Liverpool are set to undergo a squad overhaul this summer and will possibly have to bring in a new back-up goalkeeper if Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher departs the club. Third choice Adrian is out of contract in the summer.

Tom Hopkinson for The Irish Mirror reports that New England Revolution goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic is on the radar of both Liverpool and Manchester United.

United are still in negotiations with David De Gea over a new contract and Tom Heaton’s deal expires in the summer. Jack Butland is set to return from his loan spell in Manchester back to his parent club Crystal Palace.

Dean Henderson is due to return to Old Trafford in the summer when his loan at Nottingham Forest ends but the Englishman is highly unlikely to stay and fight De Gea for the no.1 spot.

The 23-year-old Serbian Petrovic’s performances have reportedly been watched already by scouts from Liverpool and Man Utd and his progress will continue to be monitored.

Liverpool’s current no.2 goalie Kelleher hinted at a possible summer departure a few months ago as he seeks regular first team football. Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, widely regarded as one of the best in the world, is set to be Liverpool’s no.1 for the foreseeable future.
