolet.
