Liverpool look set to miss out on a place in the Champions League next season despite a recent run of good results. 

The Reds currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, although fourth-placed Manchester United need just a single point from their final two matches to secure the final Champions League qualification spot.

United can do so by avoiding defeat against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Thursday, with Liverpool therefore likely to compete in the Europa League next term.

Ahead of next season, manager Jurgen Klopp will likely look to bolster his squad during the upcoming summer transfer window.

It has already been announced that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita and James Milner will all depart Anfield at the end of the current campaign, but now it appears that another player could leave the club.

As per Football Insider, the Merseyside outfit are expecting offers from other clubs for goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

The Irishman has played a bit-part role for the club, acting as Alisson’s deputy, but the report claims that Liverpool will not let him leave for a low price.

Kelleher is expected to be the subject of interest during the upcoming summer transfer window

Kelleher, 24, has made just three appearances so far this season, all of which have come in the domestic cup competitions.

The ‘keeper has made 20 appearances in total for Liverpool, most notably during their Carabao Cup final victory over Chelsea last season.

Despite that success, Kelleher has struggled for game time at Anfield and his current employers are therefore expecting the Irishman to be the subject of interest this summer.

Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur, Brentford and Brighton and Hove Albion are all said to be interested in the ‘keeper, who has made 10 senior appearances for the Republic of Ireland.

Although Liverpool are expecting interest in the player, the report claims that the Reds will refuse to allow Kelleher to leave for a cut-price fee.

His current contract isn’t due to expire until the summer of 2026, which puts Liverpool in a commanding position during potential negotiations.
