Liverpool have been linked with a January move for Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama with the Guardian on Friday reporting that the Lille man may be a Brendan Rodgers target.
The 32 year old Super Eagles captain would cost the Anfield side £4m and would certainly represent an improvement on error prone Belgian Simon Mignolet.
Last term Enyeama racked up 11 straight clean sheets in Ligue 1 and is an experienced campaigner who could offer Rodgers a cost effective option between the sticks.
Liverpool have struggled at the back, badly. No top-half team has conceded more than the Merseyside outfit, and Rodgers could invest in a new addition or two in January to help alleviate the problem.
Other keeper that have been linked include Fiorentina’s Brazilian Neto, fellow Serie A stopper Mattia Perin and Stoke City no.1 Asmir Begovic.
Enyeama has won 95 caps for his country for Nigeria and will not play in the African Cup of Nations which starts in two weeks time as Stephen Keshi failed to qualify Nigeria for the tournament in Equatorial Guinea, thereby unable to defend the title he won with the team in 2013 when South Africa hosted.
