Thibaut Courtois, Thomas Strakosha and Liverpool's latest goalkeeping links

With Liverpool actively seeking a new goalkeeper, it is no surprise speculation is mounting over who that could be.

Roma's Alisson remains the no.1 target, although the Serie A club will continue to drive his price up, particularly after feeling short-changed following Mohamed Salah's £36.9million move last summer.

No surprise, then, that the global media continue linking other names between the sticks with a move to Anfield.

Today, the gossip comes from Italy, with two outlets offering two different prospective signings: Thibaut Courtois and Thomas Strakosha.

According to infamous transfer tittle-tattle website Gianluca Di Marzio, the Chelsea goalkeeper has emerged as a shock target for Liverpool, with his contract expiring next summer.

Di Marzio writes both the Reds and Real Madrid are eyeing a move for the Belgian, although this is counteracted with supposed Stamford Bridge interest in Alisson.

Confused? You should be.

Something a little more straightforward is TuttoMercatoWeb's claims that Lazio stopper Strakosha is on Liverpool's radar.

The Albanian international kept 17 clean sheets last season, with the 23-year-old in impressive form throughout Lazio's Serie A campaign.

With the Reds currently set to stick with Loris Karius in some form, Strakosha would represent a player who could challenge, rather than displace, the German.

Expect plenty more speculation - particularly from abroad.
