Jürgen Klopp is looking for a new number two behind Alisson Becker at Liverpool FC. Patrick Drewes from SV Sandhausen was recently targeted by the Reds. Now there is apparently another keeper from the 2nd Bundesliga on the list.
The contract of the 2014 world champion expires at the end of the season, but Zieler's contract could be extended by a year by clause; To do this, the regular Hanoverian keeper only has to make a certain number of appearances, which he will achieve by the end of the season, provided he remains injury-free. However, the transfer from Zieler to Liverpool FC would certainly not fail due to a small fee. Zieler is particularly interesting for Liverpool because of the "Homegrown Player Rule", which states that Premier League clubs must have at least eight players under contract who have played for an English club for at least three years by the age of 21. Zieler, who was trained at Manchester United, meets these requirements. Hannover's sports director Marcus Mann told Bild about the rumors about Zieler: "I haven't heard anything about it." Liverpool's interest in the Hanoverian is probably not yet concrete.
