Liverpool are mulling over signing former Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm on a free transfer, according a member of Jurgen Klopp’s coaching staff.
Vorm left Spurs at the end of his contract in June and is yet to sign for a new club. The Dutchman made a total of 47 appearances during his time in north London, including four last season.
Paulo Gazzaniga displaced Vorm as Tottenham’s second-choice goalkeeper in 2018/19, which probably had an impact on the decision to let Vorm leave for nothing. The 35-year-old’s displays were not up to scratch last term, leading to Gazzaniga being given – and taking – his chance between the sticks.
Regardless of Vorm’s waning ability, he is apparently attracting interest from Liverpool. The Jurgen Klopp is said to be keen to recruit yet another goalkeeper amid concerns about Adrian, who moved to Anfield on a free transfer earlier this month.
The Spaniard suffered an ankle injury in the UEFA Super Cup final after his penalty heroics and subsequently made a mistake in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Southampton on Saturday.
And a member of Klopp’s staff has revealed Vorm is a possible target. Liverpool’s goalkeeping coach John Achterberg said (via the Daily Mail): “The arrival of (Michel) Vorm has been discussed.”
The move will not affect Spurs financially, but it will be interesting if Vorm lines up against his former club later in the campaign.
