€100m Euro 2024 star on Liverpool radar as Anfield goalkeeper uncertainty grows

It’s been claimed Liverpool are interested in Georgia’s Euro 2024 hero Giorgi Mamardashvili amid ongoing uncertainty over their goalkeeping department this summer. 

The 23-year-old Valencia goalkeeper significantly augmented his reputation during the European Championship, making more saves than any other shot-stopper during the group stages. 

Georgia ultimately bowed out at the last-16 stage following defeat to Spain but Mamardashvili leaves the tournament with his head held high. 

The 6 '6 giant has been with Valencia since 2021, developing a reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in the world throughout his time at Mestalla. 

Last season he kept 13 clean sheets in 37 LaLiga games, excelling for a side who ultimately only finished ninth in the table. 

He is under contract with Los Che until 2027, having signed a renewal in 2022, and his deal is reported to include a €100 million buyout clause. Previously, the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have been linked with the Dinamo Tbilisi-schooled keeper.  

 

However, Radio Marca is now reporting that Liverpool are tracking Mamardashvili in light of potential disruption in their goalkeeping department this summer. 

With Adrian San Miguel departing for Real Betis, Arne Slot is already a man down and there could well be an exit for Caoimhin Kelleher as well. 

The 25-year-old has a desire to become a No.1 elsewhere with Liverpool setting his price at over £20 million

Alisson wanted in Saudi Arabia

And although Alisson Becker won’t push for an exit, he is open to the idea of leaving Merseyside with clubs in the Saudi Pro League interested in the 31-year-old

That could leave the Reds in the market for a long-term No.1, with Monza star Michele di Gregorio also linked as a potential arrival.

It’s unlikely that Liverpool would bring in a goalkeeper like Mamardashvili to sit in the bench and so it would take significant developments on the Alisson front before any move is considered. 

Liverpool’s long-term goalkeeping coach, John Achterberg, has also left the club after 15 years of service with German coach Fabian Otte scheduled to come to Anfield following a stint with the United States national team
