Liverpool rejected Nottingham Forest's £15 million challenge to sign Caoimhin Kelleher Transfers

Irish goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher, who is under contract with Liverpool until June 2026, has started games in cup competitions, but in the Premier League and in the big games, he has been second best goalkeeper due to the presence of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

In recent years, whenever the transfer market opens, a complete move away from Liverpool has been discussed. Last summer, interest from Premier League clubs such as Brentford arrived, and Scottish clubs such as Celtic are also keen on him, and the possibility of a long-awaited move has emerged this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Nottingham Forest were looking to accelerate that timetable. With the transfer deadline looming this winter, the club has offered Liverpool as much as £15 million, but they have no intention of letting go of their reserve goalkeeper mid-season and also believe he is worth more than £20 million.

Nottingham Forest’s pursuit of a goalkeeper to replace U.S. goalkeeper Matt Turner, whose ability is in doubt after a string of erratic performances in the Premier League, resulted in the acquisition of Belgian goalkeeper Mats Sels from Strasbourg.

It is no surprise that £15 million is too cheap for the Irish goalkeeper, who has excellent technique with his feet and calm keeping.

Nevertheless, the 25-year-old goalkeeper, who may leave in earnest this summer, will he stay at Anfield next season, or will he move to another club…?
