Nuno’s Nottingham Forest were never going to be able to sign Caoimhin Kelleher from Liverpool during the January transfer window.

That is according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who has stated how essential Kelleher is to his club.

So, what did Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp say about Nottingham Forest’s Caoimhin Kelleher? Let’s have a look.

Jurgen Klopp praises Nottingham Forest-linked Caoimhin Kelleher

Nottingham Forest will play Liverpool at the City Ground in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Caoimhin Kelleher will play goal for Liverpool. Alisson is Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper, but the Brazil international is currently injured.

So Kelleher has been playing instead, and he has done well thus far. He was one of Liverpool’s greatest players against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final, prompting colleague Virgil van Dijk to laud him as “world class”.

The Daily Mail reported on February 1 that Forest sought to sign Kelleher during the January transfer window and offered Liverpool £15 million for the 25-year-old. The Merseyside club turned it down.

And, when asked about interest in his second-choice goalkeeper in the middle of the season, Klopp, who has been impressed with Forest’s attacking unit, stated that Liverpool would never move him.

Klopp told The Telegraph of Kelleher: “For me, there was no chance of him leaving, so I didn’t care who asked.”

“It would have had to be a reasonable price to allow us an opportunity to achieve something in a challenging market.

“This is not like other goalkeepers who move from A to B for £15 million or £20 million. “That is completely unrealistic and nonsense.”

Nottingham Forest still keen on Caoimhin Kelleher

Nottingham Forest did not sign Caoimhin Kelleher from Liverpool during the January transfer window, but the Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper remains a target.

The Daily Mail stated this week that if Forest stay in the Premier League next season, they will try to capture Kelleher during the summer transfer window.

Liverpool, who have already won the Carabao Cup this season, are reportedly looking for up to £25 million for the 25-year-old.

Celtic, the defending Scottish Premiership winners, are also interested in signing Kelleher.
