Lunin could replace Alisson at Liverpool – source

The Ukrainian continues to be wooed by various European clubs

Ukrainian goalkeeper Real Andrey Lunin can continue his career in Liverpool.

The Reds are preparing for Alisson’s potential departure. In turn, the Merseyside club’s management is considering the option of Lunin as a replacement for the Brazilian.

The Ukrainian goalkeeper has informed Real that he plans to begin pre-season training with him at the Valdebebas training base. Lunin’s agent Jorge Mendes will arrive in Madrid this week to discuss the Ukrainian goalkeeper’s future with the club.

Real is interested in extending Andriy’s contract, which currently runs until the summer of 2025. The Blancos continue to see the Ukrainian as a backup goalkeeper for Thibaut Courtois.

At the same time, Lunin himself does not want to extend the current agreement, and his decision was influenced by Courtois’s appearance in the starting lineup for the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund (2:0), when the Belgian had just recovered from a long-term injury.

In April, it was reported that Lunin had received offers from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and PSG (the Parisians were allegedly ready to pay 18 million euros for the goalkeeper).

Representatives of Atletico, Betis, Juventus, Aston Villa, Arsenal and Newcastle also contacted Real. The latter two were reportedly ready to pay 25 million euros for the Ukrainian. Manchester City is also considering the Ukrainian as an alternative to Ederson.

Lunin played 31 matches for Real in all tournaments in the 2023/24 season. The goalkeeper conceded 32 goals and kept 12 clean sheets.

Real Madrid won the Spanish title last season and triumphed in the Champions League.

Liverpool finished third in the English Premier League and will play Ipswich Town in the first round of the new season on August 17.
