The Goalkeeper Transfer Merry-Go-Round

When one goalkeeper transfered, it usually starts a knock-off effect as each team that sells a goalkeeper has also to buy a goalkeeper to replace that keeper. This season has marked that with the big guns Liverpool and Chelsea looking to bring in new keepers.

Liverpool goalkeeper transfer

Liverpool has signed Roma’s Alisson and was the first team to make a move causing Roma to sell and look for alternatives. The Brazilian keeper is sure to bolster the squad, but how will Roma replace their number 1? They did by buying Robin Olsen for under 10 million. The Swedish shot-stopper will look to replicate Alisson’s rise to fame just as the Brazilian did in the last three seasons. Liverpool may have to sell one if not both their other keepers with other clubs (Barcelona, etc.) expressing interest.

Chelsea goalkeeper transfer

Chelsea is looking to sell Thibaut Courtois with only a year remaining on the keeper’s contract and with him unwilling to sign a new deal or extension. His reason is he wants to be with his family in Spain, and Real Madrid could sign the keeper for under 35 million. Keylor Navas could easily slip to number 2 or leave the club in search for more playing time.

This would cause Chelsea to sign a keeper before selling Courtois. The list of nominees for the number one position at the Bridge includes Jordan Pickford, Kasper Schmeichel, Donnarumma and Jack Butland (in the order of interest showed in the transfer market). Now, whoever Chelsea sign will cost them quite a bit, but that will also leave a hole in goal for either Everton, AC Milan, Leicester City or Stoke City.

In the list of keepers above, Pickford will be above 50 million, Schmeichel above 40 million, Donnarumma above 50 million and Butland at above 30 million. (All figures in Pounds).
